    by C.K. Now that winter is over and spring had finally sprung, it’s time to spend more outdoors than indoor activities.  I’m  sure that even the pets we have wants to wonder around in this wonderful weather.  I just got a glimpse of the crocuses on our rock garden and a few perennials  coming back from [...]

PASOC – Pangasinan Society of Calgary

by: Tata Gascon-Delos Reyes

25th Christmas Celebration at Radisson Hotel

The milestone of success for this club hit the marking of 2 decades and 4 years and is still counting. I had the very first time opportunity to attend a Society of leaders and members who mostly hailed from where my Father’s roots began. Pangasinan.

The Get-together for the Holidays they had last December 22 at the Radisson Hotel proved how well the Club has been since its inception in 1988. The Officers and leaders headed by its outgoing President Mr. Leopoldo Mendoza, all dressed in their best, came to jointly celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the awarding of their 2012 roster of Scholars, and the turn over of their Executive Officers.

Though I have known incoming President Jovencio Bautista, Jr. from the many years I’ve lived in Calgary, I had never heeded to his invitation to join and become a member of PASOC. My excuses in the past included the busy schedule I have in raising my children and tending to both household and career life. But now that they have grown and are not as much dependent on my presence, I believe that it is time. I resolve to bring glory and honor to my father’s legacy and humble beginnings in Dagupan, Pangasinan.

Listening to Mr. Bautista deliver his acceptance speech as his time has finally arrived to lead the pact, I knew that his term would be a good one. He focuses on the simple gifts of great leadership. And as he humbly admitted, his line of thoughts are congruent to the Club’s mission. Focusing on being able to help the less fortunate, PASOC aims to better the weaving of their compassionate fabric. The projects in line for the year though will duplicate most of the annual activities they do, the leadership of Mr. Bautista will add more fresh thoughts of leadership quality to enable the members express themselves and participate deeply. And that is what true leadership and genuine camaraderie is all about. I wish this year will be more fruitful and more members will join…including me.

Congratulations!
