Municipal Mayor Antonio L. Raymundo Jr. and Local Civil Registrar Cristina A. De Jesus mounted the event to bring social service to unmarried couples who were hesitant to wed because of financial constraints.

“Sa mga nagsasama at may mga anak na – at ngayon ay kasali sa Kasalang Bayan na ito, maari na kayong makipag-ugnayan sa Local Civil Registry Office para maging lehitimo ang inyong mga anak. Ito ay ayon sa Legitimation through Subsequent Marriage”, Mr. Bruno ended his speech. Mr. Bruno was joined by another PSA staff Maria Anna Encarnacion as guest during the event.
