Mahinog celebrates 62nd charter day

The Municipality of Mahinog celebrates its charter day today, July 1, 2010 with lots of activities.

Mahinog was first established as a civil town on September 14, 1869.

Mahinog remained a town until 1903, when the Americans abolished Mahinog as a town and absorbed it as a barrio of Mambajao.

Mahinog restored its status as a town on July 1, 1948 by Executive Order No. 122 of President Manuel L. Roxas.

The municipal mayor of Mambajao at that time of separation of Mahinog from Mambajao was Meliton Limbaco. The Vice-Mayor was Pio Cagmat.

Sixto Abao, a civic leader from Hubangon, was appointed by the President of the Philippines as municipal mayor of Mahinog.

Appointed officials of the newly created municipality of Mahinog on July 1, 1948, were:

Municipal Mayor: Sixto Abao

Municipal Vice-Mayor: Tomas Estrobo

Municipal Councilors:
Agripino Pacuribot
Nicomedes Patangan
Indalicio Jajalla
Torcuato Dayao
Gregorio Castro
Policarpo Sajol

In February 11, 1997, Congress passed Republic Act No. 8253, declaring July 1 of every year a special non-working public holiday in the municipality of Mahinog, to be known as "Mahinog Charter Day."

This law was authored by Camiguin Representative Pedro P. Romualdo.
