Thank You, Lord of 'Making Us Feel Brand New'

I am indeed feeling myself of being "brand new" for your thoughtfulness on my 65th birthday. I appreciate such spirit uplifting gesture coming from you for being a part in your life and what I have done in my most humble way of serving you and  kept our friendship burning.

My wife and I are very much thankful for your greetings and also to those who have given us a "minute" gift of love especially to our children, grandchildren.

The small city of La Carlota in Negros Island Region has a lot of beautiful places and natural spots to attract tourist all over the country and even the world. Recently the city observed the 3rd week of September as the tourism week with series of activities which may include the following a quiz for the elementary and secondary public and private schools, mural painting contest, immortal inspired (pictures), and "costumize" corner chair making,

New to this activity is mural painting contest. Sixteen talented artists of the city participated in the 2-day painting tilt. The participating contestants used the acrylic paint as their medium materials for painting. They used the perimeter fence of the Pax Academy, a private school serves as their canvas for the painting.

Since this contest is first ever that ever introduced as one of the contests in the observance of City Tourism Week, the tourism office hopes that by next year competition would be participated in by the talented boys and girls of the 23 elementary schools and 5 high schools.
