CSF Joins Nation In 120th Philippine Independence Day Celebration [ Wednesday, 13th of June 2018 | 4 months ago ]
Some monuments of national and local heroes built at the Heroes Park, including Dr. Jose Rizal’s and Chief Justice Jose Abad Santos’ were wreath-laid by Santiago, Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin, City Councilors, Region 3 government agencies’ regional directors, Military and Uniformed Contingents, CSF-LGU department heads, and members of non-government organizations.
Delegates of the wreath-laying ceremonies also graced the Civic Military Parade followed by the Flag Raising ceremony and a short program held at Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center.
During his speech, Santiago highlighted that in CSF, independence equates to the idea that Fernandinos should freely avail the services of the city, such as education, employment, and investment opportunities which could improve their living.
“Dapat lamang na malayang makatanggap ng mga serbisyo ang mga Fernandino. Dapat lamang na ang bawat buwis na pumapasok sa ating gobyerno ay mapalitan ng dekalidad na serbisyo. Dedikasyon natin na malayang makapag-aral, makapag-trabaho, at makapamuhunan ang Fernandinos sa syudad- yan ang tunay na kahulugan ng kalayaan,” said Santiago.
In addition, Santiago expressed that apart from providing social services, the city aims for great solidarity through giving every Fernandino a chance to voice out their concerns and to express their ideals for the common good.
“Ang kalayaan ay produkto ng pagkakaisa at ang pagkakaisa ay matatamasa kung hahayaan nating maisambit ng bawat Fernandino sa ating mga nanunungkulan at empleyado ang kanilang hinaing at kanilang ideya para sa ikakabuti ng nilalahat,” added Santiago.
Meanwhile, the Flag Raising Ceremony was followed by a keynote speech by Ms. Desiree Ann Benipayo, a relative of Jose Abad Santos and the author of “Honor: The Legacy of Jose Abad Santos” and a headdress competition participated by the members of the education sector, sectoral groups, non-government organizations, and regional government agencies, and city hall offices and attached agencies.
The Philippines Independence Day celebration this year, with the theme, “KALAYAAN 2018 Pagbabagong Ipinaglalaban, Alay sa Masaganang Kinabukasan,” commemorates the 120th year of the country’s independence from Spanish colonizers since 1898.
