Davao del Norte – Festive optimism and confidence fill the air as the Province of Davao del Norte ups the ante in preparing the grand celebration of its 50th Founding Anniversary on July 1.
“It is a celebration of the many successes of the Dabaonon people and their bullishness about the future,” beamed Governor Anthony del Rosario, who expressed his gratitude for the opportunity of leading his people in marking the very significant milestone.
The governor said President Rodrigo Duterte is expected to grace the Anniversary Program.

With the theme, “Bulawanong Paghinumdum, Bulawanong Panlantaw (Golden Commemoration, Golden Vision),” the Dabaonons celebrate the evolution, development and achievements of the province over the past 50 years, while capitalizing on and nurturing their proud heritage, enduring multicultural identity, resiliency and creativity in building a better future.

Daily activities for the nine-day festivity will start on June 23, 2017, although the celebration softly opened with the launch of the 50-day Countdown of the anniversary last May 12.

The historic commemoration is firmly supported by the Tagum Agricultural Development Company, Inc. (TADECO), as the anniversary partner.
