Rotary International District 3820, led by District Governor Ma. Lewina “Lewi” Tolentino, recently celebrated its 113th founding anniversary with event host Rotary Club Sta. Rosa Central at the Alonte Sports Center.
The venue reverberated with cheers and exploded with colors and talents of the candidates of the Mr. and Ms. Rotary contest, which showcased gorgeous Rotarians from Areas 1, 2 and 3 of the district.
Rep. Arlene Arcillas, RC Sta. Rosa Central’s past president, said whoever would be adjudged Mr. and Ms. Rotary will embody what the organization is: committed, selfless and just.
D3820 past district governor Consuelo “Chit” Lijauco, former Manila Standard lifestyle editor, awarded the 2nd Runner Up sash to Alyssa May Mariano from RC Lucena North.
Arcillas added the pageant winners will act as ambassadors of goodwill to bring Rotary closer to people and let the public know of the programs being carried out by the club.
DG Tolentino also stressed that Rotary remains focused on the following areas: education, water and sanitation, literacy, and other community upliftment advocacy.
Ray Caparros, district governor of D5220 of Modesta, California also graced the occasion, bringing home a water sanitation project for D3820.
