Brother Carpenter Arpa III (Right) and  Brother Frank Maletsky (Left) at the Public school Library handing over the book stands to the librarian July 20. 1970.

September 2, 1972: "Final Initiation - This was the day agreed upon by all brothers and sisters to be the final initiation day so as not to disturb the pledgees on their studies in preparation for the mid-term exams, September 4, 1972.   It was held at brother Franklin Maletsky's farm in Tumaga, Zamboanga City. It was the best final initiation that we had seen and observed. The plan, the applications and the process were perfectly done.   With such great number of applicants only ten passed: Brothers: Neal Gacrama, Oscar Bagsican, Efraem Pabres, Plaridel Marcelo.  Sisters: Gilda Belleza, Luisita Garcia, Luz Illustrisimo, Elizabeth Javier, Bernadette Mijares, Georgina Pantaleon."

Single file they March on into the unknown. "Camp Horton" Frank Maletsky's farm is waiting for them. Pictured here is Teetang Garcia, who was one of the pledgees that passed.

Created for Apo PhilippinesΑΦΩ Alpha Phi Omega Philippines on May 27, 2008 by Frank Maletsky (3/14/1970 ID# 0213-1970-4420), who is a chartered member of Beta Nu. Last March 17, 2009 brother Frank Maletsky created the new "dynamic" interactive, and collaborative webpage for Beta Nu  to replace this html and "static" page. All new edits are done at this new site. Everybody can participate. He went one step further and created a simple public page for every brother and sister.  His goal is to help unite all APO brothers and sisters around the world through a common relevant and collaborative manner by providing the portal where all can connect. The 3rd stanza of our toast song reads:

"Brothers/sisters Strong the circle we.
Ever mindful, ever serving
All humanity."
This is when we clasp the hands
of the brothers/sisters next to us.
Let's clasp hands over the internet.

Be a leader, Be a friend, Be of Service. Join us in this quest. View the online APO Roster. Create your own profile page.
