The late COMELEC Commisioner, Atty Julio F. Desamito celebrated his last birthday in Pozorrubio. He never got to leave. He died hours after, lending credence to his claim that, however far and whatever height his fate soared, his hometown kept calling him back. The umbilical cord was too strong.
Thus, on the weekend of July 25-26, 2009, the Desamito kids paid tribute to the 77th Birthday Anniversary of their Dad Julie and to the Pozorrubians whom their father held close to his heart. Not by holding a party where tummies get full for just a meal; but, through a Surgical, Medical and Dental Mission after which the unwell can hold on to life more than a while longer, more than a while better.
The mission was conducted in partnership with the Pozorrubio Local Government Unit, St. Jude Parish, Pozorrubio Redwell Jaycees, Pozorrubio High School Batch ’78 and ’80 and in tandem with the Rotary Club of San Francisco Del Monte.
