The Club held a Fireside Chat last August 27, 2015 at the residence of PP Shirley Escano in Golden Village, Cagayan de Oro.  Past Presidents Nelia Lee (2nd from left) and Boleen Faburada (extreme right) shared their thoughts and feelings about “how becoming a Rotarian” meant to them.  Others in photo are (L-R) Fireside Project Chair PE Ching Ferrer; PP Minda Gaerlan and PP Ella Yu who each gave a brief re-orientation about Rotary; President Conchitina Borja-Lagonera, and; PP Myra Balandra, who also shared her experience in Rotary Foundation.  PE Ching gave each of the speakers an herbal plant as token.

Club History

The club started with ladies who were not just acquaintances but close friends. They decided to give meaning to this closeness, thus the Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro East Urban was born.
