BUTUAN CITY, Mar. 29 (PIA) – On its 40th anniversary celebration, the Butuan City Water District (BCWD) has lined-up several activities for its concessionaires from March 22 to April 5, 2014.

To jumpstart the celebration, a motorcade will be conducted on Tuesday, April 1, 8:00 a.m. and assembly area will be at the Libertad Sports Complex, this city.

Also, a bloodletting activity will be conducted on the same day at the BCWD Training Hall, in coordination with the Philippine National Red Cross (PRC). It will start from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

“Those concessionaires who are interested to donate their blood for a cause can go to the training hall and we will be glad to accommodate them. The first 40 donors will receive t-shirts,” said Anselmo Sang Tian, BCWD General Manager.

Sang Tian added that aside from the bloodletting, BCWD will also be rewarding its 40th anniversary t-shirt for the first 40 concessionaires who will pay their water bill on April 1.

Also, last activity scheduled for the anniversary as a way of sharing its blessings to the community is the distribution of grocery items to paying concessionaires on April 2 and 4, 2014 or until supplies last.

This year’s celebration is anchored on the theme “BCWD: 40 Years of Addressing the Challenges in Providing Potable and Safe Water.” (JPG/PIA-Caraga)
