Ilocos Norte summer tourism program to accept senior citizens

LAOAG CITY -— Senior citizens and retirees who are still capable to work are most welcome to apply for the Ilocos Norte summer tourism program of the provincial government.

Senior citizens are highly regarded for their rich knowledge and experience in history. Hence, they may serve as effective story tellers in heritage museums and churches being promoted to visitors in the province.

Interested applicants may start submitting their biodata to the Provincial Tourism Office – Capitol, La Tabacalera Tourist Center located in front of Museo Ilocos Norte or at the Taoid Museum on or before March 16, 2017. Other pertinent documents such as barangay clearance, community tax certificate and 2×2 I.D. picture are also required.

“We have once again opened our Summer Tourism Program! Lahat po ay imbitado na sumali at makiisa sa Kapitolyo, kabilang din ang mga senior citizen!” said a public announcement of the Ilocos Norte Tourism Office (INTO).

Aside from senior citizens, the INTO is also in need of tourism ambassador, utility personnel and registered nurses to serve as first aid personnel to assist in various tourism destinations of the province.

The first wave of tourist aide deployment will be on March 27 to April 27.
