Dunk tank was repaired by Cootie Aukshun and will be in action at Chili Cook Off.

 

Blind School project was a new wash basin and kitchen wash area.

 

Plans were made to rebury Jose Nesperios (Medal of Honor Recipient) in Lingsat Cemetary.

 

Closing of the VFW post home required moving new scratches to Paradise Inn after VFW Mtg approx. 11am.  Hospital was near 200% but nudged out of first by a few % points.

 2012-2014

  

Record for officer were not available from 2012 to 2014. Although we continued to do work with the blind school in Baguio. And we Reburied Medal of Honor Recipient , Jose Nesperios in the Lingsat Cometary next to the Ortegas clan. We conducted Veterans Day rememberance at this cript since the reburied.  Additionally during these years the Blind School received other contributor so we relinguished our assistance to major projects. We instead began a Diaper donation to new mothers at the local hospitals and in Baguio. John LaGrew became the chairman of this project which became our main project.

 

In Jan 2012 we were over 106% already in Hospital Work and have never dropped under the 100% Goal.
