Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories -

A TO­TAL of 50 em­ploy­ees of the Ba­colod City govern­ment, who have re­tired from the ser­vice this year, were hon­ored by the city govern­ment at a tribute pro­gram Mon­day.

Mayor Eve­lio Leonar­dia thanked the re­tirees for ded­i­cat­ing their lives in the ser­vice of Ba­colod­nons.

“You are part and par­cel of Ba­colod, and Ba­colod would not be where it is to­day if not for your con­tri­bu­tions,” the mayor told the re­tirees at a pro­gram held at the Govern­ment Cen­ter and or­ga­nized by the Hu­man Re­source Man­age­ment Ser­vices Of­fice.

“Our em­ploy­ees are the front-lin­ers in terms of pub­lic ser­vice, and they are an in­te­gral fac­tor in good gov­er­nance, that is why we honor you for mak­ing Ba­colod what it is to­day. Thank you for your ser­vice to Ba­colod,” the mayor added.

The re­tirees re­ceived gifts and plaques.

The old­est re­tiree, Car­los Si­son, 65, from De­part­ment of Pub­lic Ser­vices, had been in the ser­vice for 48 years, while the youngest to re­tire is Jene­lyn Seroma, 43, from Ba­colod City Col­lege, with 20 years of ser­vice. These two re­tirees led the cer­e­mo­nial light­ing of the cake.

“We know how spe­cial and im­por­tant you are, and how much you con­trib­uted to this gov­er­nance and to the city in gen­eral, so we hope that what you see here tonight is some­thing that would make you feel that this is the kind of oc­ca­sion you de­serve,” Leonar­dia said./pr
