Monday Flag Raising Ceremony Never Falter
Flag raising ceremony at LGU-San Mateo has become an avenue for discovering talents among the employees. It is a day where everybody is longing to attend rain or shine.
But what was the story behind? During the advent of the then Municipal Mayor, Hon. Roberto C. Agcaoili, he noticed that flag raising ceremony usually happened at eight o’clock in the morning (8:00 A.M.) every Monday. In one of his messages, he suggested that said activity can be started earlier in order not to eat so much time for office work. An office memorandum was prepared to adjust the time of the flag ceremony from 8:00 A.M. to 7:30 A.M. So, from thereon, said activity had been observed 7:30 A.M. every Monday. The program was very simple. It started with an opening prayer, singing of the national anthem, administrative announcements and the message of the Local Chief Executive. This was the usual sequence of the program.
