Yesterday, April 18, the summer season comes in full circle with the opening of the Mayor’s Cup, an annual sportsfest held to scout star athletes and harness their potentials to represent Gumaca in future competitions. Among the events included are: basketball, volleyball, lawn tennis, table tennis, taekwondo, chess, badminton, football among others.
Vice Mayor Dr. Elchor Caralian, himself a self-confessed basketball enthusiast like our Mayor Erwin Caralian, led the opening ceremony and in his message reiterated discipline to be very important in becoming a true sportsman. The Vice Mayor also committed LGUs support to sports development by allotting funds to its various programs including conduct of trainings in different fields. He also mentioned the two Wushu players from GNHS Mark Irvin Chong and Roi Fuenzalida now about to compete in Palarong Pambansa to serve as inspiration to our youth to strive harder. At the same, VM Doc Elchor reminded students that excelling in sports should never be an excuse not to do well in their academics because scholarships can only be attained with balance.
Vice Mayor Elchor also expressed his appreciation to Municipal Sports Council members SFO4 Ruel Caparros and Jayvee Villapando for extending their assistance to our Sports Coordinators Arne Armando & Mark Principe to make this league a success.

This is another public service offered by LGU Gumaca headed by Mayor Erwin Caralian for the constituency.
Last April 18, 2017, our indefatigable Mayor Erwin Caralian went to the Department of Transportation for a meeting with its Director - Eduardo J. Mangalili. This is regarding the Construction of Causeway Head and Additional Pier at Villabota Port. With the improvement of the existing port, more sea vessels transporting goods and people can be accommodated. Also present in the meeting is DOTr Area Project Engineer Juan Apolinar.
This is yet another project of Mayor Caralian partnering with national government agencies to ensure seamless delivery of basic services this time for our sea travelers and traders.
February is Feb-ibig month with today - the 14th as Valentine’s Day. In Gumaca, Mayor Erwin Caralian has made it a tradition to hold the Kasalang Bayan not only to celebrate the love month but more importantly to solemnize the wedding hassle-free of couples who want to tie the knots and especially of those who have been living together without the sanctity of marriage. All they have to do is just submit their applications and make themselves available on the wedding date, nothing more, nothing less!
Through the collaboration of the Mayor’s Office and the Civil Registrar’s Office, preparations began as early as January from the gathering of CENOMAR to the minutest details of the reception – the venue, the wedding cake, the red wine, the doves, the foods and the ceremony itself ensuring that the day will become a memory to last a lifetime. Wedding hosts and singers are likewise taken cared of to make it a complete wedding package.
And so this year, 42 pairs of them, take their vows as husbands and wives in the presence of our Mayor and their sponsors and promise to each other in the name of our dear Lord God to love another for all eternity. Yes, today starts their journey to forever!In his message, Mayor Erwin emphasized the importance of faith by which every marriage should be anchored and that every household must have a Bible with the heads of every family sharing the beautiful words written in it and allot Sundays as worship days.
