PHLPost 6 Takes Part in NFA’s 43rd Anniversary

On invitation by National Food Authority Acting Regional Manager, Bernardo M. Asetre, PHLPost 6 took part in the sports activities in celebration of NFA’s 43rd Anniversary on September 23, 2015. 

NFA is one of the major DMTS clients of Phlpost 6, and its invitation was warmly accepted by PHLPost Area Director Fabiolita P. Ferraris, seeing the gesture as a means to foster camaraderie and sportsmanship among the employees of the two GOCCs, as well as to strengthen business relations with NFA. 

Our players had very little time to practice for the sports events, but that wasn’t obvious when they volleyed and tossed, spiked, blocked, and dug, to win against the NFA spikers in a thrilling mixed volleyball game in the morning. 

In the afternoon, our basketball players’ skills and mental alertness were tested to the limits when they went up against the bigger and brawnier players of NFA. Falling behind during the first two quarters, dread, apprehension, and excitement were felt by our players. 

Tension filled the air, but with the excellent coaching of 
Ms. Roueme Gertrude “Aweng” Supetran, and with our cheering squad headed by Ms. Carlotta Caillo egging them on, our players persevered, kept their eyes on the ball, and rallied to claim the victory in the end. It was a very close match, with PHLPost winning by just one point! 

For PHLPost 6 participants, it was truly a day worth remembering. And not only because of the victory. Friendships blossomed that day, too. 

PHLPost 6 Area Director Fabiolita P. Ferraris thanks NFA Acting Regional Manager, Bernardo M.Asetre, and of course NFA Admin Officer Ed Gonzaga and our very own Marketing Specialist Tess Planco, for going out of their way to make this happen.

PhlPost Area 6 Joins the 15th Caravan of Government Services

PHLPost Area 6, represented by a Postal Team headed by PHLPost 6 Administrative Officer Elsa Pameroyan and Marketing Specialist Tess Planco, participated in the 15th Caravan of Government Services spearheaded by the Office of the Ombudsman on August 18, 2015 at Toboso, Negros Occidental.

Letter Carriers from Escalante City, Toboso and
Calatrava Post Offices donned PHLPost t-shirts and boarded their motorcycles to join the motorcade from Toboso National Highway up to the Toboso Cultural Sports Center to officially mark the start of the caravan.

The caravan, the 15th in 7 years, provided an opportunity for Phlpost to educate the mailing public of the New Postal ID and the importance of the postal service amidst the emergence of modern technology. A booth was set up to entertain inquiries about the New Postal ID and address other mailing concerns.

PHLPost was also given the chance to award the Certificates of Recognition and cash worth Php 30,000 each to the 2014-2015 Letter Writing Project grand draw winner Mechael R. Belango of Calatrava I Central School and his teacher Ms. Juanita P. Gatuslao. A Plaque of Appreciation was, likewise, given to Principal II Fidela T. Claro of Calatraval I Central School for her active support to the PHLPost Sulat Mulat Project.

The caravan was very well received by the
public. More than 120 people were served by our Postal Team that day, and some of them went to San Carlos City Post Office the next day to apply for the new Postal ID.

To Deputy Ombudsman for the Visayas Paul Elmer M. Clemente and Acting Director Philip C. Camiguing, thank you for inviting us to participate in such a worthy activity. So great is the response that we couldn’t help but look forward to the next Caravan of Government Services.

Dingle Post Office Reopens at New Site

By: Ernie Jun Tenizo

Dingle Post Office resumes its postal transactions through a ceremonial opening at its new office at the newly constructed Dingle municipal building. The event was graced by the presence of no less than the Vice Mayor of Dingle who warmly ushered the postal representatives headed by PHLPost 6 Area Director Fabiolita P. Ferraris, CESO III. 

For the past few months, although delivery services in Dingle never ceased, postal window transactions were being entertained at Dueñas Post Office. With the opening of the post office at the new building, Dingleanons can now instantly avail themselves of the postal products to their convenience. They don’t need to travel to the next town, that is Dueñas, to claim their parcels and other mail items, either. 

Director Ferraris conveyed her appreciation to Mayor Dr. Rufino Palabrica III for the accommodation of PHLPost in its new office. In return, the lady director pledged an efficient and prompt postal service to his constituents. 

Municipal department heads, school principals and the head of a state college also attended the event. PHLPost Department Manager Archie Gonzales, AdFin Chief Atty. Benjie S. Yotoko, Quality Control Officer Ernie Jun Tenizo, and a group of postmasters from adjacent municipalities likewise were also present in support of the activity.
