THE Rotary Club of Cebu inducted the new set of officers for 2021-2022 with Jacob Ong as president.
The induction was held at Ayala Malls Central Bloc Cinema 1 on June 26, 2021. The event was exclusive for club members because of strict health guidelines set by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases. Guests from other places logged in on Zoom.
The new officers are Jacob Ong (president), Hector Almario (vice president), Charles Ong (secretary), and Edward Tan Ting (treasurer).
The directors are Walter Cang, George Paraoan, Joey Ontanillas, Shigejiro Onda, Ken Ngo, Javi Sala and Melchor Alejandro.
The advisers are Ibarra Panopio, Renato Kintanar, Bing Martinez, Robin Ong, Stephen Chian, Bernard Sia, Michael Torres and immediate past president Edward Gaisano.
In accepting the club leadership, Ong said: “It is a gift to be able to serve and an opportunity to use whatever small talents or resources we may have to do good. Not everyone is given this opportunity.”
He thanked the club members’ expression of support for him.
“I am excited to embark on this journey of doing service. I sincerely believe that being able to help others gives meaning to why we are here,” he said. (PR)
