MARINA’s birthday celebration started with a mass right after Monday’s flag ceremony and a speech from deputy administrator for operations and planning Atty. Nicasio Conti.
A tent set up the day before featured stalls that showcased every division’s service, crafted by the respective division staff.
MARINA’s office operations did not have to stop as staff took turns checking on what was going on in the tent.
After lunch break, Brother Ricky, our Mr. Richard D. Hora, who was master of ceremonies for the remaining leg of the program, continued the raffle draw of door prizes.
The Philippine Coast Guard band set the tone for the awaited Boodle Fight dinner. The evening continued on with more winners and musical intermissions. MARINA just turned 41!
