Last May 1, 2016, ZASURMIS Region held its Family Day at Alona’s Dream and Beach Resort in Jimenez, Misamis Occidental with its theme “One Big Happy Family: United with God at Work and at Play”. Coming in all the way from head office was Human Resource Management Division Manager Remedios Batucan. She was warmly welcomed by Regional Manager Esteban “Jun” Bonggo Jr. along with the area managers, and OPEC Officers.
May being a month of festivities, the ZASURMIS Family Day was designed as a Fiesta sa Nayon celebration.
The event was made more fun and colorful as each area team was assigned a cottage with the instruction to deck their cottage with Fiesta sa Nayon-inspired decoration. Thus, every cottage was unveiled with its own unique, colorful and meaningful décor. The Area B cottage was adjudged most beautiful.
Participating branches from different areas prepared folk dances with a modern twist, thus, a mixture of folk and modern music.
Aside from the cottage decorating contest and the modern folk dance presentations, a lot of games were prepared as well for each area to enjoy. Most of the games were patterned from the games usually being played during fiesta celebrations –hampas palayok, piso sa harina, dakop baktin to mention a few. Other games which were played during the event were draw-me-a-picture, tsinelas ni ronolo and balloon popping.
