Welcome to Zamboanga City! Thanks to the Rotary Club of Zamboanga City North, 15 Koreans from Seongnam Seonil, South Korea came and enjoyed the splendors of our city. They are members of the Rotary Club of Seongnam, South Korean. Both clubs have been visiting and exchanging pleasantries  with each other for the last five year.

Aside from attending the induction and turn-over ceremonies of Rotary North last July 13 at Grand Astoria Hotel, they donated 33 complete sets of computers with tables to Divisoria Elementary worth more than P800-thousand, went to Zambo Ecozone, played golf at Zamboanga Golf Club, and paid a courtesy visit to Zamboanga City Mayor Beng Climaco. They went for swimming and played volleybal in Sta Cruz Island too. And in the evening, they had a night-out at Zalos.

The Department of Tourism-9 under Director Mary June Bugante gave them a rousing welcome at the airport with Filipino dances and made the tour arrangements. The new president of Rotary Zamboanga North is Jimmy Saavedra who took over from Osbert Malinao.

Gamsa Hamnida! Muchas Gracias! Thank You! Seongnam Rotarians.
