Kapampangan Festivals Highlighted In CSF’s Halo-Halloween [ Wednesday, 7th of November 2018 | 3 months ago ]
Creativity and uniqueness were proudly displayed in the City Hall of San Fernando as the participating offices and personnel artistically decorated their respective workplace and dressed up inspired by Kapampangan Festivals during this year’s Cultural Enhancement Program or Halo-Halloween Year 6 on October 31, 2018.
City Human Resource Management Officer Rachelle Yusi said, instead of horror themes, they came up in to Kapampangan Festivals concept such as Ibun-Ebun, Sabuaga, and Sinukwan Festival to promote the rich culture and tradition of the province.
“We want to promote the Filipino values and culture as well. And this is also the time na makasama ng mga employees ang kanilang pamilya,” Yusi said.
Yusi furthered that every year, the CHRM Office conducts an ‘Inter-Office Decorating’ and ‘Individual Costume’ contest per category to showcase the creativity and resourcefulness of the CSF’s Local Government employees.
Wearing also in their festival costumes were the children of the city’s LGU employees who also joined the Costume Contest and roamed around the city hall for the traditional ‘trick or treat’.
During his speech, Mayor Edwin ‘EdSa’ Santiago stressed that the local government will always provide programs and activities for the employees to promote camaraderie in the workplace.
“Naniniwala tayo na isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit umuunlad ang Syudad San Fernando ay dahil sa mga masisipag at dedikadong manggagawa nito. Kaya naman mahalaga din na kayo muna ay magsama-sama at magsaya upang mas lalo pa kayong ma-inspired at ma-motivate na maglingkod sa ating mga kababayan,” Santiago said.
