About Us


Chartered: October 19, 1975


SI San Jose City was founded on October 19, 1975. Induction and installation rites were conducted by then-District Director Purificacion Santos and Flotilde F. Castelo, Charter President of Cabanatuan City. Both are Novo Ecijanos like Founder President Mariquita Castelo. At that time, Diwata Aldaba Baluyut served as National President (1974-1976), the equivalent of today’s Governor. In 1983, the new title SIPR Governor was introduced with Milagros Villasor as Charter Governor.


From its founding, SI San Jose City was placed under the Nueva Ecija District. During that period, three SI San Jose City Past Presidents served as District Directors of Nueva Ecija, namely: Remedios F. Ignacio (1990-1992); Eva F. Violago (1994-1996); and Zenaida Vizmonte Agustin (2000-2002).


In October 2000, SI San Jose City celebrated its 25th(Silver) Anniversary with National President Diwata A. Baluyut as Guest of Honor and Speaker. Then, in October 2005, the Club celebrated its 30th(Pearl) Anniversary, with then-Governor Dulce I. Gozon as the Special Guest of Honor and Speaker.

In March 2008, SI President Yolanda S. Ignacio sponsored the chartering of SI Science City of Munoz under Governor Linabelle Ruth Villarica. In October 2015, the Club celebrated its 40th(Ruby) Anniversary. Under its sponsorship, a new Club, SI Rizal Nueva Ecija was chartered and its new officers and members installed with Gloria A. Ferrer as Charter President under the term of Governor Myra Paz Abubakar.


Without any sign of slowing down, and with more quality members joining the fold, hopefully, within a few years time, SI San Jose City will commemorate its Diamond Anniversary with some of the original charter members present, still vibrant and enthusiastic.
