On October 7, 2015, the Culmination Program was held at the Bohol Cultural Center. The Elderlies from Tagbilaran City troop to the venue with all smiles and very sexy with their attire as they were told to come on their Sundayâ€™s best.Â They all looked so beautiful and inspired especially when our beloved Mayor arrived and had his lunch with the Senior Citizens.Â After his Message, the Senior Citizens showed their talent in dancing to the tunes of yesteryears. Zumba was also done and you couldnâ€™t believe that this Senior Citizens can still jump and sway to the rhythm of the music.Â Mayor Baba really enjoyed looking at them because he couldnâ€™t believe that at their ages they can still do these kind of dancing.
Indeed it was a day to remember, thank you so much Congressman Relampagos, Governor Chatto and most especially to our beloved and ever supportive Mayor Baba because he couldnâ€™t believe that at their ages they can still do these kind of dancing.
