Kapangihanons Celebrate Fiesta in MM

             A large number of residents of Barangay San Francisco (Kapangihan), Bulusan, converged at the Karuhatan Barangay Hall, Valenzuela City, to celebrate their fiesta last October 19.

            The affair started with an ecumenical mass at 4:00 P.M. officiated by Rev. Salvador “Buddy” Gacias of the Evangelical Methodist Church who is also the president of the Kapangihan Kapatiran Association, Inc. (KKAI).

            Highlighting the occasion was the coronation of Little Miss KKAI, Jaime Flores.  Others in her entourage were: Baby Serveño (Little Miss Hope), Pauline Jewel (Little Miss Unity), Janine Briones (1st runner-up), and Christine Fuasa (2nd runner-up).

            Among those who graced the celebration were Mr. & Mrs. Rogelio Fuentes, Mr. & Mrs. Ulpiano Sorra, and other Buluseños from other barangays.

            In his message, Mr. Fuentes lauded the Kapangihanons for their unity and existence as one of the few very active barangay associations of Bulusan based in Metro-Manila.  He also thanked them for their participation in the activities of Damayan-Buluseño, Inc.

            Rev. Gacias who is a major in the Philippine Army and chaplain at the V. Luna Memorial Hospital in Quezon City, told Mr. Fuentes that KKAI was founded in 1997 and since then has been celebrating their barangay fiesta every year on the third Sunday of October.
