The Pampanga Press Club will honor ‘partners in recovery’ on its 73rd anniversary


CLARK FREEPORT The Pampanga Press Club (PPC) will celebrate its 73rd anniversary on November 24, 2022, under the theme “PPC: Pampanga’s Partner in Recovery”.

The PPC will mark this important milestone by recognizing individuals and organizations who have shown leadership during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, helping to save lives and reduce risk among people, including those of members of the CPAP.

Among those to be honored at the event, which will be held at the Royce Hotel in Clark Freeport, are Pampanga Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda; Vice Governor Lilia “Nanay” Pineda; the mayor of Mabalacat, Crisostomo Garbo; Angeles City Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin Jr.; the Chairman and CEO of the ROMAC group, René Romero; the NLEX company; Clark Development Corporation; Mekeni Food Corp. ; Dr. Monserrat Chichioco, medical chief of Jose B. Lingad Memorial General Hospital; and Dr. Dax Tidula, Head of the Pampanga COVID-19 Response Team.

The PPC thanks them for their interventions that eased the hardships of those in their care and for being the first to risk their own lives to save the lives of patients with COVID-19.

“We are grateful for the recipients’ unwavering support of our members at the height of the pandemic. Without hesitation, they reached out during a very difficult time and helped bring relief to the PPC and its members, helping us do our jobs as media professionals,” said PPC President Noel G. Tulabut.

He said that after two years of challenges brought by the pandemic, the PPC is now slowly recovering and getting back on its feet.

“Thanks to this, we have been able to continue to do our job as carriers of relevant information to the public during the global health crisis,” he added.

The event also aims to celebrate the lives of men and women journalists who have carried the torch through the decades despite the challenges of the time.

Over the years, the members of the PPC – seasoned over time – have individually and collectively defended the freedom of the press, being vanguards of truth and freedom. They have witnessed the tragedies of times past, natural or man-made, and have documented all the important milestones for Pampanga and even the country.

The PPC, the second-oldest news organization in the country after the Dumaguete Press Club and older than the National Press Club, also continues to have a more meaningful impact through community projects and immersions and has reopened its press conferences. – [email protected] and KapiHann – which are designed to help address community concerns.

Most recently it was involved in the adoption of some parcels of land for the Angeles City Watershed Program and is now a partner of the Provincial Government of Pampanga as an accredited civil society organization.

The PPC has also been scouted to be a member of the Provincial Peace and Order Council and the Provincial Development Council.

The anniversary celebration will also pay tribute to those who were ahead of their time, but who will never be forgotten for being vanguards of truth and symbols of integrity.

“PPC, which is made up of a talented pool of journalists, remains stronger, consistent and committed than ever. We are still part of a resilient community still recovering from the rehabilitation and transformation of Pampanga and its surroundings,” said Tulabut.
