Bulacan Gov Sy-Alvarado calls centenarians in province as ‘light’ that guides youth
Bulacan Governor Wilhelmino Sy-Alvarado paid tribute early this week to the province’s elderlies, calling them “the light that guide the path of the youth.”
At the “Pagkilala at Pagpapahalaga sa mga Sentenaryong Bulakenyo at Pagdiriwang ng Linggo ng Katandaang Pilipino” held in Malolos City last Monday, Sy-Alvarado and Vice Governor Daniel Fernando joined local officials, including Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office Head Rowena Tiongson in giving cash incentives and plaques of recognition and appreciation to 90 centenarians of the province.
According to a statement from the provincial government, Sy-Alvardo believes that “if the youth is the hope of our nation, the elderlies are the light that guide the path of the youth.”
“Hangad namin na patuloy pa kayong biyayaan ng higit pang kalakasan at mabuting kalusugan upang patuloy ninyong masaksihan at tamasahin ang mga pagpapalang hatid ng isang matiwasay, mapayapa at maunlad na Lalawigan ng Bulacan,” the politiko said.
The provincial government gave P10,000 each to the 60 previously recognized and 30 newly-registered centenarians.
The new batch of 30 also got a plaque of recognition and appreciation, and will be provided each with P100,000 incentive from the Department of Social Welfare and Development.(END)
