CA-Mindanao Beats the Odd in its 2nd Anniversary

by: Justice Romulo V. Borja

The second anniversary of CA-Mindanao rolled off grandiosely despite the lack of resources. Celebrated last 7 December 2006, the limited financial support allotted it by CA, which at that time was also financially drained, was more than compensated by personal contributions from seven Justices and its 131 employees. Topping the list of Justices-donors for the event was Justice Ricky R. Rosario who gave a hefty sum.

The second anniversary was celebrated with several colorful events. The 138-strong manpower held a CA Family Lunch dubbed the “Bring-your-own-plate Party”.

A Thanksgiving Mass was held at 1:30 P.M. in the YMCA Boardroom attended by employees and guests. Honorable Oscar Moreno, Governor of Misamis Oriental, who was in attendance, told the members of the Court in public that he was very happy that CA-Mindanao enjoys a high confidence rating from the lawyers and the public.

The program followed the Mass. It was interspersed with musical renditions from the in-house choir and instrumental group. Executive Justice Teresita Dy-Liacco Flores delivered the Welcome Remarks and the State of the Station Address rolled into one. There were two highlights in the program: the speech of Presiding Justice Ruben T. Reyes and the handing out of the “Woodies Awards” or mementos of gratitude to deserving institutions and individuals who have given the Court their unstinted support in the past.
