2 Ang Kampo No. 3 - July 16, 2014 Rotary Children’s Party P ast RI President Mat Caparas encouraged all Rotary clubs in the Philippines to hold a children’s party every July 1st. On Wednesday, July 9th, we did our part and had a children’s party at the Fort Aguinaldo Elementary School inside Camp Aguinaldo. Despite the heavy downpour of rain, we kept our afternoon date with the wee tots of our country’s enlisted men, our unsung heroes. The activity was held at the school’s open auditorium. Our Rotaractors, assisted by BCP Badette Pineda and PP Beth Directo, hosted a brief program of storytelling, singing, and dancing. The children were treated to a meal of spaghetti, fried chicken and orange juice, after which they played games and were awarded prizes for their sportsmanship. RCCA members pooled their efforts and took time off from their busy week to make the day a memorable one for the children. More than 45 kids and their parents were treated to an afternoon delight of fun, games and food. Rotarian Raquel Santos graced the event as well and donated gifts and toys for the kids. The smiles on the children's faces seemed to melt the hearts of the members who came to share in the afternoon frolic. As the day ended, our members gathered at the Camp Aguinaldo Officer's Club where we recapped the afternoon's activity as we held our weekly meeting in the spirit of Rotary friendship and camaraderie. Thank you, Rotary for the opportunity to serve and share our blessings with others.
