The employees of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Region 02 (MGB R02) organized a surprise birthday party in honor of the OIC Regional Director Mario A. Ancheta in celebration of his 49th birthday last May 18, 2015 at MGB Conference hall.
The revelry for RD Ancheta included birthday messages from the representatives of each division, video presentation and mini get together of MGB R02 employees.
Demetrio Corsino, Community Affairs Officer (CAO) thanked RD Ancheta for the support he gave him during the setbacks in his life.
Corsino said he almost gave up, but RD Ancheta told him to stay in MGB.
Further, MGB R02 Budget Officer Remigia Manuel likewise thanked the Regional Director for his good leadership. Manuel added that RD Ancheta should continue his public servant’s leadership.
Engr. Geoffrey Prado also gave a short message to RD Ancheta.
“Buddy, we surpassed the challenges that came along our way. We are able to stop the controversial black sand mining in Cagayan. We are able to do it through your leadership and guidance. Buddy, continue helping those people who are in need,” Prado said.
On the other hand, RD Ancheta gave a response by thanking the MGB R02 employees.
“Thank you for the surprise party, but most of all thank you for always being there through thick or thin; thank you for remembering me,” the birthday celebrant said.
“It’s been seven years since I became the Regional Director, and yet you are still there supporting me despite the hindrances during my first year of leadership,” he added.
“You know how hard we tried to develop our office, you know what our accomplishments are, let our accomplishments speak for what we have done these past few years, thank you for believing in me, thank you for always being there,” he further said.
