SAN JOSE CITY – Seven newly born infants were given “gift tokens” by the city government after they were conceived by their mothers in various hospitals on August 10, the very day that marked the city’s 53rd foundation anniversary.

Calling them the “Lucky Seven City Day Babies”, the father-and-son tandem of City Mayor Mario “Kokoy” Salvador and Vice Mayor Alexis “Ali” Salvador personally awarded the gifts to their parents shortly after their respective births here on Wednesday.

The “Lucky 7 City Day Babies” are Baby Calix Sarmiento, Althea Redd Santiago, Zane Kasper De Leon, Ronleex Fred Marzan, Jamir Infante, John Michael Santos, and Sean Villamar, who were conceived at the Ospital ng Lungsod ng San Jose and other maternity and lying-in-clinics here.

Accompanying the two top city officials in giving out the tokens, which consisted of baby starter kits worth P4,000 (cradle, comforter, net, baby tub, diaper, and wipes) were City Councilor Trixie Salvador, City Population Officer Nathaniel Vergara, and City Civil Registrar Virginia Veneracion.

Aside from the tokens, the babies’ birth registration at the Local Civil Registry Office will also be rendered free, according to the city mayor.
