After quite a long time since the LGU-Hermosa had their flag raising ceremony before the Covid-19 pandemic, for their fresh start under their new term, the first flag raising ceremony was held on the first Monday of July at the Hermosa Covered Court under the “strong and inspiring leadership” of Hermosa Mayor Antonio Joseph “Jopet” Inton.
Mayor Jopet was joined by fellow newly-elected and reelected “Lingkod Bayans” of Hermosa, including the department heads and staff of the Local Government of Hermosa.
In his speech, Mayor Inton tackled pushing for the continuous development projects in infrastructure, investments, agriculture and other programs that will further raise the level and continuous growth of the Municipality’s economy.
The traditional flag raising ceremony was also attended by personnel from Hermosa BFP, Hermosa Police, Hermosa Marshals, LGBTQIA+ community, members of Ina ng Hermosa, Single Moms, Barangay Captains, Sangguniang Kabataan, Rotary Club of Freeport Zone, and Student Summer Job Programs or SPES.
Before this, they have also attended a simple Thanksgiving Mass for the newly-elected officials officiated by the town’s Parish Priest Fr. Tony Quintos at the Saint Peter of Verona Parish Church.
