>Jagna’s National Children’s Month Celebration


This coastal town has joined the entire country in the celebration of National Children’s Month.
Day care center workers, children, parents and Local Government Unit (LGU) officials converged at the Jagna gymnasium to mark the month long celebration that capped on October 22.
The event which bore the theme “Bright Child: Sa Tamang Pag-aaruga, Kinabukasan ay Maginhawa” started with a Holy Mass at the St. Michael the Archangel Parish Church followed by the coronation of the Jagna Day Care King and Queen.
During the program, Mayor Exuperio Lloren commended the noble efforts of Jagna’s 33 day care workers. He urged the parents of the day care children to grasp fully the theme of the celebration.
“In my opinion, if a child is well taken cared of by both parents even during conception and much more after birth, the child will grow bright. In many cases, a child becomes what he or she is because of the parents”, Mayor Lloren opined.  
Day care children of Poblacion and Naatang Day Care Centers Jasius Dwight Virtudes and Elcitte May Bolaer respectively were declared Day Care King and Queen 2008 through a popularity contest.
Mayor Lloren and Jagna DILG Officer Ma. Reina Quilas crowned King Jasius Dwight while Vice Mayor Teofisto Pagar, Sr. assisted by DSWD officer-in-charge Marcionila Reyes crowned Queen Elcitte May.
As the children were very young to understand speeches, they just rendered some dance numbers to the delight of the crowd mostly children themselves.
A grand parade in the afternoon capped the day’s activities. (With reports from Gregorio A. Tavera)
