The ASIN Choir of the Holy Rosary Parish launched its yearly outreach program to far-flung barangays of the said municipality last Saturday, January 10, 2009.
After raising funds from the Christmas caroling (igi-igi) and winning the choir competition in their parish, December of last year and with the full support of the parish priest, Rev. Fr. Felix Warli Salise, they were able to purchase items such as rice, canned goods and other basic necessities to be given to the people of Sitio Upper and Lower Calumbangan, Barangay Bantolinao. Together with the municipal mayor, a former ASIN Choir member, Hon. Cecelia Rebosura, the group hiked more than a kilometer of slippery road under the pouring rain to bring the goods to the families.
A short program was conducted at the Lower Calumbangan chapel followed by the distribution of gifts to the forty eight (48) families.
"With the seventeen (17) years that we've been together, we're blessed with many accomplishments and successes. We just want to share these blessings to our fellow Antequeranians," Mrs. Belina Familiar, founder of the ASIN Choir said. (Mr. Dodz)
