Chairwoman Peachy Pasion
One of what I consider as perks of being in an organization is the socialization part. We get to meet new people over a discussion of advocacies. We learn different perspectives and inspirations and we discover approaches and experiences that are new to us.
This RY, I have also been chosen as Chairman of the Joint Effort of Pasay Rotary Cubs (JEPROCS) which had me a little concerned because I was used to being focused on our club in Pasay Cyber City only. But it also got me thinking that there must be something great that needs to be done and I am lucky to be chosen to become part of it.
Last September 1, JEPRCOS launched its first project for this RY by taking part in the Brigada Eskwela at Juan Sumulong Elementary School focusing on the Support for Environment and Economic and Community Development aims of the project. Though it is still a continuing struggle whether to allow schools to go back to face-to-face learning, it has been a yearly tradition for parents and teachers to organize the Brigada Eskwela to maintain the beauty and neatness of schools.
With the combined contributions from all the Rotary Clubs in Pasay, we were able to donate paint, plants, and loam soil for Juan Sumulong Elementary School. The smiles and gratitude from the school administration and personnel were rewarding enough for JEPROCS.
Thank you to all the clubs, the joint effort was indeed overwhelming: RC Pasay Cyber City, RC Pasay Metro Sunrise, RC Dewey Boulevard Pasay, RC Pasay Southeast, RC Pasay MIA, RC Pasay Millenium, RC Pasay, RC Pasay EDSA, RC Pasay Ilustrado, RC Pasay Silangan, RC Pasay Friedens, RC Pasay Harrison, RC Pasay Maharlika, RC Pasay West, RC Pasay MOA, RC Pasay Marina, RC Pasay Business District, and RC Pasay Coral Way.
Working with the different RCs of Pasay proved to be fulfilling and made the project easier to accomplish with little jokes and varied stories on the side during virtual meetings. It was fun working with all of them and to say that this is just the start of something worthy gives me a sense of excitement. Thank you also to our District Governor Robert Koa for encouraging us to work together.
With this much support and unity, we can look forward to more gratifying projects in the whole of Pasay and to wherever we may be needed most.
