CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING

Christmas Tree

And though she be little, she is fierce”- Shakespeare

This quote holds true once again as the Nursing Division won the Christmas Tree Making Contest during the Year-End Review and Christmas Party (YERCP).

In terms of stance, the christmas tree of the Nursing Division seemed underdog in the said contest. The other entries were towering, with artistically placed lights and plants. But this did not dismay Mr Wendelle Cabuntocan and his team.

Mr Cabuntocan was one of the committed nurses who conceptualized their entry. During the opening of the YERCP last December 1, 2021, the five entries for the said contest were lighted by Dr Maria Lourdes K Otayza, MMMHMC Medical Center Chief.
