Baguio Midland Courier’s 75th year thanksgiving
The management and staff of the Baguio Midland Courier held a thanksgiving at the ancestral home of the Hamada family at Gen. Lim Street on April 30.
Select guests were invited to minimize mass gathering in this time of Covid-19 pandemic with Mayor Benjamin Magalong represented by his daughter, Katrina Andrea, and Rep. Mark Go gracing the occasion.
Long-time columnists and supporters of the Courier also joined the management and staff led by General Manager and Publisher Gloria Antoinette Hamada in celebrating the paper’s Diamond Jubilee anniversary.
The Courier was founded by siblings Oseo and Sinai Hamada in the post-war era with its four-page maiden issue hitting the streets of Baguio on April 28, 1947.
The paper would soon become the long-est running weekly regional publication that had reaped local, national, and international awards for civic journalism excellence.
