More than three hundred senior citizens of San Antonio town in Quezon province gathered in a socialization event on Friday that included a fun walk and ballroom dance as part of the local government’s celebration of “Elderly Week”.

Lawyer Joanna Suarez, Katipunan ng Liping Pilipina (Kalipi) provincial federation president, represented her mother, Quezon Third District Rep. Aleta Suarez, as guest speaker.

In her message, the young Suarez said her mother has recently filed a bill in Congress that aims to address the hardships and efforts of parents in raising their children.

The proposed “Parents’ Welfare Act,” she said, will also provide allowances for senior citizens.

“All our life, our parents were there, providing what we need, especially in times of dire need. We must show our gratitude to them. This is the basis for the Parents’ Welfare Act,” Suarez said.

The celebration of Elderly Week from Oct. 1-7 coincided with San Antonio’s 62nd Founding Anniversary, as stated in an executive order issued by President Carlos P. Garcia in 1957 creating the Municipality of San Antonio.

The bill was authored by Tiaong town councilor Juanito Wagan who became the town’s first mayor.

The Elderly Week carries the theme “Healthy Aging Starts with Me”. (PNA)
