Jagna Bohol Katas Ng E-vat

      A pre-fiesta gift from the Katas ng E-VAT for Lolo and Lola arrived on time on September 9 before the townspeople will celebrate the feast of St. Michael the Archangel on the 29th.

      The much-awaited cash gifts that drew a sort of skepticism on the part of the doubting senior citizens turned out into a big affair of a bundle of joy when 70-year-old up folks and non-pension members of the Federated Senior Citizens' Association of the Philippines (FSCAP) in Jagna converged at the municipal gymnasium to receive P500 each.

      Mayor Exuperio Lloren, together with Social Welfare Officer-in-charge Marcionila Reyes and Acting Municipal Treasurer Raymond Cuadra, worked hard that the amount be released soon and that it would be enough for all entitled FSCAP members.

      The first batch, comprising beneficiaries from the 14 barangays of Jagna, trooped to the gymnasium for the whole day activity.

      The second batch came from the eastern coastal barangays who gathered at the Tubod Mar chapel in the morning. In the afternoon, the four western seaside barangays assigned assembled at the Can-uba chapel for the purpose.

      There were also recipients from upland barangays of barangays Calabacita, Mayana, Balili, Laca and Cabungaan.

      Office of the Senior Citizens' Affairs Chairman Victorino Nayga, FSCAP Municipal president Gregorio Tavera and staff from the DSWD and Treasurer's Office facilitated the whole event.
