City employees took time out to bond with their counterparts from other government agencies last September 1, through a Fun Walk from the city proper to Payao Beach for a day of games, dances and laughter. All of these were part of the celebration of the 111th Philippine Civil Service Anniversary spearheaded by the Civil Service Commision-Samar.

All of the participants, the city employees included, helped raise a total amount of PhP 16,500, for the  Provincial Jail. This was done through the “Bente Para sa Preso Campaign” where each employee donated 20 pesos for the benefit of the inmates of said jail.

The 111th Philippine Civil Service Anniversary is a nationwide event that is to be observed by all government offices including constitutional bodies, departments, bureaus and agencies of the national government, local government units, government-owned or controlled corporations with original charters and state universities and colleges. This year’s theme, Championing R.A.C.E.: Public Service Excellence at Full Speed, is anchored on the national government’s advocacy for reforms through Responsive, Accessible, Courteous and Effective Public Service.

This message was likewise echoed by CSC Provincial Director Michael Cyril Eamiguel when he addressed all participants composing of employees from various city, provincial and national government agencies upon arrival at the Payao Beach where the actual program and fellowship was to take place. Similar messages were also given by Honorable Stephany Uy-Tan in behalf of City Mayor Coefredo T. Uy and a representative of 8th Infantry Division Commanding General Major General Mario F. Chan.
