The City Agricultural Services Office headed by City Agriculturist Leoncia Nebres led the celebration of National Rice Awareness Month (NRAM) 2018.

NRAM was celebrated on November 19 during the regular Monday flag raising ceremony of the LGU in adherence to a DILG memo circular.

The event’s purpose is to recognize the importance of rice and to promote alternative foods that can be substituted for rice.

A short rationale was given by Engr. Edlyn Grace Tono followed by the recitation of Panatang Makapalay by the LGU employees, Tacurong PNP, BFP, JTF Talakudong and other guests of the Monday ceremony.

After the program, steamed camote ang banana (saba) were offered to the employees. (IvanArzagon, LGUTac-DAOffice)
