January-March 2019: Venus at 56!

Last February 12, 2019, Barangay Venus marked  its 56th founding anniversary. The barangay has been experiencing its solidarity, harmony, and peace for more than half a century now.

It was an unforgettable day for everyone living in Venus, old and young alike. The day started with a barangay parade around 6am that started from Mamara, Purok Uranus down to Covered Court, Jupiter. The parade was prearranged by different organisations in the barangay, the PCA, the Women's org, 4Ps, and Senior Citizens. It was led by the Venus Elementary School's Drum and Lyre corp and the barangay officials. The Team Venus student doctors added the fun by face-painting the parade goers! 

An opening program emceed by Ma'am Doller was held in the Barangay Covered Court after the parade. The various organisations had their own yell to shout every time they got mentioned during the duration of the program. Snacks were served to quench the people's thirst from the 3-kilometer parade. Fun intermission numbers from the locals were given, too. Happiness filled the air, as everyone laughed and sang and danced. Winners of the fun run activity the group spearheaded on the 10th of February were also acknowledged to the stage and were awarded with cash prizes. 
Not long before lunch time, Mayor Magsalay, the Vice Mayor Chua, together with with Jon-Jon Jalosjos and the rest of Sergio Osmeña Sr. board members joined the celebration. The said officials graced the turn-over ceremony of the following structures: the Daycare Center in Mamara, Purok Venus, and the Women's Livelihood Center (which was rehabbed by the team) in Purok Mars. The officials even bought packs and packs of our Nutri-squash pansit cantons. Around 12pm of the day, everybody ate lunch together.

Contests on singing and dancing were the activities on the afternoon of the celebration. Team Venus student doctors was also acknowledged to the stage for the efforts in making the barangay a better, nicer, and a healthy place. The night of the Celebration, there was the barangay Disco at the Covered Court that was opened to everyone.

 It was truly an enjoyable day for the locals of Venus and for the team. Happiness was evident in everybody's faces, like there is no tomorrow. The love for one another filled the air, and the barangay's unity was strengthened. Located in the outskirts south of Zamboanga del Norte, Barangay Venus was founded on Feb 12, 1963. It was one of the few successfully established barangays of the municipality.
