Club Profile

In May 2007, Atty. Miriam “Mhee” C. Clorina, the 13th President of RC Dasmariñas for RY 2003-2004, went to Japan with Past President Leo Eusebio and then President Peter Clorina for the renewal of the sister agreement with RC Ishinomaki West, Japan. Inspired by the prevailing amity and goodwill, PP Mhee dreamed of chartering a new club upon her arrival in Manila.

The desire was so intense that she forthwith relayed the concept to her very close friend, Rotarians Sally delos Santos, then Anne Helen Timbang and Anne Barbara Dechosa. PP Mhee called up CP Lucien Sayuno of RC Dasmariñas to seek permission and she was advised to personally notify the incumbent president of RC Dasmariñas, Cavite, Lilian dela Cruz.

 

PP Mhee readily heeded the counsel of CP Lucien Sayuno, after which she excitedly called the first organizational meeting attended by her close friends at the then newly constructed Heaven and Greens Spa and Restaurant. Invitations spread like quick fire and before long, the group swelled to twenty-two (22) members.

There were subsequent casual meetings until PP Mhee informed PDG Josie Ang and informed her of intention to organize a new club. PDG Governor Alex Haung was designated as the District Governor’s Special Representative. Upon deliberation, the sponsoring of RC Metro Dasmariñas was discussed as part of the agenda.

The group brainstormed on the prospective name for the club and the first choice was Rotary Club of Cavite Centro.

The said name, however, was disapproved as it sounded similar to an existing club. Several other names were considered until PP Mhee thought of forming a name out of the name of the mother club, RC Manila Metro. With this in mind, the name Rotary Club of Metro Dasmariñas was conceived and unanimously adopted.

The charter papers for RC Metro Dasmariñas were approved by the Rotary International on April 15, 2009, and amidst a luau-inspired setting at the heaven and Greens Spa, at Dasmariñas, Cavite, RCMD was formally recognized on June 30, 2009.

With the birth of RCMD, CP Mhee’s has turned into realty!

 

The Rotary of Metro Dasmarinas officially came into existence on April 15, 2009. On its very first year, RCMD enthusiastically planned and immersed itself into laudable projects, drawing great inspiration from the energetic officers of District 3810. RCMD’s silent and decisive acts finally paid off as it was awarded
“rookie Club of the Year” thus bringing glory to God and pride to its mentors and members.
