Another commendable program of our City Mayor Joet Garcia was held last 20 March, 2011 at the Plaza Mayor de Balanga. This was the recognition of the Most Outstanding Father in all the barangays. Comprising the City of Balanga in the occasion of Balanga Fiesta. The month-long festivities honor the Feast of the Patron Saint Joseph, a carpenter and a good and responsible father to our Lord Jesus Christ.

Twenty-five fathers chosen and esteemed in each barangay together with the members of their families who were only too happy themselves for the joyful event.

Our very own and well-respected Most Outstanding Father in Barangay Tortugas was Mr. Mario G. Pajares Sr. He was born on 21, January 1929 in Baragay Pto. Rivas, Balanga, Bataan. He finished the courses Associate in Agricultural Education and Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. He spent his life in public service. He was a public school teacher for 18 years, 2 years as kawani in the Department of Agriculture and another 20 years as kawani and head of the Office of the Provincial Planning and Development.

He participated actively in the barangay and supported religious and community projects. Most of all, he’s a winner as the head of the family. He’s a good husband to his wife Mrs. Cecilia A. Pajares, and a responsible father to his children Chamberlin Pajares, Marcela Pajares, Mario Pajares Jr, Gerardo Pajares and Dindo Pajares. A good provider, a role model to his children and one who kept and still is keeping the way of the Lord by doing what is right and fair, Mr. Pajares deserved the recognition given him.

As expected, the night was a success and will surely inspire people to be the best that they can be and to watch over their lives.
