By Gideon C. Corgue

DAPITAN CITY – Newly elected officers of the Federation of Senior Citizens Association of the Philippines (FSCAP)-Regional 9 Chapter took their oath office Friday before Dapitan Mayor Rosalina G. Jalosjos at the Amphitheater, City Hall Compound in this city.

Sworn into office were Sunnyboy Maghinay – President, Corazon Herico -Vice President, Avelino Sulit – Secretary, Rita Chavez-Treasurer, Moises Lagare,-Auditor, and Serafin Ramos and Margarita Mayormita-Public Information Officers.

The board of directors were Agapito Picardal, Fernando Cariaga, Leo Marzan, Dr. Proceso Benlot, Emercino Fullo, and Florentina Reambonza.

Jalosjos encouraged them to “continue being an integral part of the community and to perform duties and responsibilities faithfully.”

In his message, the lady mayor Jalosjos said “our government needs the collaboration among other sectors in our society particularly the elderly because through our concerted action, we can deal with various issues such as energy, environment, unemployment, health, poverty, and peace and order. The role of senior citizens becomes more important in tackling these issues.”

Jalosjos said her administration vowed to protect and promote the health and well being of senior adults while keeping their dignity. “We want them to be independent by providing them with social support and recreational activities, programs, and support services,” she added.

“We need to be concerned and to formulate measures for the enhancement and enrichment of quality lives for senior citizens,” Jalosjos stressed.

Immediately after the induction ceremony, the FSCAP officers conducted its first regional mobile meeting to plan out their programs and activities for this calendar year.
