“May we build a better and more progressive municipality or city, and not merely for the sake of leaving a legacy. But I do hope that we would work harder to improve our community for both the present and upcoming generation”, she said.
 
Inspired and fully equipped, the TCYDC group, headed by SK Federation President Hon. Cristina F. Duadua, promised their full commitment to the program. (FAR-LGUInfo)
