There were of course the usual fellowships after each meeting.

And there were birthdays and a dinner to celebrate another successful bowling season.

Meetings are who we are, activities are what we do, and fellowships are what keeps us together.

On the Court's 7th regular stated meeting for the current Amaranthine Year, the Royal Matron distributed to members copies of "Transformation" --- a book on stories of women's resilience and challenges in times of disasters --- as part of the Court's continuing effort to enhance the understanding of its members on Women's Empowerment.

The stories in the books illustrate the particular needs of women during disasters, their coping-up mechanisms, and the necessary measures required to protect women and children who are most vulnerable to sexual abuses in disaster situations. 

After the meeting, the Royal Matron and the Court Secretary convened a caucus to validate the financial records of each member to facilitate the collection of all past due accounts until end-December 2016, and all current accounts until end-March 2017 in line with the Court's effort of enhancing the integrity and stability of its financial position.

SK Fitzgerald Hierco then distributed the materials for the gowns to be worn by the Honored Ladies during his installation as Master of Model Lodge 373 after which the usual post-meeting Amaranthine Fellowship followed.

In commemoration of International Women's Day, Model Court was invited to attend a Women's Market in Eastwood City that showcased products from women-led social enterprises from all over the Philippines, and featured talks on women empowerment, leadership, and entrepreneurship from celebrity speakers. 

The event gave the Court's delegation an opportunity to observe women's empowerment at work and share stories with rural women leaders on campaigning for and realizing the true essence of women's economic empowerment. 

Listening to celebrity speakers talk on various topics of women's empowerment also provided the Court's delegation with possible platforms where they can evolve and launch the Court's campaign and work on such for the benefit of the rural women of Nueva Ecija.  

At the end of the day, Model Court forged a partnership with the Pambansang Kalipunan ng mga Kababaihan sa Kanayunan (PKKK) and the KALIKASAN-NE Women's Forum to support social enterprise development for women in Nueva Ecija and campaign for the full implementation of the Magna Carta for Women.
