Women’s Month 2017

March is Women’s Month and so the women folks of Talibon, who are often taken for granted, made use of this period to show forth their skills and talents and made their presence felt in the municipality.  Activities included a fun run, zumba session, rummage sale, barangay anti-drug campaign, and culminated with a parade and program on March 23.  On March 29, they joined the Provincial culminating activities at Tagbilaran City.

With a slight drizzle and because of time constraints (the run scheduled from 4 to 5 in the morning) plus the distance, not all barangays were able to join the fun run but followed suit and just joined the “Zumba Babae” which was scheduled at 6 up to 7 in the morning.

Not all activities lined up were documented, yet on the 23rd , during the culmination program, all activities were fully covered.  The day started with a parade and was enlivened by the music created by the San Jose National High School Band.

A Eucharistic Celebration then followed at the Holy Trinity Cathedral with Fr. Enrico Cortes officiating. The priest even gave them a special blessing after the Holy Mass and had pictures taken with the group.

After an hour, the women slowly gathered at the Cultural Center….slowly growing in numbers.  While waiting for the other women from different barangays to occupy their tables, the SJNHS Band showed off their skills.

The program proper started with Girls from the Central School SPED Class performing the Invocation Dance while guided by their teacher.  Staff and residents of the Village of Hope then led the congregation in the singing of the Pambansang Awit and Awit sa Bohol. 

Guest speakers take turns in the rostrum starting with Councilor Janet A. Garcia (SB Committee of Education), ABC Byrnah Paculaba (President: Talibon Council of Women), Councilor Junette E. Loma (SB Committee on Women and Social Services), Judge Marivic T. Daray (Keynote Address: Executive Presiding Judge RTC-52), Ms. Antonette V. Alcazar (in lieu of Ma. Teresita I. Alampayan; Acting Public School District Supervisor), Atty. Luz Z. Virtudazo (Keynote Address: Public Attorney II), and last but not the least, a message from Mayor Restituto B. Auxtero.

Two groups vied in the folk dance contest:  DepEd and LGU.  Nine groups were expected to present yet failed to show up so the three vied for the price.  The blue-clad dancers of LGU won by a slight margin.  Judges were: Ms. Rachel Sayson (LGU), Ms. Marivic Toñacao (DepEd), and Ms. Esther Espinosa of Phildra.  Another group presented a modern dance yet it was not part of the contest.

Before Ma’am Zosima Gabisan imparted “Words of Wisdom” in parting, a group of women from the Barangays rendered a dance number.  The entire program was ably emceed by teachers: Ritchelle T. Tan and Zarah Jane C. Avenido.
