Bantayan Island will never forget Roberto Eduardo ?Bobby? Aboitiz.
The Municipality of Bantayan handed over a charcoal painting and a collage of photos of the late Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. president to Mrs. Marian Aboitiz.
A video commemorating the philanthropist?s works was also shown as a monument to his community advocacies.
?For the Bantayanons, these schools and day care centers are not just mere buildings, but serve as standing monuments of a legend that is Roberto Bobby Aboitiz. We are here today to express our deep gratitude to the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc for the priceless assistance you have extended to Bantayan and the thousands of Banyatanons thru the years. The continued partnership of RAFI and Bantayan is testament to our shared commitment to education. We take the road less taken and fight on because that is what Sir Bobby would have wanted us to do. May the memory of this great man continue to be our guiding light in building stronger, better and brighter communities. I assure you, his bugsay legacy will live on. Sir Bobby?s memory and legacy not only lingers but lives forever in our hearts.?, Mayor Chris Escario said in his speech.
With sir Bobby?s ?bugsay? legacy, the future of Bantayon remains promising and bright. #
