Celebrating Generosity and Technology
The Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Misamis Occidental has reached another milestone when it launched its official website http://sp.misocc.gov.ph last October 2, 2014 at the Session Hall of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, Capitol Oroquieta City. The event was celebrated together with an equally important affair, the Recognition Ceremony of Mr. Narciso Lim and family of Elim Agricultural Supply. With the theme “Celebrating Generosity & Technology”, the occasion was graced with distinguished guests such as the Provincial Governor, Vice Governor, Board Members, Heads of Office, Employees of the Office of the Secretary to the Sanggunian, Mr. Eliezer Lim (Mr. Narciso Lim’s son who represented him) together with his daughter Ms. Chairien Lim and members of the media.
The Program started with a prayer led by Board Member Emeterio B. Roa, Sr. followed by the singing of the National Anthem. Provincial Vice Governor, Hon. Aurora Virginia M. Almonte then gave her opening remarks, expressing her joy and pride as the occasion provided an avenue to: acknowledge the contribution of Mr. Narciso Lim to the Province of Misamis Occidental and launch the official website of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan. A video was presented right after, showing a dialogue between the Tingog Misamisnon Channel (TMC) correspondent and Mr. Rocky Roa, Administrator of the Mayor Hilarion A. Ramiro Sr. Regional Training and Teaching Hospital (MHARSRTTH), detailing Mr. Narciso Lim’s additional 562 sq. meters lot donation to the MHARSRTTH for its expansion. This was followed by a Message of Thanks delivered by the Provincial Governor, Hon. Herminia M. Ramiro. The Governor placed great emphasis on how the occasion holds a special place in her heart and how truly grateful she is to Mr. Narciso Lim and family for their generosity. The family’s first lot donation paved the way for the establishment of a public hospital named after her husband, the Mayor Hilarion A. Ramiro Sr. Regional Training and Teaching Hospital (MHARSRTTH). The said hospital serves the people of Misamis Occidental as well as its neighboring Provinces. The Handover of Resolution No. 154-14, authored by Board Member Emeterio B. Roa, Sr. finally ensued. The Provincial Governor, Vice Governor and all the Board Members presented it to Mr. Eliezer Lim & Ms. Chairien Lim, representatives of Mr. Narciso Lim.
Immediately thereafter, an audio-visual presentation was shown, displaying a preview of the official website of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Misamis Occidental. After which the ceremonial launch was done by the Provincial Vice Governor Hon. Aurora Virginia M. Almonte, aided by Marc Joseph Mahinay, Computer Programmer. To cap off the Program, Secretary to the Sanggunian Atty. Irene T. Zapatos acknowledged everyone involved in the conceptualization, creation and completion of the website.
Truly, it was an affair to remember. The Sangguniang Panlalawigan has carved one of its accomplishments in stone, making History as it goes online. It has also managed to send a strong message to inspire people to laud generosity, exemplified by the Recognition given to the Lim’s.
