That is LGU-Talibon’s greeting to all Talibongnons, in fact, to all God’s children for this Yuletide Season!!!
Our heartfelt greetings and best wishes for everyone coincides with the simultaneous lighting of all Christmas lights put up at the Municipal Hall and around the Talibon Plaza on the eve of the start of the Misa de Gallo (Dawn Mass) in Talibon.
The medical mission for Sr. Citizens of Talibon, which was waylaid by storm “Queenie”, finally pushed through on December 15, 2014. The chosen venue was the CPG Cultural Center. Out of the 5,000 plus listed senior citizens of Talibon, only Six Hundred Thirty Five (635) persons, to be exact, were the old folks who lined up to avail of medical services, medications and vitamins.
Typhoon Yolanda and the latest storm, storm “Queenie” that inflicted damages in the Municipality of Jagna and neighboring towns, put fears in the hearts of the Boholanos at the impending arrival of storm “Ruby”.
News that the upcoming storm is wider in span than storm “Queenie” and having stronger winds, exaggerated or not, put into action the LGU municipal officials and especially the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council.
The Municipal Revenue Code of the Municipality of Talibon underwent scrutiny, was revised partially and opened up for public hearing last December 5, 2014. The Mayor, Vice-Mayor, SB Members and staff, Department Heads, Barangay Officials, Stakeholders and the general public, were to meet at the CPG Cultural Center to discuss on the proposed revised code’s merits and strengths.
A medical mission targeted for the Senior Citizens of Talibon was postponed due to Storm “Queenie” that hit the Visayan Islands on November 27, 2014 hindering the travel of would-be serving doctors and their staff.
Yet in spite of the storm, the old folks of Talibon trekked slowly towards the Cultural Center, hoping against hope that the medical mission pushes thru. They have their woes. Ailing bodies sought relief. The medical mission gave them hope.
Materials for seaweed production were hauled by truckloads to Talibon from the Bureau of Fishery and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) and finally distributed to eight (8) people’s organizations of the municipality who are engaged in seaweeds production on November 18, 2014 at 1:00 o’clock in the afternoon at the CPG Cultural Center.
The materials were part of the P20M released by BFAR to help seaweed farms to recover from the ill effects of the super typhoon “Yolanda” that struck Bohol last November 8 of 2013. The materials ranged from PE ropes, softie (plastic straw used for tying seedlings), Styrofoam floats and other materials.
The siren rang at exactly 10:00 o’clock in the morning. At this signal, the LGU employees acted out per instruction and went under their tables for safety. Told not to laugh but to take the exercise seriously, others were not able to control themselves but smiled and laughed during the drill.
November 5, 2014 was set as Farmer’s Field Day at San Agustin, Talibon, Bohol where the farmers gathered to check on the rice field chosen for the application of the Expanded Modified Rapid Composting (EMRC) Technology; a national program implemented and launched here in Talibon, last June 18 of this year.
“Carlos Polestico Garcia Day” or CPG Day was celebrated in the Municipality of Talibon on November 4, 2014 to commemorate the 118th birth anniversary of late Pres. Carlos P. Garcia. Pres. Garcia is an illustrious son of Talibon and hailed from Barangay San Agustin and so it is in this area, specifically at his monument, that the different activities in his honor were held.
Talibongnons are mostly Roman Catholics and so commemoration of All Soul’s Day in Talibon on November 2 is both a lively and poignant affair. Majority thronged to the cemetery as early as November 1, which is “All Saints Day” in the calendar of the Roman Catholic Church. Others go there even earlier, to repair and decorate their loved ones’ tombs.
Based on the Sunday Mass schedule, Holy Masses were said at the Cathedral and at the small cemetery chapel. Mass offerings were collected and the lists of souls prayed for were put inside a big box and placed in front of the altars. The boxes are then blessed after every Mass.
LGU-Talibon, in partnership with Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), distributed a total of 19 pushcarts and tri-sikads to identified disadvantaged groups from the island barangays of Suba, Busalian and Mahanay on October 29, 2014 at Talibon’s CPG Cultural Center at 10:00 o’clock in the morning.
