The City Council will not hold its regular session today to prepare for the Eid’l Fitr celebration ending the holy month of Ramadan. The national government has declared October 1 as a non-working holiday to join Filipino Muslims in marking the end of fasting.
We greet our Muslim brothers and sisters a happy Hari Raya!
On Thursday when work resumes, it would signal a busy week with the Consumer Week celebration with the consumer fair, seminars and other activities at G Mall. My office partly funded (P100,000) the activities spearheaded by the Department of Trade and Industry. This year’s theme is “on the healthy and safe side of living.”
I am also holding a 2-day seminar-workshop for our Barangay Business Enterprise Development Program on Thursday and Friday at the City Council.
On Saturday, the Davao City Bowling Association will kick off its high school bowling tournament at Dover Lanes. Big thanks to Petronas for sponsoring the event.
Next week, the Dancesports Team Davao will hold the following activities:
October 6 – 4 p.m. 2008 Davao Open Latin Competition; 8 p.m. Champions & Stars Dancesport Showcase (Recreo Ballroom Center)
October 7-8 – 10 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Dancesport Congress and Workshop (G Mall)
Dancesport is the latest addition to the roster of the Davao City Sports Council, Inc. which I chair. Its representative is Jeannette S. Ortiz.
