Metro Carigara Water District celebrates 35th Anniversary
Stirred with the theme, “Celebrating the Past, Building the Future”, Metro Carigara Water District celebrated its 35th anniversary by kicking-off the celebration with the Biggest Water Service Connection Anniversary Promo where qualified applicants can get 35% discount on their New Water Service Connection charges and avail of the affordable payment scheme. This is the biggest promo the water district have ever had.
Similarly, a community service at Camansi Elementary School in Barangay Camansi, Carigara, Leyte was held last August 15, 2018. Around 300 pupils and teachers were present during the Information and Education Campaign in raising awareness on the importance of water sanitation. Film showing of the present water crisis were also showed to reinvigorate younger generations to help in saving the water through their small actions in their community. The community service concluded with a feeding program for all the students.
On the other hand, official celebration of the anniversary was held on August 24, 2018. At 5am, the MCWD Water Warriors, headed by General Manager Atty. Redg Caballes, assembled at Camansi Elementary School for a 5km community walk starting from Barangay Camansi following the route to San Isidro, then Paglaum and finishing at the MCWD Settling Basin Compound in Macalpi. The walk aimed to promote environmental advocacy to protect and save our water resources.
It was followed by a Zumba Dance exercise with ZIN Mary Ann Braca. Dancing to the exciting and driving beat of music, the Water Warriors didn’t feel the workout to be workout at all. The exercise surely gave few laughs and giggles as they build up their endurance.
Present also at the celebration were Chairman of the Board–Roque U. Aguilar Jr., ChE, Vice Chairman-Baltazar C. Esquibel together with Dir. Damiana Makabenta, Dir. Lucila Benusa and Dir. Charita A. Macapus. A short program was held looking back at the projects and developments of the water district in the past 35 years.
Giving recognition to their outstanding dedication and satisfactory service to MCWD, Chairman Aguilar and GM Caballes presented Service Award to Ms. Lea P. Quebec and Ms. Elisa A. Alvarado for their 10 years and 25 years commitment to publice service, respectively.
The celebration ended with a boodle fight strengthening the bond among MCWD employees and consequently promoting camaraderie, unity and solidarity in the hopes to build better and dynamic future.
