On Christmas Eve (12/24) 2015, RIMM conducted another Christmas giving in barangay Bignay, Laurel, Batangas, a dirt road mountain ridge above Taal Lake. The barangay captain is a strong proponent of family planning as he has/is witnessing the rapidly increasing mountain population.
RIMM members took two cars loaded with sacks of rice and snacks for children, then later switched to a jeepney arranged by the barangay captain to access the steep mountain dirt road. A Christmas party spirit persisted with the singing of Christmas songs during the presentation of gifts for 30 families that also included P100 for each family from club funds and P20 bills for every child and senior donated by new Rotarian member Betty.
After the Christmas giving party event the barangay captain invited our members to his home for a delicious lunch of fresh tilapia prepared by his wife.
