People all over the world celebrates Christmas annually to honor the birth of Jesus Christ. Often, this occasion is accompanied by thanksgiving. Thanksgiving for the birth of Christ who serves and symbolizes the indescribable gift that God gave to mankind. Therefore, the management decided to have a Christmas Fellowship/Party for all employees together with the Board of Trustees.
Christmas party is also one of the perfect ways to thank the entire workforce by recognizing and celebrating the hardwork they made throughout the year. The Christmas Fellowship was held overnight on December 16, 2021 at Villa Rufina Resort, Calamba, Laguna. The staffs decorated the venue and the Admin prepared a program for the whole night celebration.
To formally start the program, Janette Corollo led the invocation followed by an opening remarks from the Executive Director, Ma’am Linda Perez. The Board of Trustees, Ma’am Marlyn Fernando and Atty. Taya Guinto also shared their words to the group. There were also parlor games and prizes available for everyone.
The party also served as awards night for employees who have served the OHF for 20 years. The awardees were Davilyn Fajardo, Jesusa Bedia and Marivic Lucion. There was also an awarding for the Biggest Loser/Gainer where the declared winner was Janette Corollo with an average loosed weight of 7.23 %; Ma’am Linda sponsored P5,000 as award.
The latter part of the program was the most beloved part of the Christmas celebration which is the exchange gift and giving gifts. This is the only time of year for many people when we get to show each and every person in our lives how important they are to us. Giving gifts if just another way of spreading the love and joy of Christmas.
The last part of the program was a dinner together filled with stories of happy and funny times. So everyone happily shared the lechon and other meals prepared by Hanna and other staff such as seafood’s, vegetables, fruits and more. Happy Holidays to All!
To God be all the glory!
