On behalf of the Secretary, the inspirational message was delivered by the Chief Administrative Officer, Retired Colonel Vicente Gregorio B. Tomas. He emphasized the significance of the services given by the retirees and awardees which surely served as an inspiration to other employees of the Department. He said, “This is a rare moment that we are all gathered to celebrate and give gratitude to all our colleagues whose services change and transform many lives.  It is a moment to look back how Teamwork, Camaraderie and Friendship bring success to our work“.  

Intermission numbers were showcased by Mr. Ariel Gopela, Administrative Assistant III of Unconditional Cash Transfer; Ms. Arianne Chua, an award-winning child performer from RSCC and the GRACES dancers.

She expressed gratitude and happiness to the Department as her professional journey touched her and her family’s lives.    

Marami akong mga pinagdaanan bago ako napunta sa EGV ngunit masaya ako sa lahat ng aking pinagdaanan at nagpapaslamat sa lahat ng tumulong at sa pomunuan ng DSWD na nagtiwala at patuloy na nagtitiwala sa aking serbisyo”. Ballon stated.

On the other hand, Mr. Ernesto Adriano Sr., Project Development Officer II of the Sustainable Livelihood Program shared his stories and the challenges he experienced throughout his 38 years.  

The program ended with the closing remarks delivered by Ms. Maridol Licerio, 68th Anniversary Chairperson and Social Welfare Officer V of GRACES. She expressed her gratitude to the members of the committees as well as to all the staff who made the event and activity successful. “Maraming salamat sa lahat ng tumulong upang mapaayos ang event na ito at sa lahat ng ating retirees at awardees, magsisislbi kayong inspirasyon sa aming lahat sa inyong mga karansasan na inyong ibinahagi”. Licerio said.
