Bearing the theme “Great to Share and Celebrate”, the Philippine Carabao Center (PCC) has set the stage for the month-long celebration of its silver anniversary starting March 1, with its three-day grand affair on March 25-27.
Each section and division of PCC’s national headquarters and genepool, including its regional centers, will host weekly activities in support of the hashtags – #GreatToShare, #GreatToInnovate, #GreatToInspire, and, of course, #GreatToCelebrate.
These hashtags summarize what this agency has been constantly imparting to its clients, partners, collaborators, stakeholders and employees. They were inspired by its ultimate goal of improving the breed of the carabaos in the country and shower the rural families with benefits derived from it.
The launching of the “Philippine Dairy Carabao” breed will be bannered by the introduction of the PCC mascots Kalaboy and Kalagirl. The giving of recognition to outstanding PCC employees as well as appreciation to all those who have played big roles in its journey all through the years will be also held.
Special sharing sessions and cultural Filipino games for its employees will also highlight the celebration.
More than 500 guests will join the PCC officials and employees during the anniversary program that will also include an evening event for PCC employees. The PCC has invited important personalities, including retired PCC employees, the living pillars, as well as its partners from various agencies.
The grandfather of PCC, former president of the Philippines, and now, City Mayor of Manila, Joseph Ejercito Estrada, will serve as the guest of honor during the anniversary program. Senate Committee Chair on Agriculture Sen. Cynthia Villar is also expected to grace the event.
