CAUAYAN MAYOR’S MESSAGE
Cauayan Mayor John Rey Tabujara called on residents of the town to continue working together for the common good of the community and the people.
He made the appeal as the town started Monday its fiesta with a grand parade and opened its Agro Fair.
It is an honor to greet Cauayanons on the occasion of our fiesta, he said.
He pointed out that fiestas are unique occasions that provide avenues for people to work together to ensure a successful celebration.
“I do hope that the solidarity we have started in preparation for this year’s jubilation will now be sustained as part of our everyday life,” he said.
The agro fair showcases agricultural and aquatic products as well as cottage industry products of various barangays.
The fair is located at the Lubay-lubay Village with exhibits showcased by nine barangay clusters.
The town fiesta will end on Friday, when the Lubay-lubay dance parade and competition will be held.*
