City Mayor James “Bong” Gordon Jr. has again designated Olongapo First Lady and Zambales Vice Gov. Anne Marie Gordon as Chairman of the Fiesta Executive Committee (Execom).

In a letter, Mayor Bong Gordon acknowledged the success of 2006 City Fiesta under the chairmanship of Vice Gov. Anne Marie Gordon. ‘’Dahil sa maganda at maayos na pagpapalakad ni Vice Gov. Gordon, naniniwala ako na kayang-kaya niyang ipag-patuloy ang kanyang nasimulang pagpapa-sigla sa City Fiesta.’’

Likewise, Mayor Gordon also assigned business woman Iluminada Santos as C0-chairman. She was the treasurer of the 2006 City Fiesta execom.

The newly appointed Execom will organize the other committees needed in planning the different events and activities, not only during the actual fiesta but all year round.

The 2006 City Fiesta through the leadership of Vice Gov. Gordon was able to give one million pesos to the livelihood project and training programs of the Livelihood Cooperative and Development Office (LCDO).

The Philhealth Indigency Program also received P1 million for the hospitalization and medical assistance of the city’s poor residents.

The 2006 Execom also funded the Olongapo Center for Youth with P1M and Php 30,000 for the Olongapo City Government Choir.

As part of the colorful tradition of the city, one of the highlights of the annual City Fiesta is the search for the City Fiesta Queen which aims to raise funds for the different programs of the city for education, health and livelihood. (end)
