During the event, Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia reiterated the province’s achievements she mentioned in her State of the Province Address (SOPA) last July 15.

An exhibit of Women Trailblazers inside the Capitol building showcased Cebuanas of past and the present who have excelled in the fields of health, education, business and other advocacies and programs.

Meanwhile, Magpale in her opening speech described Garcia as the one who “manifolded that drive of progress” for the province.

“Improvements are visible… Gov. Gwen did not wait for opportunity, she looks for opportunity,” Magpale said.

An honor review was also given to the governor by the members of the 7thRegional Community Defense Group (7RCDG) led by Col. Raymundo Banares.

The launchings of the 5th season of the Governor’s Cup Horseshow and Competition, Governor Garcia’s Volleyball Cup and the Expanded Green and Wholesome Environment that Nurtures (Egwen) were also part of the highlights.
