After a productive stint in the Throne, the Royal Matron and Patron stepped down to pave the way for the ascension of the Court's next batch of duly elected and appointed officers. 

After the Uncrowning Ceremony of outgoing Royal Matron Baby Liza Ciencia, Royal Matron-elect Ma. Cecilia Landingin and Royal Patron-elect Arnel Landingin were duly installed together with the elected and appointed officers for the incoming Amaranthine Year in a ceremony for such presided by SK Danilo Angeles (PGRM). 

HL Elenita David (PGRM) presided over the newly installed Royal Matron's Crowning Ceremony who afterwards formally assumed her duties in presiding over the Court during the ensuing Amaranthine Year.

And thus will Model Court be for AY 2017-2018.

"Thank you, good bye, and hello!" --- HL BABY LIZA & SK SHUBERT CIENCIA.

As the last acts of his incumbency, the Riyal Matron led the Model Court contingent to the installation ceremonies of Pantabangan-Bonari Court No. 46, Munoz Royal Court No. 17 and Nueva Ecija Court No. 31.

As was the case last year, the Court's attendance is not just an expression of solidarity with its fellow subordinate Courts but also for its members to observe actual floorworks and thereby improve their proficiency on Amaranthine rituals.

When Bro. Val Santos stepped down as the Venerable Master of the Munoz Bodies of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rites, the Royal Matron of Model Court and the immediate Past Master of Model Lodge was there to celebrate a productive year-long partnership.

Together, that partnership was able to launch joint activities on Community Medical Outreach and Nutrient Supplementation, the annual "Operation Tuli" and "Adopt-a-School" projects, a school-based and yearlong "Free Lunch" project, a scholarship project for girls, and charity drive for an orphanage.  

At the same time, the Royal Matron and her entourage also witnessed the installation of three Sir Knights as the Three Lights of the Munoz Bodies: SK Jesus Tito Tuquero of San Jose City Court No. 55 as Venerable Master, and the Court's own SK Aquilino Valino Jr. as Senior Warden and SK Shubert Ciencia, its incumbent Royal Patron, as Junior Warden. 


The Court's last full regular meeting for Amaranthine Year 2016-2018 turned out to be a blast with the presence of HL Perla G. Reyes of Legend Court 166 in New York and the Deputy Supreme Royal Matron to Hawaii, who with her piano skills acted as the pro temp Musician during the meeting where she also handed a donation of $150 to the Royal Matron. 

In the same meeting, the Royal Matron also accepted a Plaque of Appreciation from SK Jojit Floro as a symbol of his gratitude to the Court's support during his incumbency as the Master of Model Lodge No. 33. 

The Court's birthday celebrants for the months of March and April were also feted which is the Royal Matron's last act on such before she steps down on April 1. 

It was a happy and productive Amaranthine Year and it is fitting to celebrate it with a boodle feast  that was also the Royal Matron and Patron's thanksgiving to the members of the Court who supported them throughout their incumbency.

Model Court is a tightly knitted family and empathy among its members is a defining trait.

So when a member underwent a chemotherapy procedure for breast cancer, the Honored Ladies of the Court led by the Royal Matron came together in a solid show of solidarity to one of their own. 

It was for her benefit and those who share the same predicament that the Court unanimously agreed to make breast cancer prevention advocacy a major priority project for next year.

The school plans to improve its perimeter fence to secure its students and premises but it does not have enough funds to do so.

So Model Court teamed up again with Model Lodge and the Munoz Bodies (AASR) and raised enough funds to procure 30 bags of cement that were turned-over to the Kabulihan Elementary School in Sto. Domingo, Nueva Ecija for the improvement of their school perimeter fence.

It was a fitting finale to the Court's a year-long partnership with its host Blue Lodge and Scottish Rites Masons in community service and charity work.

On the Day of Hearts, Model Lodge and the Sir Knights of Model Court feted their Honored Ladies with a night out sans the the kids and cares of the world.

The Master of the Lodge himself, SK Fitzgerald Hierco, led in presenting three red roses each to the Honored Ladies and sisters in attendance in the first ever Valentine's Party to be organized by both the Lodge and the Court.

It was a "Model Lodge loves Model Court" thing but the spotlight is on the ladies of the Lodge and the Court.

In other words, "Sina Ateng and bida"!

And the Sir Knights made sure the Honored Ladies felt the love of that night.

It was also an opportunity to reach out to former members of the Court who came and graced the occasion, and hopefully encourage them to renew their membership.

And a moment of bonding with other members of Amaranthine Courts within the jurisdiction of District V.

On this night, Model Lodge and Model Court wishes all those who loved, have been loved, and are always in love wherever they are in the world!

Model Court through its Royal Matron is proud to be part of the first ever Nueva Ecija Personal Essay Writing Workshop that was participated by 15 budding writers from Nueva Ecija who were selected to participate after a tough screening process. 

The Royal Matron helped raised funds to support the workshop including facilitating a meeting with Bro. Mario Salvador, San Jose City Mayor, who immediately provided much needed financial assistance.

The workshop was facilitated by US-based multiple Palanca awardee Wilfredo "Oyet" Pascual, Jr. who is also launching "Kilometer 0", a collection of his best personal essays. 

Wilfredo Pascual is a close friend of the Royal Patron who with their CLSU-affiliated friends helped mobilize support for that made the successful workshop possible.
