Centralians, guests and local farmers attending the launching of the Organic Agrifair for 2018.
The Organic Agrifair for 2018 was formally launched at the newest Robinsons Mall in Pavia, Iloilo on Wednesday evening, November 7, 2018. It was attended by members of the different committees led by the overall chairman, Joel H. Somosierra, and other guests. The program started with Mr. Rudel Obed Dianala’s guitar prelude and the invocation led by Rev. Francis Neil G. Jalando-on, Communications Director. Engr. Levi De Los Santos, Outreach Director, gave the rationale on the week-long agrifair program and exhibits.
Mall goers and shoppers received different sachets of vegetable seedlings—sitao, mongo, eggplant, and squash, among others. They were also entertained by a variety of songs and tunes. The Central Spirit of volunteerism brought talented members of the CPU family to play folk, pop, and contemporary music on stage. 3’s Harmony of CPU, composed of Agrifair chairman, Joel Somosierra, and former CPU employees, Jason ‘Jing’ Pagunsan and Rudel Obed Dianala, rendered an acoustic performance of classical songs. Mr. Dianala and Engr. Barry Jone Matutina, HRD Personnel, rendered guitar solo performances.
