Bruce Posted February 18, 2012 Posted February 18, 2012 The local Puericulture Center AND Maternity House #116 in Catbalogan is 90 this month. I am slowly renovating the place and attended a function today in which 50 poor families with small children in barangy #3 were given 2 kilos of rice and a box lunch. (guess who provided the rice).The function was attended by Jollibee him/herself and was a big hit with the kids. I asked that he/she say Hi to Ronald McDonald when they see him again. At least with Ronald you can tell it is a guy with big feet in the costume. No telling what is inside that Jollibee suit, but I am sure it is HOT in there.I was given an 'plaque' (heavy on the E here) and a book about the history of Catbalogan. Shook a lot of hands and said a few words. All my 'vote for me' and 'a chicken in every pot' jokes were useless..... I did not even try 'walk softly but carry a big stick'... or even a 'Don't ask what the Puericulture Center can do for you... ask what YOU can do for the Puericulture Center"....So I just shut up and tried to smile. Several thousand pictures were taken and I was threatened many times with 'this will be on my facebook!'. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
