Valedictory/Yearend Report

My fellow RC Makati Rotarians:

I stand before you today happy to report on everything we have done this past Rotary Year. Allow me to start by saying that from the beginning of the year we have always emphasized that we wanted to provide you, our members all the opportunities to participate in actual Rotary Projects and activities. Last Rotary Year under IPP Carlo, our country was ravaged by so many disasters that his term was marked by the need to undertake relief efforts and address immediate needs of victims. This meant that some projects had to take the backseat.

I am happy to note that this past year, the country has been spared from too many natural disasters thus allowing us to go back to the true work of Rotary, i.e. doing projects on the ground to address the various needs of our communities under the 6 areas of focus and having fun fellowship activities for our members.
