The lateThe late President Jun Judan had a stroke at the start of his term which prevented him from discharging his duties. The president-elect was also unable to assume the presidency since he had to travel abroad for an urgent family matter. The Club Secretary, Rotarian Vic Arrogante had to take over the unfamiliar 90 job on a short notice. By midterm, the club decided to again elect Ernie Pangalangan as President to serve out the remaining months. It was a crisis right from the start, but the club rose above the crisis and rendered service where it mattered. In spite of these trials, the club was able to donate two brand-new artesian wells and rehabilitate another one in Mandaluyong City.

The traditional gift-giving to the poor, and the year-long free eye clinic at the Jose Reyes Memorial Hospital was continued. Help was extended to the flood victims of Marikina and to the government soldiers during the coup attempt of December 1989.
