Cebu City turns 78!

E-mail Print PDF
CEBU CITY, Philippines - "Today's celebration reminds us of our integrity, pride and prestige for being a self-reliant, independent and chartered city," said Cebu City Mayor Michael L Rama to the thousands of Cebuanos at the Plaza Sugbo as this city turned 78 last February 24, 2015 Tuesday.

The People's Mayor further underscored that we have to be proud as Cebu City is the “Queen City of the Philippines” and not only of the South, citing that, "Where is the Queen City of the North? Is there any?" He added that the city deserves the title because it is more peaceful, orderly and historically significant.

Cebu City which is also known as the "Cradle of Christianity in Asia", dubbed as "ASEAN City of Culture" by ASEAN Ministers Responsible for Culture and the Arts (AMCA), "Most Liveable City in the Philippines" by "Ang Pinaka" television program of GMA News TV, "Liveable Place in Asia" by Real Estate giant Lamudi, among others was born by virtue of Commonwealth Act No.58 through the initiative of Don Vicente Rama, the father of Cebu City Charter on February 24, 1937.

The then municipality of Cebu who was under the Cebu Provincial Government became an independent Chartered City known as the "City of Cebu" which was inaugurated as the third "Chartered City" of the Philippines, after Manila in 1571 and Baguio in 1909.

As the city turned 78 yesterday, various month-long activities were lined-up for this year's celebration which bears the theme, "Steering the City towards a Brighter and Better Future."

A Thanksgiving Mass at the Plaza Sugbo was offered to start the big day yesterday officiated by Fr. Jonas Mejares, rector of the Basilica del Sto. Niño who in his homily calls for unity and urged everyone for a thanksgiving to God putting everything else as secondary. He also rendered "This is the Moment" piece for everyone and reminded that our celebration of Cebu City Charter Day falls in the Lenten Season.

Right after the mass, the traditional Flag-raising ceremony also held at the Plaza Sugbo fronting Cebu City Hall followed, along with the "Pass in Review Ceremony" in honor of Don Vicente Rama conducted by Cebu City Traffic Operations Management (Citom) personnel.

The activity was highlighted by the ceremonial Charter Day Floral Offering to the life-size brass statue of Don Vicente Rama located in the Plaza Sugbo which was led by Mrs. Corazon Rama del Prado, the only living daughter of Don Vicente Rama, together with Mayor Rama and other members of the Rama Clan along with other City Officials, Department Heads and other Cebu City Government employees, heads of the different Organizations and Government Agencies and Offices, and other invited guests, among several others.

This year is the first time to conduct the ceremonial Charter Day Floral Offering to the Don Vicente Rama monument located in the Plaza Sugbo. In the previous years it was conducted in the Don Vicente Rama Bust in Cebu City Fire Station Compound, along N. Bacalso Avenue but Mayor Rama proceeded there after the event at Plaza Sugbo yesterday.

Mr. Raja Rama Nuñez, the nephew of the Mayor gave the response in behalf of the Rama Clan. He pointed out that Don Vicente Rama was a fighter, a Family Man, Journalist, and a lone Cebuano great leader who stood and fought to create an independent chartered city that we now enjoy and celebrate. He also thanked the thousands of Cebuanos from different walks of life who partook and witnessed this year's celebration.

Meanwhile, Mayor Rama also urged the city hall employees to give meaning to their existence as a real public servants citing that, "We have a mission, don’t just live for a bonus, don’t just live because of awards, don’t just live because of incentives but live so that when you die, you will still be alive in the hearts and minds of the people just like George Rama.

He said he personally dedicated the Charter Day celebration to Basak San Nicolas village chief George Rama who passed away last January but his memories and legacies will always be alive, adding that George is one of the posthumous awardees in the Charter Day celebration this year but he enthuses that any award must be given while the person is still alive.

Furthermore, later in the evening, the annual Testimonial Dinner and Awarding Ceremony took place at the Grand Ballroom of Marco Polo Plaza Hotel where the Outstanding Individuals and Institutions, Mayor's Special Awardees, Centenarian, Posthumous and Lifetime Service Awardees were honored and recognized.
