A Hymn of our own!

by jv

“The Pozorrubio Hymn, as with the other symbols of the municipality, should enthuse each and everyone of us to be forever proud of being Pozorrubians wherever we find ourselves, and should inspire us to dream, to plan and to work together for the progress of our town and our people.”

Per Resolution No. 38 – 030209 approved unanimously on March 2, 2009 during the regular session of the Sangguniang Bayan, the revised Pozorubio hymn has been adopted as the official municipal hymn of the town.

The original hymn was composed and conceptualized by Mel Jovellanos in the year 2006. Since then, it had undergone a series of refinements in its melody and composition. Its lyrics were revised in tandem by SBM Dennis C. Uy, District II Supervisor Dr. Rolando Amansec and municipal resident writer Jing Villamil. Musical arrangement was contracted to Gere Domingo.

On January 9, 2009, at the opening program of the Community and Balikbayan Night in celebration of the 139th Founding Anniversary and Town Fiesta, the hymn was first officially heard in public. 

By virtue of the resolution, Mayor Emma Chan instructed all schools and other government and semi-government offices to include the singing of the Pozorrubio Hymn during Flag-Raising rites and before the start of any significant occasion wherein the various sectors or members of the community are one in solidarity and purpose. In her letter of instruction, the mayor writes: the Pozorrubio Hymn, as with the other symbols of the municipality, should enthuse each and everyone of us to be forever proud of being Pozorrubians wherever we find ourselves, and should inspire us to dream, to plan and to work together for the progress of our town and our people.

Below is a printout of the lyrics of Pozorrubio Hymn. The CD copy of the Pozorrubio Hymn is available upon request.

Alternative Learning graduates senior citizens!

by jv Pozorrubio’s Alternative Learning System (originally called Non-Formal Education) is regarded as the only successful ALS in Division II that is fully sponsored and financed by a Local Government Unit. This is according to Dr. Belinda Barrozo, ALS Education Supervisor, in her speech on March 14, 2009 during the ALS Completion Program held at the Benigno V. Aldana National High School PTA-Social Hall. And this is because Pozorrubio ALS is also otherwise referred too as the Art and Emma Project to which the couple had given their personal commitment since former Mayor Artemio Chan was still the chief executive of the town. And now, for SY 2008-2009, Pozorrubio ALS graduates senior citizens. During the completion program wherein Mayor Emma Chan was guest of honor, there were fifteen (15) senior citizens’ Literacy Completers, aside from the sixteen (16) Literacy cum Livelihood Completers, and fourteen (14) Accreditation and Equivalency Completers. Certificates of Appreciaiton were also given to three (3) Outstanding Barangay Captains who were most cooperative in its implementation and most participative in enjoining their kabaranggayan to take advantage of the ALS.
