'Goodies' give added meaning to Freedom Day rites

Roxas City (12 June) -- This year's Philippine Independence Day celebration June 12 here has acquired added meaning for beneficiaries of government projects.

One set of beneficiaries comprised trainees of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) under the President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo Scholarship Program. They received financial assistance for TESDA livelihood trainings.

Another group of beneficiaries was given land patents and titles plus tree seedlings and malunggay seeds by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

Six municipalities including Ivisan, Mambusao, Pontevedra, Maayon, Pres. Roxas, and Pilar each received a check for a P200,000.00 fund assistance from the government through the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) under the Comprehensive Livelihood and Emergency Employment Program (CLEEP).

Ivisan Mayor Felipe Neri Yap welcomed the assistance from the national government and said it would serve well for project beneficiaries among his constituents.

The "goodies" were handed in to the recipients by their respective proponent agencies during a program that capped the commemoration of the 111th Independence Day here.

The other highlights of the celebration were a civic parade through the major streets of the city, raising of the national flag at the Provincial Capitol and City Hall.

The messages of Gov. Victor Tanco and City Mayor Vicente Bermejo were delivered by Sangguniang Panlalawigan Member Esteban Evan Contreras and city councilor Dennis Altobano. (PIA-JSC) [top]
