Cebu City Councilor Margot Osmeña encourage the participants, guests and employees to keep the spirit of the Cebuano language and letters alive in each and everyone in honor of Don Vicente Yap Sotto during the commemoration of Vicente Sotto Day at Social Hall, Legislative Building today.
The Cebu City Government through the Cultural and Historical Affairs Commission (CHAC) organized Sotto’s birth anniversary a week earlier instead of having it on April 18, Thursday, since it falls on a Maundy Thursday.
Don Vicente Yap Sotto is the Father of Cebuano Journalism, Language and Literature. He was born on April 18, 1877, making 2019 as his 142th birth anniversary. (Margie P. Bulado & Jessa Celocia/PIO)
