HISTORY OF BARANGAY BAGUINDOC

Baguindoc was a little sitio before its creation as a barangay in the year 1969. It was named after the first settlers of the place the “Baguindoc Family.”

Baguindoc is a plain fertile land located at the eastern part of Moncada and at the western part of the town near a “danao” now popularly known as the Quinabontoc Creek. The creek is 23 hecs. And it is the largest body of water in the municipality. The economic status of the people is moderate. The income of the peoples comes mainly from farming and fishing. The main crops of the place are rice, sugarcane, corn and vegetables; they usually sell their products at the nearby towns, Moncada and Paniqui.

Most of the people of Baguindoc are Aglipayan and almost everybody speaks Ilocano.

The first barrio captain was Antonio Baguindoc. His grandson Leandro Baguindoc succeeded him and become the barrio captain in the year 1946 – 1954. Other barangay captains who played an important role in the making of Baguindoc a better place to live in were the ffg: Barangay Captain Sergio Ermitanio and Barangay Captain Faustino Agbisit, Jr.

At present, Barangay Captain Eduardo V. Padero tries his best efforts to focus on the general welfare of the barangay constituents while the barangay people is looking forward for a better barangay through their own efforts and initiative, with the assistance of the Local Government.

HISTORY OF BARANGAY CAMPOS

 

San Francisco is the biggest of ANAO’s three oldest barrios. It is located along the provincial road between km post 154 and 155 branching from the Mc Arthur Highway between Paniqui and Moncada. The residents, most of whom are farmers, belong to the lower middle class. For its boundaries, the Quinabontoc water shed basin is on the north, the barrio San Jose Riceland on the east, barrio Sta. Ines of Paniqui on the south, and barrio Sta. Maria of Moncada on the west. The farmlands remain unirrigated. Rice and sugarcane are the principal crops. Many residents have backyard cattle, hog, and poultry raising. They catch fish in the rice puddies and in the creeks and plant local vegetables for food.

“MIBOLSA” was the original name given to the barrio by its first settlers. This was derived from the creeks and brooks forming like a large pocket that envelopes the place. “Bolsa” is an Ilocano word which means “pocket”.

The first settlers to arrive were the Sabrosas, Laurentes, Agustins, Daclans, Flor Blancos, Evangelistas, Concepcions, Butardos and Baguindocs. All came from far as north as Paoay in Ilocos Norte sailing in large boats called paraws along the northern Luzon shoreline of the China Sea, a paraw to a family. They landed somewhere at Sual, Pangasinan where they traded their paraws and other belongings for carts and carabaos for their inland trip southward. On reaching Camiling, they rested for some time with relatives who left Paoay earlier before they did, then moved eastward towards Paniqui and upon crossing Tarlac river and the smaller Sta. Ines River, they were attracted to the wide tracts of virgin land which they surmised can be adapted to agricultural development. The Sabrosa clan was the first to select a place to stay and after crossing a winding creek, Don Procopio Evangelista, the leader of the group also selected the site where to begin a new life with his family. The rest in the group travelled some more where Don Segundo Flor Blanco decided to stay with his family. The others then began spreading, selecting their own sites. Because of its winding creeks and brooks, they called the place “MIBOLSA”

HISTORY OF BARANGAY CASILI

 

In the year nineteen hundred, Anao was still a barrio of Paniqui. When Anao become a town, Casili was born as one of the barrios of this town that was situated in the northernmost part of the municipality. In this barrio, people were fond of using pepper (sili) as their ingredients whenever they cook. And so there came a time that the whole populace planted in their backyards volumes of pepper. Until finally, the barrio folks agreed to name the place CASILIAN and later dropped AN for simplicity.

In the western part of Casili is Sitio Quinabontoc where a big creek is situated from which people get their daily livelihood. Another Sitio of Casili is Billana situated in the northern part. In the eastern side is a plain of hundred hectares of land, which is very fertile. Farmers harvest thousands of cavans of palay, vegetables, sugarcane, tobacco, camote, peanuts and others.

Aside from farming, people are also engaged in weaving mats and hats out of buri palm as home industry, they also make stoves out of clay. The barrio folks are also fond of fishing using bunuan, tabukol, padukdok and patikwas.

The first inhabitants in this place came from Ilocos Region. Among the first settlers were the Baguisi’s , Fernandez’, Bautista’s, Caculitan’s and Macaraeg’s. They were headed by the Teniente del Barrio who was elected not by votes but by wealth, education, and physique. The hardworking and religious people lived in a very simple way.

Today, Casili is poised for enormous progress because of the people’s industry and cooperation. Bayanihan is still practiced to this day that makes the place stand out among other barangays in the municipality.

KASAYSAYAN NG BARANGAY BANTOG

Ang Bantog ay nagmula sa salitang Ilocano na ang ibig sabihin ay mataas dahil ang lugar na ito ay mataas at hindi nababaha. Ito rin ay nagmula sa salitang tagalog na ang ibig sabihin ay sikat o tanyag.

Ayon sa mga naunang tao na tumira sa lugar na ito, ang Bantog ay nadikubre noong 1870 subalit naging ganap na baryo noong 1900.

Ang lugar na ito ay matatagpuan sa dulong hilaga na bayan ng Anao at itinuturing na pinakamalayong baryo nito. Mayroon itong 705,824 metro kwadrado at sa kasalukuyan ay may 599 populasyon.

Ang mga unang tao na tumira dito ay pinangunahan nina Venancio Aban, Lucio Ramos, Miguel Gallardo, Leodigario Peralta, Emiterio Gallardo, Luis Alavazo, Hospicio Ramos, at Mariano Alavazo.

Sa kasaysayan ng baryong ito, nagkaroon din ng mga taong nagbigay ng bahagi ng kanilang serbisyo tulad nina Leodigario Peralta bilang unang Tinyente del barrio, Dionisia Aguyaoy bilang unang guro, Arcadio Aban bilang unang konsehal ng bayan at Pedro Alavazo bilang unang kapitan del barrio.

Ang pangunahing uri ng salita na namamayani ay Ilocano at Tagalog.

HISTORY OF BARANGAY CARMEN

(FORWORD: The member of the Sangguniang Barangay of Dona Carmen, Anao, Tarlac wish to extend their profound thanks and gratitude to Atty. Marcelino E. Tolentino for his invaluable assistance in the preparation of the history of our barangay. It will be recalled that it was he who researched and compiled the history of our town which he entitled “A CHRONICLE OF ANAO”. This historical paper is the only reference book on the history of Anao.)

At the Tarlac-Nueva Ecija boundary lies a barangay which is known by its very polite and endearing name DOÑA CARMEN. Its dog-leg configuration is due to the fact that it was carved from the Pre-World War II political unit POBLACION, of which it was then an integral part. In the creation of this barangay as a unit of government, the provincial road which passes through the town eastward to Nampicuan, Nueva Ecija was made its northern territorial boundary, thus its dog-leg configuration. Gomez Street on the west and become its western boundary between Don Ramon and Dona Carmen.

During the administration of the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos, he laid emphasis on community development. To take charge of this task, he created the Presidential Assistance on Community Development (PACD) to which he assigned Manong Ernie Maceda, later to become senator, as the head. To avail of this opportunity to the maximum, the then Municipal Council created additional barrios out of those already existing. Sitios already were likewise converted to barrios all of which were denominated as barangays.

BARANGAY DONA CARMEN was one of the created barangays and it was named in honor of that lovable and kind lady who owned HACIENDA ONGSIAKO, the late-lamented DONA CARMEN ONGSIAKO. The creation of Barangay Dona Carmen took place during the administration of the late Mayor Lt. Col. Catalino O. Cruz. (Ret.). He becomes the Mayor of the town in 1964 while the late Vicente L. Dizo, Sr., who was then succeeded by the late Hilario Velasco, served as Barrio Lieutenants.

In 1984, the late Barangay Captain Patrocinio Sadangsal welcomed three Indonesian fellows to Barangay Dona Carmen to personally conduct their researches on April and May for the completion of their doctorate degree under auspices of the United Nation University Nutrition Center of the Philippines (UNUNCP). Upon the completion of their research, the United Nation University Nutrition Center of the Philippines awarded Katibayan ng Pagpapahalaga to some residents of the barangay for their invaluable assistance as resource persons.

In 1988, an election for provincial and municipal level took place and the same year was the election for the barangay level. At that time, a candidate who garnered the highest vote will automatically become the Barangay Captain and luckily Hermes Dizo got the highest vote. (1988-1994). It was at this time that the 65% of the barangay roads were cemented through the leadership and initiative of congressman Peping Cojuangco, Governor Ting-ting Cojuangco and Mayor Clemente T. Apuan. Some units of street lights had been installed; the Velasco road and Antonio road were fully opened. Barangay fiestas for those years were celebrated during the month of December with muses for every purok as the highlight for the event.

In 1994, Barangay Captain Patrocinio Sadangsal once again won in the election race. Additional 25% of the barangay roads were cemented, the Barangay Hall and the Barangay Plaza were erected, and additional street lights were installed. It was during this period that the Barangay Fiesta was officially celebrated on the 16th of July, instead of celebrating it on December, in honor of the birthdate of the late Dona Carmen Ongsiako.

Activities such as the Medical-Dental Civic Action and the Libreng Gamutan – Libreng Gamot, the first one ever in the barangay was arranged by Barangay Kagawad Gertrudes D. Tolentino, Chairman, Committee on Health & Social Services and with assistance of the other Kagawads. Dr. Araceli T. Estrada and Dr. Amelia T. Bulseco, both Resident Physicians of Quezon City Medical Center were able to solicit medicines worth P20,000.00 from the different pharmaceutical companies. Dr. Abraham Abella of San Manuel, Tarlac attented to the patients needing dental service. Anao RHU Personnel and Barangay Health Workers also attended.

In 1997, Rodel Montero emerged as the new Barangay Chairman. It was during his time that the Day Care Center and at least 40% of the drainage system were constructed while the barangay nursery has been improved. Moreover, the Lingap sa Mamamayan Program of the DSWD was launched wherein 20 recipients have been benefited for the Pabahay worth P10,000.00 each. The SEA-K was also given to the barangay as an initial capital to the recipients without interest and also a P2,000.00 worth of construction materials for the assessed needy barangay constituents. The 20 recipients for the Lingap sa Mamamayan were also enjoying and benefiting the quarterly interest of their capital money accorded them by Mayor Rodolfo F. Guerrero in the amount of P1,000.00 which is now more or less P25,000.00 cash in bank. Dr. Amelia T. Bulseco also donated one unit waiting shed erected at the corner of V. Dizo St. and the Provincial Road.

In 2002, BC Montero once again won in the barangay elections. With the untiring and continuous support of his Barangay Council, Barangay Tanod, Barangay Health Workers, Day Care and barangay constituents, Barangay Dona Carmen is now at his frontline of becoming the most progressive barangay of the town as we see the industrial capability – the Gem & John Steel Center and Construction Supply, the Salvador Funeral Parlor and the Lacamento Gas Filling Station. Brgy. Dona Carmen was a CIDSS pilot barangay.

HISTORY OF BARANGAY DON RAMON

The name Don Ramon comes from the late Don Ramon Ongsiako, owner of Hacienda Ongsiako, from which the barangay is a part of it. During the administration of the late President Ferdinand Marcos, he created the Presidential Assistance in Community Development (PACD). It shall be responsible for the development of countryside communities. The thrust was direct financial assistance to every barangay. Perhaps to avail of this assistance to the fullest, the municipal council created additional barangays, out of the already existing Barangays. Hence, in 1969, two new barangays were created, removed from Brgy. Poblacion, the origin, and were named Brgy. Doña Carmen and Brgy. Don Ramon, derived from the given name of the spouses and owners of Hacienda Ongsiako. The mayor then was the late Catalino Cruz.

The early settlers were families of Accad, Aliado, Fernandez, Cuaresma, Tuvera, Benavidez, Santiago, Conde, Cabralda, Daduyo, Galindez and Felipe. They were later joined by the families from kapataan a small barrio in the southern part of the hacienda. Due to frequent floodings in the area, these families had decided to transfer and settled to what is now, Brgy. Don Ramon.

The 1st Brgy. Captain of Don Ramon was the late Jose Garcia who served up to 1983, followed by Eddie Gines (1983-1986), then Jesus Cabuntocan (1986-1994), succeeded by Eusebio Cuaresma (1994-1997), and Felipe De Vera (1997-2002). At present, the barangay council of Don Ramon is headed by Barangay Chairman Rafael Jacinto.

The Barangay celebrates its fiesta every 31st day of August, in honor of their patron Saint Raymund Nonnatus.

HISTORY OF BARANGAY RIZAL

The name Rizal was derived from the Great National Hero, Dr. Jose Protacio Rizal Y Realonda.

During the administration of the late President Ferdinand Edralin Marcos, he put into law the Presidential Assistance in Community Development (PACD) which was responsible for the development of countryside communities. Its objective is to give financial assistance to every barangay. To avail of this assistance, the Municipal Council created Eighteen (18) barangays. This was under the administration of the late Mayor Catalino O. Cruz in the year 1968.

The early settlers were the families of Dela Cruz, Santiago, Rala, Laglagura, Fernandez, Fermantez, Lacamento, Conde, Labagnoy, Guerrero, Taroma, Baybado, Guttierez, and Cardona.

The first Barangay Captain of Rizal was the late Timoteo Rala followed by Rufo Dela Cruz, then Emeterio Dela Cruz, succeeded by the late Teodoro Ignacio, then Ferdinand C. Dela Cruz.

The people of the barangay are engaged in agriculture as their principal means of livelihood with rice, corn and mango as their principal crops. During the dry season, the people plant vegetables in their backyard. For additional income, they are engaged in the production of poultry and swine, goats and cows in their backyards. They fish in the rice puddies and in nearby streams.

Barangay Rizal lies at the northern part of Poblacion. It has an area of 138,998 hectares more or less and a total population of 758 as per Census of 2002. The barangay celebrates its fiesta every 30th day of December in commemoration of the death of our national hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal.

HISTORY OF BARANGAY POBLACION

It will be recalled that per researchers made by Atty. Marcelino E. Tolentino in his “A Chronicle of Anao”, the early settlers came from Camiling were the families of Gregorio Concepcion, Cosme Capurian, Fruto Pastor and Bruno Evangelista. These families settled at the place which we now call Barangay San Jose. However, due to the recurrent flooding of the area, they decide to transfer to higher grounds. They moved further east and settled to what is now called the center of the town. Other families arrived and who settled in the same place were the Javiers, the Blancos, the Butardos, and the Baguindocs. These families came from Paoay, Ilocos Norte to seek adventures.

As more and more families arrived, the settlement grew and radiated around the central hub. In time, this central hub of the new town was referred to as Poblacion, showing the influence of the Spanish Language. Indeed, the central section of any new town is always referred to as “Poblacion”. Nowadays, we refer it as “Kabayanan”, a Filipino word.

On November 17, 1897, Spanish troops stationed at Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija, under the command of Lt. Espejo, raided the town. They were engaged in combat by Filipino farmers under Laureano Padua. The encounter took place at what is now our public plaza. This indomitable spirit of our Filipino defenders bowed down to sheer superiority in number and arms of the raiding force.

Anao, was still a barrio of Paniqui. On March 16, 1870 Anao became a municipality.

From as far back on the previous era, the head of the town was called Capitan Municipal. The first Captain Municipal of Anao was Don Fruto Pastor. There was no municipal building at that time so that the house of Mr. Juan Baguisi, Sr. served as the temporary Municipal Building. In those days, too, the head of the barrio was called teniente del barrio. Among the post war head of Poblacion was Mr. Marcelino E. Tolentino. He was succeeded by the late Mr. Juan F. Tolentino, his father, and later by Mr. Francisco Concepcion. The honoraria of the teniente del barrio at that time was only twenty pesos (P20.00) a month.

In the early part of 1956, the Municipal Building which was a pre-war construction was renovated. The old building was constructed of lumber with “sawali” walls at the upper floor. The officers of the Municipal Government were temporarily transferred to the house of the late Mr. Juan Tolentino. This house stood across the street from what is now the Roman Catholic Church.

As the time went on, the families began to flourish and more buildings were erected, like the Elementary School Buildings, the Aglipayan Churches on the western and eastern side of the Municipal Building, the foundations of the People’s Academy accommodated in the house of Mr. Juan Tolentino, the Founding of the Anao Barangay High School, now named Anao High School at the eastern side of the Public Plaza, the construction of the Puericulture Center at the back of the Municipal Building undertaken by the Anao Women’s Club and the Puericulture Center Club, and the construction of an open-air multi-purpose center at the western side of the Municipal Building.

Our Municipal Officials, past and present, have endeavored to make our municipality progressive, no matter how small it is. More buildings were erected in Poblacion, in the municipal compound. We have the Public Market constructed at the back of the Municipal Building. The Bulwagan Natin, the Covered Court in front of the Municipal Building, the Police Headquarters, constructed at the eastern side of the Public Plaza, the SB Building erected at the eastern side of the Main Building of the Municipal Building. The houses around the Municipal Building which were constructed of bamboos and cogon before the war are now renovated and became concrete and permanent house. An eight-room, two storey apartment was erected at the eastern side of the Municipal Building across the street.

The streets around the Poblacion are brightly lighted with electricity. This was a project of the Barangay Council under Barangay Captain Ernesto Valdez in 1994, and more electric posts were put up last 1995 when Poblacion won the first place in the Provincial level as the Cleanest and Greenest barangay in the province. More improvements are a manifestation of the barangay resident’s cooperation thru the support of the barangay officials headed by Brgy. Capt. Ernesto Valdez.

Brgy. Poblacion is thus, the heart of the town, the cream of the municipality and the show window of the town of Anao.

HISTORY OF BARANGAY SAN FRANCISCO EAST

At dawn of December 14, 1896, he was marched to Bagumbayan field where he was shot by a firing squad of Filipino fusiliers…16 days before our National Hero; Dr. Jose Rizal met the same fate on December 30, 1896 at the same hallowed grounds. Aside from this brazen fact, San Francisco also served as an escape route of the sublime paralytic, Apolinario Mabini in his escape carried in a hammock to Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija where he was later captured.

Special claim could also be honestly made about where the CAIMITO tree was first grown. After his two stints as Municipal President of Anao (in 1990 by appointment and in 1923-1925 by acclamation, “raising hand”) Don Francisco Flor Blanco retired to his San Francisco farm. Because of his love for fruits, he ordered his seeds from the Philippine Education Company and for curiosity he include in his order a pocket of CAIMITO. Its literature stated this was a tree grown in Africa. Of the tree (3) seeds contained in the pocket, he planted them all in only one hole where only one grew and survived to bear fruits later. When Jose Urquico was the Governor of Tarlac, he and his wife Clara visited Anao very often and he like the CAIMITO which was given him for dessert. He asked to be given seeds to be planted at the provincial nursery at Matatalaib, Tarlac. He also sent the provincial agriculturist to Anao later for more and more seeds. From here, the CAIMITO seedlings were dispersed to all the municipalities of Tarlac. Other provinces also came to the Tarlac Nursery for seedlings. Today, CAIMITO is grown all over the country.

San Francisco has been sub-divided into 4 barangays during the Marcos regime. Before this San Francisco has 3 sitios namely, Cervantes, Caboaan or Cacuchapinan as it was popular called, and Tolega. San Francisco and its sitios were reorganized into four barangays. San Francisco proper was made two (2) barangays, namely San Francisco East and San Francisco West. Sitio Tolega become Barangay Baguindoc and sitio Caboaan become barangay Campos. This in a way has its own advantages because when there is an aid coming for the barangays, more aids/support are given to the people. Another advantage is the government of the barangay is closely knit and can take better care for the welfare of the people. The feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patronal saint of San Francisco – October 4 yearly.

HISTORY OF BARANGAY SAN JOSE NORTH

Barangay San Jose North and San Jose South were formerly merged as one barrio named San Jose Florida which was among the nine (9) old barrios of the municipality of Anao.

In 1968, the municipal council of Anao, Tarlac adopted a resolution creating additional barangays from the eight (8) existing barangays except Poblacion. Thus, San Jose Florida as the former name of the barrio was one of the barrios which were divided into two barangays considering its area of population which warrants the creation of one barangay and this was approved by the Provincial Board of Tarlac Province sometime in August 1968.

Most of the residents of this barangay are Ilocanos. Both barangays are consistent awardees of the Clean and Green Program. Brgy. San Jose got its name in honor of St. Joseph, the foster father of Jesus, as the Catholic religion was then introduced during the Spanish regime.

HISTORY OF BARANGAY SAN ROQUE

Barangay San Roque is one of the 18 barangays of the Municipality of Anao, Tarlac. Brgy. San Roque was named during the Spanish time in honor of Saint Roque. According to the History of Saints, St. Roque was a beggar. He has a dog as his companion in roaming begging alms. He was being harassed by some Spaniards because they accused him of having a relative with a high position in the government, a “Gobernadorcillo”. Hence, the slight cut in his left thigh as we see in his effigy. The feast of Saint Roque is on the 16th of the lean month of August.

Formerly Brgy. San Roque was merged with Brgy. Rizal, but during the administration of the late Mayor Catalino Cruz in the year 1969, these two barangays were splitted since these barangays met all the requirements to become an independent barangay.

Barangay San Roque was ruled by the following persons: a) First Barrio Captain – the late Pablo Dancel (1963-1972), b) the late Albino Diego (1972-1982), c) Barangay Chairman Pacifico Bernal (1989-1992), d) Brgy. Captain Arturo Labagnoy (1994-1997), e) Brgy. Captain Rafael Naral (1997-2007) and f) at present Brgy. Captain Godofredo Grande.

The livelihood of the residents comes mostly from farming and fishing, only few are professionals, while others are laborers and OFW’s. The main products of the inhabitants are rice, corn, mangoes and vegetables. The most important is that although Barangay San Roque is just a small barangay, they are consistent recipients of awards through Clean and Green programs, sports and talent awards under the auspices of the incumbent Barangay Captain Godofredo Grande.

HISTORY OF BARANGAY SINESE

Under the administration of erstwhile President Ferdinand E. Marcos, there was a surge in the creation of new barangays. Thus, the Municipal Government of Anao in 19667 passed an ordinance creating nine (9) new barangays that included Barangay Sinense.

Barangay Sinense was formerly a sitio of Barangay Casili which was one of the nine (9) existing barangays of Anao during the said era. It was earlier known as Sitio Villana. Sitio Villana officially became a barangay in August 1968.

Barangay Sinense assumed its name after Mr. Raymundo Sinense, past Municipal President of Anao who served from 1916 to 1918. Back then, the local chief executive of the municipality was called by such title as a result of the alterations made by the Americans in the nomenclature of the head of the municipality.

In 1969, Mr. Jose D. Labagnoy became the first duly elected barrio lieutenant and went on to become one of the most enduring barangay officials, having served the municipality for four decades. He was later elected President of the Association of the Barangay Councils and consequently became an ex-officio member of the Municipal Council of Anao under the administration of Mayor Clemente T. Apuan.

Although considered one of the far-flung barangays of the town, it has since become one of the barangays to reckon with. It has garnered a significant number of accolades and recognitions, winning awards in various municipal-and provincial-wide Clean and Green competitions and in other areas as well.

Barangay Sinense has recently been adjudged as a Child-Friendly Barangay in the provincial and regional level thru the able leadership of Barangay Captain Florencio Carreon.

HISTORY OF BARANGAY SAN JUAN

Barangay San Juan stands as one of the barangay of the municipality of Anao when Anao became a town on March 16, 1870, which was formerly a sitio of Paniqui, Tarlac. Barangay San Juan is bounded by Barangays Poblacion and Rizal on the east, Barangay Rizal on the North, a part of Barangay Hernando on the west and a portion of Barangay Sto. Domingo on the south. It is surrounded with full grown ylang-ylang trees that add to the greenery of the place.

The agricultural land is 40,185 sq.m., residential is 717,128 sq.m., thus a total land area of 757,303 sq.m. Old folks say that Barangay San Juan was abundantly planted with different plants and trees. Among which are banana trees which were of various varieties such as “aritundal, dippig, tumoc, lacatan, granate, balayan and “san Juan” was the most abundant. Most of the residents of this barangay are engaged in farming. They produce palay, sugarcane, and corn. They also have plantations like mango, bananas and many fruit bearing trees while vegetables of different varieties are abundant in the area. Some farmers have their own fish ponds or “bunwan”. Barangay San Juan was then one of the pilot barangays granted with a livelihood project particularly piggery, sponsored by the Nutrition Center of the Philippines way back 1983. It started with three (3) sows with pigpen and this project has proved beneficial as it augments the family income of some family recipients of the piglet dispersal. Other livelihood projects such as goat and poultry raising, crocheting, food processing/preserving, have added income for the family. As per records and survey, Barangay San Juan has the most number of Professionals, besides most of them are all successful in their profession. Others are men of proficient skills such as dressmakers, carpenters, businessmen, and store owners.

The Botika ng Barangay managed by a barangay health worker, serves for the faster delivery/procurement of medicine for patient or for first aid application. The farm to market roads were already concreted.

HISTORY OF BARANGAY STO. DOMINGO

Barangay Sto. Domingo is one of the 18 barangays of the progressive municipality of Anao. It is located along the Provincial Road; more or less 5 to 6 kilometers away from the Mc. Arthur Highway. It covers a land area of 51,670 sq.m. It has a population of 371 with a total of 68 households based on the 2002 census. The primary means of livelihood is farming. Fifteen percent (15%) of its constituents comprises the white-collar job workers. Some are engaged in small-scale business like sari-sari store. Additional income is derived from backyard piggery/poultry raising. It is bounded on the north by Brgy. Hernando, in the south by Cadaanan ricefields, in the east by Brgy. Don Ramon and in the west by Brgy. San Jose South. Anao is originally composed of nine (9) old barrios, one of which is Sto. Domingo. By virtue of Municipal Council Resolution, duly approved by the Provincial Board of Tarlac, Sto. Domingo became an independent and separate barrio in 1968. The first settlers to arrive in barrio Sto. Domingo were those coming from Paoay, Ilocos Norte, perhaps, the reason why residents of the barrio are almost Ilocanos.

According to Senior Citizens of Brgy. Sto. Domingo as well as old folks from other barangays or adjacent barangays, Sto. Domingo is derived from the name of St. Dominic, the first saint whom the old Aglipayan folks of the barrio recognized.

VISION: Barangay Sto. Domingo as a progressive barangay of empowered people who shall be the vital forces in building a “Clean and Green Barangay”. MISSION: To provide basic services to its constituents towards a healthy and better living conditions.
