In her opening remarks, CSC NCR Director Judith A. Dongallo-Chicano in profound reflection said: while the pandemic has wrought havoc, and caused great uncertainty, fear and isolation, it has given everyone time, for introspection, room for creativity and resourcefulness to make the most of the situation.

Sharing the same perspective and values, RCMB III Director Cynthia C. Foncardas enjoined every branch personnel’s active participation. It was time well spent for RCMB III, proof that every dark cloud has a silver lining, opportunities for betterment abound even in adversity. Capping the afternoon was a health and wellness, aerobic exercise participated in by the branch personnel.
