Simple yet memorable celebration of the City Government’s 16th Foundation Day Anniversary was held on December 16, 2016 at the City Hall grounds. Amidst intermittent rains, the celebration was ushered in by the traditional Misa de Gallo officiated by Rev. Fr. Rey Malabanan which was attended by Hon. Sally A. Lee together with City Hall officials and employees, representatives of Barangay Councils, NGAs, NGOs, private groups and the general public. This was followed by the much-awaited breakfast (Pamarahaw) sponsored by the City Government.
The celebration would not be complete without the usual Program spiced with exotic dances, choral rendition, gift-giving, awarding of certificates of commendation and land titles, culminating with the inspiring message of Local Chief Executive and mother of the city —- the Hon. Sally A. Lee.
Part of the celebration was the sports competition played earlier among the different offices, slugging it out for top prizes in basketball, volleyball, kick ball and chess. (T. Fortes)
