Mabalacat City Tourism Officer and Association of Tourism Officers of the Philippines (ATOP) President Arwin Paul Lingat represented Mayor Crisostomo Garbo in the ceremonial lighting of the Hilton Clark Sun Valley Resort Christmas Tree held on November 15, 2021.

In his prepared message, Mayor Garbo said that the ceremonial lighting is a fitting welcome to the ‘better normal’.

“Today, we welcome the “better normal” by lighting up the Hilton Clark Christmas Tree. More than a Christmas fixture, may this tree motivate us to remain strong against the test of time, inspire us to be that ray of hope to our people in need, and remind us of our innate triumphant and jovial spirit over any adversity,” said the city mayor.

“As Christmas draws near, may we all be reminded to love and prioritize the safety of our families and friends, to value our precious time with them, to take good care of others, to embrace challenges and changes, to accept defeat, and ultimately, to rise again with renewed perspective, trust, and faith for our ever-loving God,” the mayor added.
