DINALUPIHAN, Bataan – Municipal Mayor Maria Angela S. Garcia this morning led the blessing and formal opening of the newly constructed barangay hall and health center in Barangay Naparing here.
The event which coincided with Garcia’s “barangay day” was attended by Sangguniang Bayan members, women’s group, senior citizens and village officials led by Punong Barangay Herminio Mangubat, municipal employees and local journalists.
Garcia said the P2.3 million, two storey village hall is a project of Bataan 1st District Congresswoman Geraldine B. Roman. Dr. Boyet Castañeda, Roman’s district office manager, represented the lawmaker in the event.
Meanwhile, the health center worth P2.5 million came from the municipal government’s bottom up budgeting (BUB) funds.
The old barangay hall which was built from the provincial government’s funds will be converted into a senior citizens hall.
