And in recognition of their proficiency on Masonic floorworks, the incoming "Three Lights" Lodge 373 were exempted from the District's annual proficiency practical exam that was held at the Masonic Temple of Pantabangan-Bonari Lodge No. 203 after the traditional commemoration of Bro. Jose P. Rizal's 119th year of martyrdom that was held for the first in Rizal, Nueva Ecija.

NOVEMBER MILESTONES

In the end, it was Lodge 373 who was tasked to represent Masonic District RIII-D in the Central Luzon Ritual Olympics during the Central Luzon Multi-District Convention in Subic, Zambales.

The Lodge lost by the minutest hairline to eventually place second again, a bit of a disappointment but a solid affirmation of its name and what Model Lodge No. 373 stands for.


November is indeed a month of "near misses" that led to more "2nd place finishes" with the White Team of Cabanatuan Lodge No. 53, Nueva Ecija Lodge No. 73, Talavera Lodge No. 273, and Model Lodge No. 373 finishing second overall in the District Ladies of Mason Bowling Tournament...


...and the Model Court No. 55 getting second place overall during the District Sportsfest of the Order of the Amaranth.


But really, it's not the color of the medals that counts but how the games were played.

DOUBLE SLAM DUNK IN SEPTEMBER

It's not the baskets made during Part II of a basketball game against the Army's Special Operations Command Team, or the marks hit during a shooting drill that followed the game.


It is the trophies that were brought home from the District Lambskin Apron Elocution contest where the Lodge placed third among a field of 18 competing Lodges through the representation of Bro. Ernesto T. Jimenez, and Team 373 losing by a hair to settle for second in the District Ritual Olympics.




And of course the opportunity of witnessing the Grand Master himself --- Bro. Tomas G. Rentoy III --- preside over an exemplification of the 1st and 2nd sections of the Third Degree of Masonry at the Grand Lodge of the Philippines.

HEROIC AUGUST

And as in past meetings, the brethren of Lodge 373 heroically endured the monthly prick of love from the Honored Ladies of Model Court No. 55 of the Order of the Amaranth who came as always to check on the brethren's FBS and blood temperature levels.


Meanwhile, Team 373 emerged as the 3rd runner-up in the Class D Category of the annual District Bowling Tournament and, in their own right, a champion in terms of camaraderie.



The Lodge also joined our soldiers in planting trees for the "Broadcastreeing Project" of the Kapisanan ng mga Broadcasters sa Pilipinas...


...paraded with the brethren of Masonic District RIII-D in Baler, Aurora to commemorate the 137th birth anniversary of Pres. Manuel L. Quezon who is a Past Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of the Philippines...


...spruced up the Heroes' Park in Baloc, Sto. Domingo, Nueva Ecija for the annual National Heroes Day celebration.


...and heroically played a basketball game with the brave warriors of the Philippine Army's Special Operations Command.
