Once again, Villaverde has proven itself to all Novo Vizcayanos that despite of being a 5th class municipality as well as the smallest town of Nueva Vizcaya, it can be a GIGANTIC in terms of talent and ingenuity. The town was adjudged as the Best Performing Local Government Unit during the recently concluded Nueva Vizcaya’s Ammungan Festival 2015 last May 21-24, 2015. Because of the common goal of the Villaverdians to realize success, it achieved the awards of 1st place for Lola Ganda 2015, 2nd Runner-up on Street Dancing (“Paddek ken Saniweng”), 3rd place on the Float Competition (Kuligligan), 3rd place on the Search for Best Booth (Balay ti Away), 3rd Runner-up on the Search for Saniata ti Nueva Vizcaya 2015 and Mr. Talent for Lolo Pogi 2015.
All the sweat, preparation, hardwork, overtime and collaboration of the involved individuals in each contested category through the leadership of the very able Municipal Mayor Atty Ronelie dP. Ubando-Valtoribio were compensated by of the honor that they had been awarded to the municipality. Indeed, there is truth in the adage of Publilius Syrus that WHERE THERE IS UNITY, THERE IS ALWAYS VICTORY!
