Barbara Central School Class ’84 who took up Nursing and now based in New York .

Once again, the Rosario Family has proven that there is no mountain high enough for the persistent climber. Truly, theirs is a family that other families can look up to and emulate.

Also recognized during the affair was William Pfluger for community service.. Pfluger, an American, is a retired executive from Chevron. He is married to Sta. Barbaran, Nanette T. Erfe, the eldest daughtnr of Ernesto and Rose Erfe. Despite being an America , he dearly loved the Filipinos.

What the couple William and Nanette earned during their wedding were all donated to the Charity House of Mother Theresa in Lucao District, Dagupan City and to the Holy Family Parish.

Lately, the couple donated two housing units in Gawad Kalinga (GK) Maticmatic and another unit in GK- Larioville.

The 2009 Pawil Sta. Barbara town fiesta celebration ended on December 5 with a festivity of all Christians dubbed as “Pistay Kristiyano.” This evening affair featured presentations of all Christian churches in Sta. Barbara. Indeed, the town of Sta. Barbara is so blessed because of the fervent prayers said by all the participants through the leadership of their respective pastors.

“This is one of the best, if not the best fiesta celebration in our beloved hometown. And for this, I congratulate the Executive Committee for taking the lead and all those who in one way or another, have contributed to the success of the 268th town fiesta celebration of Sta. Barbara. Mabuhay ang Sta. Barbara. Mabuhay tayong lahat,” exclaimed Mayor Velasco. – DBC

Nang ipatupad ang batas taong 1937 upang payagan ang mga babae na kumandidato, agad sumabak sa eleksiyon at nanalo bilang konsehal ng Maynila si Carmen Planas. Dahil sa kanyang naging panalo lumakas ang loob ng iba pang kababaihan para tahakin din ang mundo ng pulitika.

Nang sumunod na taon, nahalal naman ang unang babaeng kongresista na si Elisa Ochoa na kumatawan sa lalawigan ng Agusan sa ikalawang National Assembly ng Commonwealth republic.

Taong 1950 naman nang maupo sa Senado ang unang babaeng senador sa katauhan ni Geronima Pecson.
