My warmest greetings to the Municipality of Sta. Magdalena, Sorsogon, as you celebrate your Town Fiesta and the Busaingan Festival.
Fiestas are a testament to our Christian faith, a celebration of our rich culture, and a showcase of the features that make it more fun in the Philippines. Indeed, this is an excellent opportunity for your community to uphold your pride of place, as you gather in thanksgiving for the bountiful year and fulfill your town’s goals, with the Almighty’s continued guidance. Let this event be a demonstration of your solidarity with the rest of the Filipino people in sustaining this momentum for equitable progress.
