Stand Up for Life

A Rotarian will always be a Rotarian. Despite his busy schedule Baguio City Congressman Nicasio Aliping, Jr. found time to be with his fellow Rotations and shared his first 100 days of service report during the cluster meeting of Rotary International District 3790 Cluster 1C held on October 10 at Baguio Country Club.
The congressman said his love for service has been an inspiration as manifested in the number of achievements he had in his 100 days in congress. The love for service is a living principle and unique identity of a true Rotarian.
One of the highlights of his achievements in office include his move towards the realization of the BLISTT concept, a long time plan that will develop Baguio, La Trinidad, Itogon, Sablan, Tuba, and Tublay through an appropriate legislation. A talk with Benguet Congressman Ronald Cosalan was started to get the support needed for the plan.
The congressman had also taken steps to fulfill the proposed bill for the revision of the City Charter which was earlier filed by then Congressman and now Mayor Mauricio Domogan. Another big accomplishment is the setting up of a foundation to complement social responsibility guided by the principle of transparency and accountability.
In answer to the question of one of the spectators on the issues pertaining to ancestral land claims, Aliping said that a resolution will be filed to investigate all issued ancestral land titles not in accordance with IPRA Law which include the lots in South Drive and Wright Park. He himself is wondering why the mentioned properties were given land titles.
The invitation of the congressman for the Rotary activity is just one way for the Rotarians to be more aware of what is going on in the community through first hand information. It is through this activity that great minds meet together and become committed in addressing pressing challenges to uplift humanity and change a community.
The cluster meeting was lead by RI District 3790 Governor Linda Winter, District Secretary Laura Montes, Cluster 1C Assistant Governor Lyman Salvador, and Cluster IC Secretary Audrey "Olay" Sungduan.
All the presidents of Cluster 1C were also in full force with Uwe Koeller of RC Baguio, KC Nevada of RC Baguio North, "SJ" San Jose of RC Baguio South, Teofilo Malapit of RC Metro Baguio, Ramon Danas of RC La Trinidad, Edward Doguiis of RC Baguio Summer Capital, RJ Lu of RC Baguio Sunrise, Jean Hamada-Del Rosario of Baguio Downtown Session, and Clare Lalwet of RC Sagada who all worked together to make the event possible.
