Today, is the 62nd charter day of Cagayan de ORo City.

There will also be a benefit show at Bourbon St. Bistro, Rosario Arcade, Limketkai tonight for Hinikawan – a movement composed of health practitioners, outdoor groups, environment organizations, artists, musicians, and individuals, organized for the purpose of aiding derelict Baranggays and/or rural areas.
My friends have been asking me if our dear President Noynoy Aquino moved the June 12 Holiday to June 13 ( Why are they asking me? Am I close to P-noy? Lol!). Although I was still not able to search online on the status, I was sure it can no be moved to June 13. I remember a news report from Malacanang that not all Holidays can be moved before or after the exact date of celebration because there are celebrations which meant to stay on the exact day. And that includes June 12 … I believed it will lost its relevance if it will be moved.
All KAgay-anons will still be happy since July 15 is the City’s Charter Day.. so that means we have a day to relax and rest.
Cagayan de Oro City is now ready for the June 12 joint commemoration rites of the 113th anniversary of the declaration of the Philippine Independence , on June 14 for the 61sth anniversary of the declaration of Cagayan de Oro as a Chartered City and the 150th birth anniversary of Dr. Jose Rizal on June 19. A temporary stage was constructed at the Gaston Park for various programs and activities. I wish I could see a glimpse of the events and can take some pictures to post on this site.
