Sis Ging's Birthday at Pards Restaurant - July 17, 2011

Last July 17, 2011 at Pards Restaurant, Quirino Ave., Davao City, was the birthday celebration of first lady Sis Ging Panlaque, the wife of the Illustrious VW Carmelo C. Panlaque, DDGM and Auditor.

This affair immediately followed the badminton tournament where the Podomo Lodge No. 294 retained its champion position.

Sis Ging was astonished because this occasion actually was a surprised gift from the DDGM. The family and friends sang the birthday song and fellowship followed.

To you Sis Ging, Happy Birthday and many more birthdays to come! (Photos by Bro. Marlon Rebaya)

2011 Badminton Sportsfest - July 17, 2011

The defending black and yellow and current champion Podomo Team composed of men's doubles WB Loreto P. Gamalong, PM and Bro. Marlon O. Rebaya with Sis Balot Rebaya in the mixed doubles is undoubtedly the formidable trio of the tournament.

At Smash and Drop Badminton Court, near Bankerohan last July 17, 2011 is where the Podomo Team retained its Champion position in the badminton arena. With the supportive family, sons and daughters, cheered as the Podomo Team won each game with ease and finesse.

The other Lodges tried their best but their best couldn't make them to the top. Kudos to Digos Masonic Lodge No. 198 and Toril Lodge No. 208 for being the 1st runner up for mixed doubles and men's doubles respectively. (Photos by Bro. Marlon Rebaya)
