At least 138 respected individuals were added to the elite fraternity group of the Mindanao Shrine Club-Davao chapter or the so-called Agila Shriners.
This after they were initiated during the three-day 1st Hot Sands Ceremonials last October 6 to 8, 2011 held in various areas here in Davao City.
Most of them were businessmen coming from Cagayan de Oro City, Davao City, Iligan City, and other parts of Mindanao. Some are officials of the Philippine National Police, private practicing lawyers, engineers, architects, among others.
Efren Marquez, president of the Mindanao Shrine Club-Davao chapter, said that the main objective of the group is to become philantrophists in helping those who need their belevolence.
Marquez said every year their membership is growing, a good sign that more people are turning to be good Samaritans.
