Today, September 5, 2008 marks the 40th Anniversary of the charterhood of General Santos City.  It also serves as the culmination of the week-long !0th Tuna Festival which honors the industry that has placed this city of over a million people in the map.

Indeed, despite its young age, GenSan has achieved more than what any other city on the same league has.  Three times it was hailed as MOST COMPETITIVE MID-SIZED CITY, Cleanest City in the Philippines, and a lot more.  It has also been known as the Wellspring of Winners having produced sons and daughters who have gained prominence all over the country and all over the world in their own fields of endeavor. As the DTI 12 slogan says, “Galing ng Gensan, Galing ng Gensan”.

Let me then leave everyone with these few pictures I took this morning at the opening of the activities for the culmination of the 10th Tuna Festival.  It’s Bariles Republic’s way of saying, “HAPPY 10THE TUNA FESTIVAL EVERYONE!”.

Mabuhay ang mga generals!  🙂
