New Year’s Message

As the Negrenses around the world come together with friends and family, I wish everyone a happy, healthy, prosperous and blessed new year!

As we bid goodbye to 2019 and welcome 2020, let us reflect on the year that was and get ready for the new one.

Let this new beginning give us renewed anticipation and hope for better days ahead.

I know that together we will continue to build on the progress of 2019 for a better and brighter 2020!

Let us continue to fervently pray to Almighty GOD not just for progress and development but also for the continued protection of our people and province from natural and man made disasters and calamities.
