City rededicates
historical marker

BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO

Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella led city officials and the members of the Bacolod Cultural Foundation Inc. at the re-dedication of the historical marker commemorating the surrender of Spanish forces to local Filipino forces in Bacolod City at the Fountain of Justice at the Bacolod City Hall yesterday.

BCFI Cultural-Historical chairman Violeta Gonzaga yesterday appealed to the members of the City Council to pass a resolution leading to an ordinance requiring all schools, universities and colleges teaching Philippine history to include Bacolod and, Negrense history.

Puentevella said yesterday was a very big day for the local leadership and announced that he administered the oath of barangay captains of Abang Lingkod who joined his MKK party.

He congratulated the BCFI for leading the historical occasion yesterday.

Elsa Leonardia, who represented Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia, said this historical event is proof of the uniqueness of Negrenses, compared to people in other provinces, in finding a solution to a problem, through cooperation, creativity and courage.

She said Congressman Leonardia congratulates the BCFI for this activity that will remind people of the event that occurred in the Fountain of Justice 115 years ago.*CGS
