Celebrating the 436th Founding Anniversary of Batangas Province

We Batangueños held our head up high with the pride of celebrating the 436th year of the foundation of the Provincial Government of Batangas. “Dangal at Yaman ng Batangas” accurately describes the nearing half a millennium of existence of the Batangas Province as we have strived to be both prosperous and dignified Filipinos.

The event was held at the Provincial Auditoriun, Capitol Compound, Batangas City and opened with St. Bridget Colleges leading the National Anthem followed by the Batangan Hymn led by the Batangas Province HS for Culture and Arts. We were welcomed by Vice Gov. Nas Ona, and then came an inspiring message from Governor Hermilando Mandanas himself.

Numerous awards were given such as:
