In observance of the 115th Anniversary of the Martyrdom of Dr. Jose P. Rizal, PMO Puerto Princesa, represented by nine PMO personnel joined with other government agencies, led by the City Government of Puerto Princesa in celebrating the event held at the Rizal Park in Puerto Princesa on December 30, 2011.
The program started with the blowing of siren, followed by invocation, raising of the Philippine National Flag and singing of the Philippine National Anthem.
The highlights of the activity were floral/wreath offering at the foot of the monument of Dr. Rizal and the awarding by the Knights of Rizal of a plaque of recognition to a local hero in the person of Dr. Jesus dela Torre, a retired elementary teacher who saved his co-teachers and pupils of Iraray Elementary School in Espanola, Palawan from two persons who ran amok in that school where he was teaching way back in the sixties. Left for dead, Dr. dela Torre survived the ordeal but lost one leg and endured stab wounds to different body parts of his body.
The PMO contingent that attended the event realized that Dr. dela Torre serves as a good example and a reminder that anyone can become a hero just like Dr. Jose Rizal by responding to situations which will result to the benefit and welfare of others. (PMO Puerto Princesa)
The Port Management Office of Puerto Princesa held its annual “Gift Giving Program” at TMO El Nido last December 2011.
The program was attended by the PPA port partners and 293 recipients coming from the poorest of the poor in different barangays of the Municipality. A short message was given by Port Manager Luis A. Cuison, saying that “the true spirit of Christmas is love, giving and forgiving. And this should not be during the holidays only but be made a way of life”. He also reiterated the value of selflessness through the life and examples of Dr. Jose Rizal.
The gift giving activity was a brainchild of TMO head Froilan M. Factor, who also chaired the committee in the planning, preparation, mobilization and implementation. TMO personnel even went to the barangays to distribute the claim stubs to the residents chosen to be the recipients prior to the program.
The grocery items, games, snacks and message showed the port community that Philippine Ports Authority sees and caters to the need of the people in the community as a new dimension of public governance.
The activity was made possible through the joint effort of all partners of the Authority in the municipality composed of Bacuit Stevedoring Arrastre Inc., Polaris Stevedoring Services, Office of Sangguniang Bayan of El Nido, TMSI Taytay Multipurpose Services, Inc., and Lockheed Security Agency.
