Despite the long and tiring ride, the members were on their toes the following morning. Who wouldn’t with a sumptu- ous Filipino breakfast on the table, a perfect view of the river, and a warm welcome from the owner, Mrs. Venie Sajorda, past president of PAARL Short after, the group proceeded to the meeting venue to formally start the planning workshop. The exchange of ideas between the members of the board made the discussion very lively and fun despite the pressure. The success of this year’s activities is dependent on how well the members will respond to the call of support from the people whom the members themselves chose to be their ser- vants— the 2010 PAARL Board.
