MABUHAY ANG BAGONG KASAL!
This Valentine’s Day, we witnessed an unbreakable union between 68 indigent couples in the City of San Fernando.
Mayor Hermenegildo “Dong” Gualberto along with Vice Mayor Alfredo “Alf” Ortega officiated the civil wedding held at the Ortega Gym last February 14, 2018. Mayor Dong encouraged the couples that love should be a 100% commitment. “Daytuy sirsiriken yu tatta nga aldaw, tatta nga malem, (this phase in your life that you are entering this day) it’s a lifetime commitment. Awan iti binnabawi.”(There is no turning back.)
