Happy 73rd Foundation Anniversary celebration to all our readers from General Santos City!
From a mere dusty prairie in the 40s when NLSA Chairman General Paulino Santos first arrived here along with the first batch of pioneering settlers from Luzon and the Visayas, GenSan has grown tremendously over the past decades, thanks in part to its winner of a people and a dynamic leadership.
Used to be known mainly as the Tuna Capital of the Philippines and the hometown of Manny Pacquiao, General Santos has proceeded to be known as the Home of Champions! Think Shamcey Supsup, think XB GenSan and True Colors, think Melai Cantiveros, think Gerald Anderson, think Nonito Donaire, among other generals who have brought fame, glory and honor to the City by the Bay.
What better way to clebrate this but to go out today and join the festivities at the culmination of the festival marking this milestone, the 2012 KALILANGAN!
On that note, here is the invitation from Mayor Darlene Antonino Custodio aired over the different provincial stations of GMA TV Network, including our very own GMA TV 8 GenSan!
