Welcome Kabarangay, Kababayan & Friends from Other Nations!

abay cGood day!

Thank you once and for all for your undying support to the council. I am pleased to report that we have a lot of developmental projects underway such as the construction of our new two-storey, fully airconditioned barangay hall beside the Mintal Gym, construction of roads at Rosal and Lantana Street, and installation of box culverts at Purok 4. Moreover, we are currently working on our proposal to the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) for the rehabilitation of our Japanese monumental sites, construction of Japanese Museum and rehabilitation of the Japanese Cemetery. It is our prayer that these said projects will be realized very soon.

Rotarians Gifts for Mintal PDF Print

The Rotary Club of Wakanayagi, Japan, in partnership with the Rotary Club of East Davao and the Rotary Club of Calinan, had a joint project that has provided Barangay Mintal very special gifts for the health and education of its constituents.

Last August 13, 2010, at 9:30 am, President Atsushi Sasaki, M.D., of the Rotary Club of Wakanayagi, headed the turnover ceremony of the Electro Cardiogram at the Tugbok Health Center, which is located in the barangay. In attendance are the officers and members of the Rotary Club, the Barangay Mintal Council, and the Barangay Mintal Staff and Functionaries, which composed of all the Purok Leaders of 21 Puroks in Mintal, barangay health volunteers, and lupon members.

After the turnover ceremony at the health center, another turnover ceremony was held at Mintal Elementary School wherein the Turnover Ceremony of the 100 Thousand Peso-Worth Rotary Reading Center took place. Pianicas were also given during the ceremony. This turnover ceremony was headed by Mr. Tadatsugu Maruyama, who is also from the Rotary Club of Wakanayagi.

The "Ireisai 2010" at Mintal Cemetery PDF Print

This year of 2010, the Japanese Ireisai, or Memorial Service, was co-organized by the Davao Consular Office of Davao, and the Philippine Nikkei-Jin Kai, Incorporated. It was held on a Sunday morning, last August 15, 2010, at the Mintal Cemetery, where up until this time some Japanese graves remain.

The Mintal Barangay Council headed by Punong Barangay Ramon M. Bargamento II was very grateful for the invitation extended to them to take part at this significant occasion. Kap Abay, on his message, took time to inform our Japanese friends of Barangay Mintal being officially declared as the Little Tokyo of Prewar Philippines.

What better way to pay tribute to the Japanese Community of the past than to hear those very words? Words that would ensure that the legacy of their ancestors will be preserved on the place they called home.
