Provincial Information Office kicks off photography contest

   It’s going to be a very busy month as government workers in Laguna’s capital observe the anniversary of Philippine Civil Service. The Provincial Government of Laguna under the leadership of Governor Ramil L. Hernandez rolled out a trade fair and opened registration for the photography contest on Monday, September 3, to kick off activities marking civil service month.

   The public is welcome to take part in the week-long trade fair that showcases Laguna products such as footwear, kinulob at adobong itik, salted eggs, pastries and sweets, turmeric (luyang dilaw), cassava products, native handicrafts, fruits and vegetables, and many more. Venue for the trade expo is the open area fronting the Cultural Center.

   Workers serving in the provincial government can join a photo contest by registering their name at the Provincial Information Office until September 26, 2018. Winners will be announced and awarded at the provincial capitol grounds on September 27.

   The Provincial Human Resource Management Office (PHRMO) will be conducting for newly hired employees an orientation on government work ethics and personnel mechanism on September 5. The same office will carry out an orientation on PAG-IBIG fund and GSIS retirement benefits on September 19 at the Cultural Center in Sta. Cruz. The seminar is intended to educate workers on GSIS and PAG-IBIG matters, highlight the importance of financial literacy, and share insights on planning after retirement.

   On September 10, Monday, all workers will take part in a parade around the capitol to kick-start a sports competition. All games in basketball, volleyball, badminton, and practical shooting will be held at the Sports Complex in Bubukal, Sta. Cruz.

   The Moral Development Office hosts a spiritual development seminar at the Cultural Center on September 11.  

   A jobs fair is scheduled on September 12 at the Cultural Center. Workers get to feel to be young again as they indulge in Pinoy games like luksong baka, patintero, kadang-kadang, palosebo, and tiyakad, to name a few. The games will be held September 12 at the back of Time Plaza in the capitol complex.

    Food lovers and cooking enthusiasts get a chance to display their culinary prowess on September 13 when a cooking contest is held at the Cultural Center.

   Workers get their chance to get free haircut and massage during the employee wellness and beauty care program on September 14. A blood donation drive and distribution of seedlings and organic fertilizer will simultaneously be held on this day. The Cultural Center will be the venue for all of these activities.

   September 6 and 20 are reserved for pets’ care activities. Get your furry friends vaccinated with anti-rabies and have them undergo deworming, vitamin-mineral injection and other special treats in front of San Luis building (Bahay Kubo).

   Workers get to learn more about protecting the environment during the tree growing and caring exercise at East Talaongan, Cavinti on September 21. 

   An orientation about the Solo Parent Act happens on September 25.

   Winners for the amateur and professional photo contest will be known and recognized during the awarding ceremony at the New Capitol Lobby on September 27.

   Workers get to be performers for a day when they strut their stuff with the lip sync and dance competition. The lip sync and dance showdown will serve as culminating activity before the awarding and closing ceremonies are held at the Cultural Center on September 28.

   The civil service festivities seek to commemorate the birth of the Philippine civil service system in 1900, as well as to celebrate the contributions and hard work of all state workers in the country. The Civil Service Commission wrote on its website that this year’s theme, “Lingkod Bayani: Maka-Diyos, Makatao, Makabayan”, aims to remind civil servants of their role in exemplifying love of God and country, building a citizen-centric government, and promoting malasakit in public service for their number one client—the Filipino people.
