ROSALES- Senior citizens and village heads of 4th, 5th and 6th Districts of Pangasinan trooped to Robert B. Estrella Sr. Stadium here last September 18 to attend the Senior Citizens’ Festival, an activity sponsored by the Department of Education- Pangasinan Division II .

The event recognized the roles of the senior citizens in community building as conveyed by Dr. Donato Balderas, Pangasinan Division II schools superintendent who was the guest of honor and speaker.

“We praised our senior citizens for their contributions in our communities. In spite of being in their twilight years, they are still active in community activities. We could draw inspirations from their wisdom and experiences,” Balderas said.

He also urged them to help the implementation of K to 12 next year.

Former 5th District Rep. Mark Cojuangco conveyed his gubernatorial bid of the province in 2016 elections along with his running mate, vice gubernatorial aspirant Mark Roy Macanlalay.

” The senior citizens deserve attention and care. If I will be lucky to lead our province, we will give special attention to you like providing you senior citizens’ buildings where you could converge and socialize, and will provide you with better medical services,” Cojuangco said.

Calasiao Mayor Mark Macanlalay re-echoed the statements of Cojuangco and promised to support his programs needing legislative actions in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, should he win as vice governor.

Macanlalay entertained the crowd with his song ” One in a million you”.

The senior citizens participated in various contests like ballroom dancing, poster making, slogan making and cook fest.

Abono Partylist Chairman Rosendo O. So donated all the prizes for the contests.

” Let’s give support to Cojuangco and Macanlalay in 2016 elections. I know that they will be the next leaders who could provide development of Pangasinan,” So said.

Also in attendance are former Abono Partylist Rep. Robert Raymund “Eskimo” Estrella Jr., Education Supervisor Cornelio Aquino, chief of curriculum implementation division and Abono Partylist President Leny Flores
