A little about the company: Dolefil operates a fully integrated plantation and industrial facility in Polomolok, South Cotabato in Mindanao, for the production of fresh and processed pineapple for the export market. It also has operations in General Santos City, Municipality of Surallah in South Cotabato, and in the municipalities of Maramag and Talakag in Bukidnon. Founded in the year 1963.
In celebration of its 50 years with the theme: "Quality. Quality. Quality.". Dole Philippines @ 50 presents Festivals of Festivals which commemorate the 50 Golden Years of a company that has made its mark not only in the country, but in our lives. Together with the Sox bloggers, yours truly got an invite to attend the said event at Polomolok Grandstand, Polomolok, South Cotabato last June 15 Saturday. The event started with a grand parade on the main street of Polomolok, float parade and street dancing. Not to mention, the drum and lyre corps were part also.
Rain or shine, nothing's going to stop The SAINTS Dance troupe of St. Lorenzo School Of Polomolok Inc. showing to people what a professional performance is. Holding our nerves as we see the group performing native dances presenting different ethnic groups in the country while heaven pours its blessings in disguise. The three lovely ladies in front showed off to everyone their excellent singing prowess while different cultures were performed at their back. Indeed breathtaking performance for the dancers; and was hard for them to dance 'cause any moment, they might slip on the floor. It was an astonishing opening program. Bravo!
Before the game is on for the Festival of Festivals competition, there were performers invited around the region to perform like Drum and Lyre corps of three (3) different schools in Polomolok, Cheer dancers like NDDU Sarimanok pep squad from GenSan, Lamba Central Elementary School Chipettes from Banga, South Cotabato and Dolefil's Manufacturing Department Cheer dancers to name some.
