THE Bacolod Eagles Club (BEC), the local chapter of Fraternal Order of Eagles (Philippine Eagles), is marking its second anniversary with a week-long activity this week.
The activity from August 1 to 7 this year included mass, various charity works, tree planting and cleanup drive, among others.
The group, in a press statement, said that despite the tremendous hardships amid the current pandemic, "we all must continue to celebrate the gift of life, love to one another, and perform our duty to help our brothers and sisters while following all the health protocols."
By conducting these kinds of activities, the BEC said "we can ensure that we will not only bolster camaraderie with each member."
These will also embolden its advocacy of strong brotherhood and commitment to the country and God.
"We also believe that helping the less privileged people is our moral obligation," it said, "thus, we need to be part of the solution in helping our own countrymen without expecting any return."
The activities are mass, caravan and orientation of new applicants on August 1; cleanup drive, feeding and Barangayanihan Gift Giving on August 2; Basic First Aid and CPR lecture on August 3; Golf Driving Range Day at Buklod Driving Range on August 4; tree planting at Barangay Granada on August 5; Gun Firing Range Day at NIR on August 6; and Mountain Bike Challenge at Bantug and Fellowship Night on August 7.
For the organization, seeing their fellows being empowered and their lives uplifted, is priceless.
"This is what we should embrace in our day-to-day living," it stressed. (PR)
