BORONGAN CITY – With the theme “Siplat Ha Kakuri-an, Pitad Ha Kauswagan, Ipadayon Baysay Borongan,” everything is now all set for this year’s Charter Day fete of this city today.
The three -day activities kicked off last June 18 in the morning, with a Eucharistic Celebration at our Lady of the Nativity Cathedral and was followed by a sports parade around the city.

Then back at the city hall lobby, Mayor Abunda will deliver her Ulat sa Bayan address where she’ll outline her achievements for Boronganons especially her vision of Baysay Borongan. Her message will be followed by the awarding of prizes and certificates of recognitions to groups and individuals and the signing of memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Eastern Samar State University (ESSU) on the LGU’s Bulig Kablas Scholarship Program.
Then ex-Representative Cynthia Villar, the guest of honor, will deliver her message.
A supplemental feeding by the city social welfare office will be done at the lobby and a mass wedding shall give unwed couples a chance to tie the knot for free. The ceremonial turn-over of the city schools division to the city of Borongan will formally be done in the afternoon.
