PAGADIAN CITY – The Department of Agriculture (DA) Region IX celebrates its 121st Anniversary, with the theme, “Sa agrikulturang makabago, panalo ang Pilipino”.
The celebration started with a motorcade along the city of Pagadian last June 17, 2019. After, the group proceeded to the city gymnasium for the proper program. The agencies under the umbrella of DA have attended and were acknowledged upon arrival. And it was followed by a group Zumba, where everyone felt so energized.
On the other hand, during the opening, Ms. Melba Wee, the Regional Technical Director of DA-RFO IX, gave her opening message and encouraged the employees to also adopt with the new technologies. And one of the highlights of the activity was the Singing Idol where the line agencies have participated. Luckily, Mariel Dingcong, the representative of ATI-RTC IX, earned the 3rd place.
The program will be held from June 17-21, 2019 and the rest of the activities will be held at Zamboanga City. The heads of office, representatives, and employees from different agencies showed all their support for the success of the week-long activity.
