Oak Brook building ribbon cutting for the states art.

In my own opinion,

Last Wednesday around 4 O’clock PM a ribbon cutting ceremony took place at what is known as the states lion club den “Lion’s Cubs International” the building sits on state property next to the St. Joseph Catholic Cathedral in Tagbilaran City.

The building is known by the name of Oak Brook and for sometime it was used as a free children’s library. But with more access to a savvy way of learning and communicating the library for the children had become extinct.

A foreigner from Israel with a desire for Boholano arts had met with AE. Damalerio the provincial administrator of Bohol to discuss some sort of a venue to have these great artist talents exposed. He told me that he noticed this building (Oak Brook) was sort of lonely and not utilized.

He suggested to the government of Bohol to find a way in somehow to make use of the building which sits on state property. The building itself was founded and funded by Jun Zoilo Dejarasco. Jun was also the of the founder of the well known media outlet known as the Bohol Chronicle/DYRD radio corporation. Dejarasco was also a great member of the Lion’s club.

Prior to the ribbon cutting the state governor said that as a congressman in the 1st. Dist of Bohol he would drive by the building and see that there was not much activity going inside of the building on so according to him he had made a letter to Tagbilaran City Host Lions Club to ask permission to make some sort of use of the building.

Prior to permission by the City Host Lions President George “Ahoy” Lim a key was borrowed by the states administrator. Bohol Lion memorabilia was taken of the walls and neatly instructed to be put away by the states helpers. Damalerio attained the key from President Lim’s wife Fely.

A bonsai tree collection and posted security guards were already standing in position at the entry of the building and at the doorway before any kind of discussions had been agreed upon my the Lion club members and its officers.

A pre-meeting had taken place with the state administrator with just three Lion embers present Fely Lim, 2nd Vice Pres Priscilla Richards and Bebe Melicore in where this was the time that state said that they will utilize the building and share any proceeds with the Lion clubs.

During a past regular meeting this month Damalerio in where Damalerio was guest speaker and told the club that the owners of Bo’s Coffee wants to rent the roof top for a coffee shop or internet cafe.

According to the state the rental would be shared between the state and the lion clubs.

The museum now displays art work such as sculptures, paintings and drawings done in watercolor, acrylic, charcoals, oils…etc. All work being done with the hands of the Boholano.

Ribbon cutters for the event were Governor Edgar Chatto, Tagbilaran City Host Lion President George Lim and Mam Butalid from the provincial arts dept.

Tagbilaran City Lions to meet up with Provincail Admin. Damalerio

Oakbrook building which sits on provincial property near to St. Joseph Cathedral in Tagbilaran City has been under security post watches as it is provincial property and the governor of Bohol would like to facilitate the building for making money for the province.

About three months ago Prov. Admin. A Damalerio asked Lion President member George Lim for the key to get inside of the Oakbrook building.

When going to the building later to get materials for the annual Lion international “Peace Poster” contest he and other members had discovered that Lion club memorabilia had been taken down from the walls and put away.

When the project was over Lion’s president George Lim explained to the club members what he had observed of the clubs meeting place? Members of the club once hearing this had hurried over to their meeting place which is also used as a children library and were greeted by security guards from the province.

Those members who had gone there were Fely Lim, DMD. Velma Lim, BB Melicore, and Lion’s Vice President Priscilla Richards.

Faces of the members were red and some personal sentiment could be read in their faces and comments as to why the members were not properly informed ahead of time of the provinces plans to re-do the inside and make plans to have part of the old building renovated to be leased out.

One to two days after the shocking news Provincail Admin. A. Damalerio met up with Fely Lim, BB Melicore, and Priscilla Richards to discuss the plans of the local governor to put the Oakbrook building into some use to raise monies for both the province and the club.

The meeting this weekend will include the topic discussion with Damalerio on what it is the club together with the provincial governor can agree upon for the use of the building.

Talakayan Sa Isuyang Pulis (Denhi sa Bohol)

About 7 months ago Bohol’s Camp Dagohoy came up with an ideal to help with media and police relationships not just in Tagbilaran but for the entire province of Bohol.

Some of the earlier forums were on gun safety laws and practice which included taking the media to a shooting range to show their skills at where to shoot when in times of absolute necessity.

The forum has also talked about media personalities being stalked and how to look for tell tale signs of being preyed upon. Most times anyone who is a target for a hired hit-man to get at will have his subject followed for daily routine and by that he will figure on when would be the best time to target his subject.

Other Talakayan forums are being held at various municipalities across the province. So far the group has traveled to Clarin, Candijay, and Pitogo a small island off of the coast of Ubay.

The groups next get together with the provincial pulis of Bohol is expected to be next month in Mabini.

I will start updating readers on what are the police accomplishments as far as arrest are then discuss each municipals police stations goals that are being discussed with the local ,media.

In the forums about 7-8 PI PNP from different municipalities will attend and give reports to the media.

Stay tuned for up to date police report happenings across Bohol.

My write ups can be read in Bohol Chronicle just after every Talakayan Police Forum on a monthly basis.
