DINALUPIHAN, Bataan – Mayor Gila S. Garcia has set every Wednesday as exclusive wedding day. Hence, she appeals to those planning to tie the knot to follow the scheduled day so as to save time.
“Itinakda talaga ni Mayora Gila ang Miyerkules na araw ng kasal para malaman din ng mga nagbabalak pakasal na may isang araw sa isang linggo na itinakda para sa kanilang special day,” pointed out Rolly Rojas, municipal administrator.
However, the wedding day can be scheduled to the following day if a Wednesday falls on a holiday or the town chief executive has other important matters to attend to, added Rojas.
Over in the coastal town of Orani, part of Mayor Benjie Serrano’s program for the needy and underprivileged is providing financial assistance to single mothers in this town.
Mayor Serrano said that this program has been implemented ever since he became mayor, saying “they (single mothers) need our help since they are also victims of neglect.”
In addition to financial assistance, single mothers are also given priority on health programs and livelihood projects to enable them to rise from their lamentable situation.
