There are no classes for all levels of public and private schools in Cebu City tomorrow, February 24, to give way for the commemoration of the 79th Cebu City Charter Day.

It is also a special non-working holiday which means all offices in Cebu City will have no work tomorrow. Those who will require their employees to still report for work will have to pay an additional 30 percent for the holiday pay.

A series of activities were lined up by the Cebu City government tomorrow starting with a Mass at 7:30 am at the Plaza Sugbo Grounds in front of City Hall.

It will be followed by a floral offering to the brass monument of Don Vicente Rama also in Plaza Sugbo. Rama is considered the Father of Cebu City for authoring the Commonwealth Act No. 58 which established Cebu City as a Chartered City in 1936.

Cebu City Hall will launch its newly-opened Children’s Park in Barangay Pasil where the old Pasil Market used to stand.

At 10:30 am a Ceremonial concrete pouring will also be held at the site of the new Cebu City Medical Center (CCMC) building.

A testimonial dinner will also be hosted by the city government tomorrow evening at the Radisson Blu Hotel where the city will recognize several Outstanding Individuals, Outstanding Institutions, Centenarians and Posthumous Awardees.

Several mayor’s Special Awardees will also be recognized during the dinner. Every February 24 of each year is declared as a special non-working holiday in Cebu City by virtue of Republic Act No. 7287 which was approved in March 1992.
