Cotabato City Government Celebrates Thanksgiving and Family Day

IMG_3051The People's Palace was oozing with the festive mood as the city government family celebrates Thanksgiving and Family Day, Friday (Dec. 09). Various activities were prepared for the city officials and employees to enjoy.

During the opening program, Cotabato City Mayor Japal J. Guiani, Jr. was welcomed with a warm applause when he announced that the city has once again become a First Class City from being a Third Class City in the previous years.

"I am hoping now that Cotabato City is already a First Class City, the employees will receive more benefits in the years to come. I am encouraging everybody to always do well as those who persevere will receive their reward", the Mayor added.

The Mayor also gave plaques of recognition to the city's street sweepers for their efforts in making the city streets clean 24/7.

After the short opening program, the other activities began. First was the Retro Fashion Show. Officials and employees wore wardrobes that were inspired by the 40's up to the 80's. Group and individual winners received cash prizes.

The "City Government Got Talent" contest also held its grand finals during the activity. Cash prizes and trophies were also given to the winners.

Parlor games and raffle draws were also prepared for the employees to enjoy.

"We hold this kind of activity every year para naman po maramdaman n gating mga empleyado na isa kaming pamilya. I also believe that all work and no play make John a dull boy. Kailangan magkaroon din ng time to relax ang enjoy para mas ganado tayong lahat sa pagbibigay serbisyo", Mayor Guiani states.

Moreover, the city employees are to receive their year-end bonus on the second week of December.
