December 16, 2008 could be considered as one of the memorable moments of the children, the parents, and families of St. Arnold Janssen Day Care Center, of Purok 3, Barangay San Isidro this City.
It was the last Christmas celebration conducted by HNU-CEDev being one of its outreach programs since HNU will turn over the Day Care services to the local government of Barangay San Isidro come March of this year.
The activity was done at La Casa del Verbo, a new name of the SVD Beach House in Libaong, Panglao.
Singing contests from both the adult and children were conducted. A dance contest was also done followed by the parlour games. All the contests and games had prizes, courtesy of Holy Name University through CEDev.
An exchanging gift among children and parents was also made early in the afternoon.
CEDev also received a considerable amount from a generous friend which was used to buy gift items to each pupil. All 52 pupils of the Day Care Center received special gifts and food items.
Parents did not come home empty handed because they also had gifts from CEDev and a free t-shirt with print of HNU and San Isidro partnership for community development
