“We are very proud of the legacy projects you are leaving behind in the Ministry.
“Many sets of Corps members have come and gone, but your set is distinct in the delivery of your Community Development Service.
“Today, the three rebranded and renovated Sign-posts will offer passersby better view and description about the position of the Ministry, especially those who are not familiar with the location.
“Secondly, we are one of the largest Ministries in the State, both in workforce and otherwise. The additional restrooms will help to meet the needs of our daily rising visitors.
