Malungon celebrates 53rd founding anniversary

MALUNGON, Sarangani (July 15, 2022) – "Sa atong panaghiuban, dili imposible nga makab-ot ug matuman ang atong mga plano alang sa kalambuan sa Malungon," said Mayor Maria Theresa D. Constantino in her Executive Report on July 15 during the inaugural program of the 53rd Founding Anniversary of the municipality at the Malungon Sunken Arena.

Constantino focused her report on her I-HEARD initiative. I-HEARD stands for Infrastructure, Health, Education, Agriculture, Resource Management and Environmental Protection, and Drug and Criminality Prevention.

Constantino's report included the town's accomplishments from 2021 until the first quarter of 2022 under her leadership.

The mayor also promised to continue her public service "at her best" in her last term as the local chief executive of the town.

During the address of Governor Rogelio "Ruel" D. Pacquiao, he acknowledged the legacies and accomplishments of the Constantino family in Malungon for over 50 years.

Pacquiao also appealed to the people of Malungon "to be with me" as he continues to push through his governance direction, dubbed Ronda Probinsya, which is "to bring public service closer to the people."

He said "ginasigurado nako, kauban si Mayor Tessa ug ang tanang mga opsiyales sa probinsya, matag munisipyo ug hantod sa mga barangay nga kami magtinabangay aron ipadayon pa ang paglambo sa atong probinsya."

Present during the event were Board Members Jose Tranquilino Ruiz, Gwynn Singcoy, and Ephraim Galzote, municipal heads and employees, men and women in uniform, and some provincial and regional directors.

Prior to the inaugural program, a civic-military parade, floral offering, and thanksgiving service were conducted.

The anniversary celebration commenced on July 12, which was celebrated through various activities including medical and dental outreach, basketball and volleyball games, offroad car show, search for Mutya ng Malungon, and jobs fair and livelihood forum.

This year’s anniversary celebration is anchored on the theme "Our home beyond the hills." (Jake Narte-Joshua John Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
