Laguna celebrates 448th Founding Anniversary

October 27, 2019

 

STA. CRUZ, Laguna - The Provincial Government of Laguna prepared a five-day celebration for the province’s 448th Founding Anniversary on July 22-26, 2019.

 

The theme for this year is “Itaguyod at Tangkilikin ang Sariling Atin,” aimed at raising public awareness on the importance of patronizing Laguna’s own products, thus increasing local sales and creating more jobs for the Lagunenses.

 

Led by Governor Ramil L. Hernandez, the festivities started with the launching of the project on Piña Production and Fiber Processing  for “The Making of Pinyang Barong Tagalog.” Planting of the pineapple variety specifically grown for its fiber will start in the municipalities of Lumban, Kalayaan, and Cavinti.

 

Simultaneously launched was the “Campaign Awareness on the Implementation of Sampaguita Production” and the ordinance that was passed to support the project with the sampaguita or jasmine sambac being declared as the provincial flower of the province of Laguna.

 

 

 

Other highlights of the week’s celebration featured a tree planting activity by 500 students in Brgy. Uwisan, Calamba City; seminar on herbs and spices; on-the-spot poster making contest; jobs fair; medical caravans for male and female employees of the provincial government; senior citizens ballroom dancing, and awarding of centenarians.

 

Moreover, a rescue march, static display of various equipment, and bloodletting activity were organized by the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office at the Time Plaza, all in line with the national Disaster Resiliency Month celebration.

 

On the last day, a grand parade was held running along the national highway from Brgy. Pagsawitan up to the provincial capitol compound. It was participated in by offices of the provincial government, local and national partner agencies, Philippine Army, the PNP, DepEd, local officials,  civic and sectoral groups, and companies and associations from the private sector.
