With the advent of the 110th Guinarona Fiesta for San Pascual Baylon, and fresh from devastation wrought by Super Typhoon Haiyan, we wish to highlight the article about the delayed Guinarona Centennial Fiesta in 2012, featured in the Spanish press.  This is to encourage us to do more for our hometown and to helping institute positive changes.  Of course, we are still dealing with the loss of our century-old image of San Pascual, for which the Catholic Church is acting deaf and blind.  That is why, we have banded together to procure a state of the art San Pascual image, which will stay in private hands, and not subjugated to the Church.

Back in the day, our commencement exercises were held mid-March.  After that was playtime, with a lot of denizens opting to fly kites of myriads of sizes and configurations.  For the less audacious, there was play house, hide-and seek, get-in, tumbang preso, pitiw, softball, high jumping, swimming in the irrigation canals.  In other words, it was time to forget school.
