Moreno, City Hall execs launch symphony of lights

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)--Despite the rainy weather, Cagayan de Oro City Hall pushed through with their ‘Symphony of Lights’ program, December 3 with Mayor Oscar Moreno leading department heads and employees along with administration allies in the 19th City Council in launching the annual Christmas ceremony.

"The weather may be uncooperative but we decided to continue with the (Symphony of Lights) because it would have been a waste not to do so since it’s the last day heading to the weekend," said Moreno who thanked everyone for attending the ceremony.

The mayor also called on Kagay-anons to celebrate Christmas as a reminder of Jesus Christ’s birth and his mission of providing salvation to humanity.

"(In their own small way) the lights symbolize hope, joy and happiness (which we need in these uncertain times of the pandemic)," Moreno added.

He also thanked the City Hall bureaucracy and stakeholders for their untiring support in fast tracking the city’s efforts to achieve herd immunity on or before Christmas.

He said a lot of people didn’t believe that Cagayan de Oro would reach a good level of performance. "We hope to achieve herd immunity on or before Christmas and reach 80 percent vaccination rate by January next year," Moreno said. (CIO/PIA-10)
