Most Outstanding Family Of The Year

We couldn't be more proud to be able to pick not one but two outstanding families in our barangay for this year, 2013.  They were chosen based on the criteria approved by the Barangay Council.  One of which is that the family lives a life, which reveres the Lord. Another is, despite financial limitations, parents were able to send their children to school and finished 4 year and vocational courses.

We are happy that each year, we find such family, which works and faces the challenges of making their dream come through. This inspires the other many Iyeeekenos, parents and children, to aspire the same. Education is the best tool in making a difference in our lives. It emulates to better their way of living. It empowers them to help improve their family lifestyle and be great examples in the community.

This year, our recipient is the family of Engr.& Mrs. Noli Dizon. They are active members of the Tortugas United Methodist Church. This couple is involved in many secular activities. Mr. Dizon also preaches and handles Bible Study groups. He is an employee of the City Government of Balanga All their children have finished their respective courses.

The other recipient is the family of Mr. & Mrs. Cesar Ramirez.
  Mr. and Mrs. Ramirez are both members of the Roman Catholic Church who actively participate in the outreach ministry of the church. Their children finished their studies.

We applaud these two recipients and the rest of the Iyeekenos families who strive to make a difference in their family life. They are truly the pride of Barangay Tortugas.. Mabuhay po kayo!
