Apolinario Mabini Lodge No. 235
For the etymology of the name of this lodge, see the history of Mabini Lodge No. 39. The selection of Apolinario Mabini as the name of the lodge was for the purpose of commemorating the hero who was also called "The Sublime Paralytic" and to immortalize the event of his capture in Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija by the pursuing American soldiers during the Philippine-American war at the
turn of the 20th century.
This lodge is a creation largely of the brethren of General Manuel Tinio Lodge No. 167 at nearby Guimba, Nueva Ecija. Thirty petitioners from this lodge and of the lodges in the neighboring vicinities signed a request for dispensation addressed to the Grand Lodge to form a new lodge in Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija. Grand Master Desiderio Dalisay, Sr. granted the request on February 28, 1979 and at the annual communication of the Grand Lodge held in April 1979, Apolinario Mabini Lodge was granted a charter and assigned number 235.
On October 27, 1979, Junior Grand Warden Rudyardo V. Bunda, with the assistance of RW Hermogenes Oliveros and other Masonic dignitaries opened a Special Communication of the Grand Lodge in Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija and proceeded to constitute the lodge and install the following officers: Bros. Diosdado Barawid and Lucas Andrade as Worshipful Master and Senior Warden, respectively.
