Dr. Jaime, Dr. Dahl, Dr. Charles and Debbie arrived today in Iloilo at least half an hour after the whole team arrived from Manila. We had fun in Roxas City, too. The support and welcome reception was overwhelming and thanks to Rotary Club of Roxas and its provincial government, too. Food was great but most especially, the Rotarians here can’t wait to see us back for the next visit..yes, and seafoods were served being the place as SEAFOOD’s CAPITAL.
We had a successful series of meetings with Governor Vic Tanco, Mayor Bermejo and the Provincial Hospital Officers and staff, tagging along are other Rotarian members, too.
Also, we had a side trip to some neighboring Barangays and the museums…all were assisted by the host club RC Roxas. I guess, the place is positive area for the next mission in 2010.
Oh, we visited today the hospital and talked to the ENT head Dr. Bryan and other residents, too and everything was organized by them, we are impressed. Goodluck everyone!
Oh well, we miss the “old timers” team, we missed you here now for the 2009 mission. And welcome to the new ones…am sure you will have fun! Thanks also for making a difference in the life our children here in the Philippines..you are great guys!
(Roxas pics to follow by next week though. Thanks)
Cheers guys! Megs
