Catanduanes prepares for ‘meaningful’ commemoration of province’s 73rd Liberation
The province of Catanduanes is now preparing for a “meaningful” commemoration of 73rd Liberation of the province on February 8, 2018.
The provincial government said that this year’s celebration “will be something different and more meaningful compared to its customary ceremonies for the past years.”
The celebration for this year is in collaboration with professors from Catanduanes State University, Ramon Felipe Sarmiento and Adem Nalu Rubio, both enthusiasts and advocates of Catanduanes’ history and culture.
Prof. Sarmiento said that the occasion will “give what is due to the two living veterans and it will raise awareness on the importance of our heroes among the people especially the youth.
The commemoration will showcase performers from the Catanduanes Cultural Troupe and the Capitol Chorale that is “expected to bring a thematic and a more of a production-like staging of the battle for Catanduanes’ liberation.”
The event will likewise present tribute to the province’s liberators especially to Mr. Tomas Gil and Mr. Cenon Camano who will both be given recognition.
Moreover, the youth and other sectors in the community will also be part of this year’s celebration.
