Albay Gov. Bichara opens 18th inter-department sportsfest
Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara has spearheaded the opening of Inter-department Sportsfest for Provincial Government employees.
Now on its 18th season, Bichara faced the Capitol employees during the opening yesterday held at the Albay Astrodome.
“The Governor also promised to release the extra cash bonus on the first week of December to the delight of the employees,” the Capitol said.
Bichara also recognized the valuable contribution of each department of the Capitol, particularly the Accounting Department for being awarded as the Best Accounting Department in the country for three consecutive years.
“The sportsfest must unify us toward one goal of serving our dear province and our people,” Bichara was quoted as saying.
This year’s sportsfest features indigenous games (Laro ng Lahi) aside from the regular ball games such as Basketball, Volleyball, Badminton and board games such as Chess and Scrabble.
