The Provincial Governor’s Office, led by Governor Dorothy P. Montejo-Gonzaga, conducted the event as the government recognized them as active contributors in shaping the society that we have today.
Moreover, the participants had the opportunity for an open conversation as Health Education and Promotion Officer Christian E. Cajes of the Provincial Health Office (PHO) shared inputs on Health and HIV Awareness. They also participated in the Tiktok Dance Competition.
