Distiguished Damas Sembradoras
Ing. José del Carmen Corro González, Presidente del
Club Sembradores Veracruz, A. C., Sra. Margarita Hermida de Corro, and
Members constituents of the Consejo
Directivo de AICSA:
Obligations suitable of the university
teaching, had prevented me, from been here with you at this Convención
Annual, to be held at the beautiful
Puerto de Veracruz, with a dear Club
that in January of this year, reached the 55 years of a fruitful life of
Amistad y Civismo.
I had request to the Presidente of my
Club Regiomontano, the Lic. Humberto Treviño García, to be the Secretario
Delegado at this Convención, and that therefore, represent me at the
functions characteristic of the post, as are established through the by laws
that govern us.
I would like, previous to my report to
you of what had happen this last six months, after the Miniconvención de
Monterrey, in May of this year,to read to you, some paragraphs of the
newsman and writer Fernando Benítez, at his work La ruta de Cortés.
“The friendliness of the Veracruzano,
builds on me a powerful reagent. the thin air of the altiplanicie, the same
in México, that in the Perú, create human beings solemn, sad and
ceremonious. The courtesy, is a plant that bloom at two thousand meters
above sea level, the same could be said of the theology, at least in lands
in America. While at the altiplanicie, the life is adorned with a delicate
dignity, that already enclose a gnawing and active tendency to mysticism, at
the belts of the coast of the life, is infected by one carefree sensuality,
rue may be, but innocent and happy.”
¿On which location in México, it is
feasible to draw attention to the scenes, that are build up at the plaza de
Veracruz? The palace of Ayuntamiento, with its white columns, and with its
graceful tower, it is possible at the balmy night under the shining stars,
one theatrical set, at the same measurement that they are the vestibules
vividly illuminated, and the trees with trimmed foliage. The costeñas
guitars, the sones jarochos, and the marimba, play ceaseless. The muffled
music of the municipal band, reach by squalls. In this shacked air, mingle
the shouts of the vendors, the conversations of the patrons, the disputes of
the sailors, the chat of the awakened birds, and of the muchachas that walk
sending back greetings, and flirtatious remarks. But this uproar does not
change the senses, but exalt them, as the wine of the mediterranean
¡The serenata veracruzana !Necessary
rest-cure, for the sad men of the plateau. Life is outdoors, half dressed,
with sharp appetite and the head dizzy, because the sensuality had been
fully recovered, and with it, the certainty of our corporeal nature […].
You are then, in Veracruz. The city
that invites to enjoyment, to the unconcern, but where also, it can provide
space to reflection, and to the dialogue, away from the daily duty of the
obligations. For this, I predict the biggest outcome to this annual meeting,
that enable us to make an adding up, and subtraction of what had been
accomplished, and at the same time, where it is pronounced what has to be
done, at the immediate and mediate future.
I begin, by being thankful to the
Clubes Monterrey, Regiomontano, and Sierra Madre, for the work achieved, so
that in May 29, 30, and 31,turn out to be, a success, the Miniconvención
Sembradora,which was possible, especially, thanks to the work of the Damas
Sembradoras, and to the president del Comité Organizador, Ing. Emilio Fautch
Muguira. Likewise, I do the same at this Port, thanking the Club Anfitrión
their president, the Ing. José del Carmen Corro González, to their Members,
and to their Damas Sembradoras, that had been Comité de Recepción, and
energetic collaborators, for the success of the program.
Each one of the Presidentes del Club,
had brought, or sent his written report, to this Convención Annual, in such
a way, that we know, the more emphasized achievements, as regards to the
number of members, platform, reunions, support to the common work, social
work, and presence at the community.
We are not bad, but we can be better.
¿which is our strength? That there is harmony, among all the Regiones and
Clubes, and with the Asociación Internacional. It is not nothing much, when
in many spaces and surroundings, favor the discord and the uneasiness.
Sembradores is one oasis of sound encounter, of strengthen and mature
And, ¿Which is our weakness? That
having a marvelous body of principles, we could not grow in number of
members, and Clubes, as demanded, by the times, and are established by the
proper by-laws. At this point, we expect a lot, out of the Lic. Alejandrina
González de Garza, Directora de Promoción, but also from all and each one of
you, in order to strengthen our present Clubes, and that we also get more
Regular Clubes, more Comités de Damas, and de nueva cuenta, Clubes Juvniles.
The work achieved by the Clubes,
Centenario de Torreón, Corpus Christi, Durango, León, Monterrey, Puebla,
Regiomontano, Saltillo, Sierra Madre and Veracrus, it is highly encouraging,
and must be a reason for proper pride. Because, in spite that we are living
times of change, and insecurity, the Organization had remain.
As for the AICSA, I consider that
there is the firm structure of four vicepresidencias regionales, renewed in
the persons of Ing. Emilio Fautsch (Regiomontano),Ing. José
Corro (Veracruz), Ing. Tomás Palomino (Durango),and Mtro.
Louis Lopez (Corpus Christi). Their Commissary Ing.
Manuel Mijares, had recommend the approval of the Estados Financieros for
the month of September, and this have being submit by the Tesorero Don
Alfredo Sada, through the Tesorero Suplente, Lic. José Ignacio Cárdenas,
aquí presente. There are black numbers, with one ABP, that has to get
together soon in Monterrey, where what is recommended, to the Clubes from
México and the United States, is that they make adequate use of it, which in
turn contribute to the operative expense of the Oficina y Gerencia, reduced
to the minimum expression and spending.
It is continued the Boletín Mensual,
in English and Spanish, the surgical ocular procedures at
the charge of Dr. Clodio González Zambrano had been
renovated, the Corpus Christi Club is working arduously, in order to carry
out this November, their annual dinner-auction, destined to raise funds for
the university scholarships, granted year after year, there are plans for
the foundation of a new Club in Monterrey, the fund for the ABP, is
maintained almost intact, and there are present, the anniversaries in this
2014, in December of the Club Puebla (60 years), and in the 2015 of the
Clubes Durango (55 years), León (55 years), Regiomontano (40 years), and
Corpus Christi (40 years), plus the great anniversary 80 of the Club
Monterrey, in July 2016, that constitute as well, in this great festivity
for the Sembradorismo, which represents pride and obligation.
It is thankful, the punctual
attendance to this Convención Annual, in the case of all the Delegations,
and once more, to the Club Anfitrión: to its Members: to the Presidente and
its Directiva, to the Comité de Damas, and to the Comité Organizador, the
must rendered thanks for their hospitality and courtesy.
Amistad y Civismo
