With the theme, "Kagitingan ng mga Beterano, Inspirasyon ng Nagkakaisang Pilipino", the LGU conducted a flag raising ceremony as a tribute to this historic day which honors the brave Filipino veterans and soldiers of World War II who fought for our freedom. This undertaking also served as an opportunity to remember the sacrifices of the frontliners and public servants in times of disruptions.
"Heroism doesn't only mean fighting with weapons in a battle, it also a manner of competently fulfilling the duties and responsibilities of a public servant. Through this, I consider all of us as heroes as together, we have resiliently overcome the challenges during this pandemic and during other disasters" expressed by Mayor Alfonso F. Celeste.
May this celebration of courage serve as inspiration to continue our zealness and nationalism. May this day become a reminder to value our significant history.
