Taguig City warmly welcomed 600 senior citizens at the Lakeshore Hall on Thursday, September 21, for a day filled with joyous dancing, camaraderie, and educational sessions as part of the city's annual Grandparents' Day celebration. In this heartwarming gathering, both lolos and lolas from the EMBO barangays also participated.

As a city that is Transformative, Lively, and Caring, Taguig holds its senior citizens in high regard, providing them with respect and unwavering support through the Office for Senior Citizen Affairs (OSCA) and Taguig Association of Senior Citizens (TASC).

Mayor Lani Cayetano expressed her appreciation for the significant role senior citizens play in the community, saying, "In the City of Taguig, we recognize the valuable contribution of our senior citizens. We see you as productive members of our community and we see you as good partners of the local government."


For 82-year-old resident Rogelio Villamarin of Barangay Pembo, this year's Grandparents' Day celebration was a truly memorable experience. He commended the city's kindness and warm reception, stating, "I see your kindness, your entertaining us as your new family. I am truly grateful for the kindness of the people of Taguig."

Mercidita Lopez, 71, from Barangay Western Bicutan, echoed similar sentiments and expressed her gratitude to Mayor Lani Cayetano for her "love and care" for the elderly in Taguig. "She is very compassionate towards senior citizens like us," shared Nanay Mercidita.

During the event, grandparents and their grandchildren strengthened their close bonds through a seminar titled "Grandparents' Role in Teaching Values to the Youth." This seminar aimed to impart essential values, such as respect, understanding, and listening to elders, to the younger generation.

Adding a dash of excitement to the day, a lively Zumba Dance Competition saw representatives from various barangays showcasing their dancing prowess. Cluster No. 5, comprising Barangays Tanyag, Upper Bicutan, Central Bicutan, North Daang Hari, and South Daang Hari, was crowned the Grand Champion for their outstanding cheerdance performance with an Environment Awareness theme.


The event's highlights also included special performances by senior citizens and their grandchildren in the "That's my Lolo, That's my Lola" segment. Representatives from Brgy. South Signal clinched victory in this heartwarming showcase of talent and affection.

In addition to the spirited competitions and informative seminar, free flu vaccinations were offered to all attendees.

Happy Grandparents' Day to the beloved Lolos and Lolas of Taguig!
