The Federation of Senior Citizens Associations of the Philippines – Tagbilaran City Chapter gathered all its members at the Bohol Cultural Center today to commemorate the National Elderly Filipino Week Celebration with songs, dances, brotherhood and great camaraderie.
Gov. Edgar M. Chatto lauded the elderly for their strong values and for being good examples to the youth today. He affirmed that the elderly should be given more privileges for all the sacrifices they have have undergone for the sake of their families. His prayer, he said, is that they be given more fruitful years to live their lives fully and that they remain healthy, strong and serve as inspirations for younger generations. He urged them to count their blessings, not their years left on earth; and he promised that both the provincial and city governments would cooperate with each other so that more programs will be given to the senior citizens of Bohol.
