Fernandinas Celebrate International Women's Day [ Friday, 9th of March 2018 | 2 weeks ago ]
The activity is a combination of a motorcade and parade which was divided into two starting points—one in the northernmost barangay and the other in the southernmost then going to the City Hall.
In a short program, Mayor Edwin "EdSa" Santiago stressed that through a simple celebration, the local government seeks to recognize the role and contributions of every Fernandina towards the city's progress.
He furthered that respecting women is not just a responsibility but a moral value that must be observed by everyone.
"Kapag pinag-uusapan ang kababaihan lagi kong naaalala ang aking ina na labis ang pagsisikap para sa aming pamilya. Kung walang babae, hindi mabubuo ang isang pamilya kaya marapat lang na kayo ay bigyan ng pagkilala at pagpapahalaga sa ating komunidad," Santiago added.
Meanwhile, free pampering services such as haircut, manicure, pedicure and massage were also offered as a tribute to the hardworking Fernandinas.
The City Health Office, in partnership with the SM Foundation also conducted a dental and medical mission which was opened to public.
CHO has also tied up with the Provincial Health Office and Jose B. Lingad Memorial Regional Hospital for a bloodletting activity held at the City Hall.
Also present during the celebration were Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin, Councilor Angie Hizon who chairs the Committee on Women, Children and Family Affairs, Local Council of Women Chairperson Dr. Leticia Yap, GAD Focal Person Amalia Catacutan and the members of the Women's Month 2018 Executive Committee.
