On February 27, 2009, General Santos City will be celebrating its 70th Foundation Anniversary and a week-long 2009 Kalilangan Festival will likewise be conducted to commemorate this monumental event.

I have just received through my email this layout, commissioned by GSC Tourism Council Vice-Chair Rey Billena and Kalilangan Festival Director Orman Manansala and designed by Montage’s Ronald Velasquez (newly married to City Mayor’s Office’ Gaygay Llido) to serve as the official poster-calendar and billboard artwork for the city’s 70th birthday!

The poster features the photos of the city’s past mayors and vice-mayors, the incumbent councilors, Mayor Jun Acharon, Vice-Mayor Flor Congson and Congresswoman Darlene Antonino-Custodio.

The theme for this year’s 70th Foundation Anniversary which will run from February 16-27, 2009 is “Pagbabalik gunita sa pitumpong taon ng Kapayapaan, Kaunlaran at Kasiyahan”.

The official list of activities will be released in a few days.
