Finally after years of being transferred from place to place, senior citizens of the town of Jagna have a place they can call their own. The newly-completed Office of Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA) was blessed on April 8 and formally opened. Started in the
second semester of 2012 after the LGU appropriated funds for its construction, the OSCA was continuously worked on by the Municipal Engineering Office (MEO) force. Thru the diligent follow up of the OSCA Federated President Engr. Cruza Bagatsolon they now have a spacious place to transact their concerns, socialize with one another and exchange a lifetime of experiences that have made them wise.
Mayor Fortunato R.Abrenilla prodded the MEO for the immediate completion of the project so that the senior citizens will be comfortable in their own office. He said that the office will afford the SCs a venue for updating each other and for reinforcing friendships that were kept at bay when everyone was busily tending to their everyday living. “Now is the time to sit back, relax and reminisce the times past, be active to continuously feel young and free from worries”, Mayor Abrenilla said in his message. He encouraged the senior citizens present during the blessing and inauguration to not only come to the office to transact business but stay there and engage each other in stress=free conversations.
On her part, Engr. Cruza Bagatsolon thanked the mayor for heeding their call and providing them with their need of an office after so many years of lobbying. She said that the senior citizens office is a requirement based on the law but it still depends upon the support of the administration if their clamor will be answered. She said that on behalf of the senior citizens she is thankful for the completion of the office of their own.
