“I die without seeing the dawn brighten over my native land. You who have it to see, welcome it…and forget not those who have fallen during the night!” -Jose Rizal The 123rd Anniversary of the Martyrdom of Dr. Jose P. Rizal on December 30, 2019 was commemorated in a very grand celebration by LGU-Palompon, Leyte. The program was perfectly hosted by the Palompon Institute of Technology, which showcased an excellent tribute on the life of our National Hero. The play was a vivid interpretation viewed in the dance drama scenery of “Rizal writing his novel”, the “arrest and exile of Rizal”, the Rizal execution” and more.
The program was made grand with the warm welcome given by Vice-Mayor Ramon C. Oñate, and the inspiring message of Mayor Myra Georgina L. Arevalo M.D, which she cited the worthy accomplishments. And projects on going in Palompon. The final activity was concluded with the floral offering by the different Local Agencies, Academe and other institutions. Indeed the whole event was completed and successfully done in commemoration of the martyrdom of Dr. Jose P. Rizal.
