CITY OF MALOLOS - To refresh the minds of every Bulakenyo of their origin and bring back the memories of how the province reached the progress it now possesses, the Provincial Government of Bulacan will observe the 436th founding anniversary of the province on August 15, 2014 at 7:30 A.M. in front of the Provincial Capitol Building.

Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado said that while moving forward, it is necessary to take a glimpse of the past from time to time to know where it’s heading and check if it’s the right track.

“Ang pagbabalik-tanaw sa nakaraan ay hindi pag-aaksaya ng oras. Ito ay paninigurado na ‘yung dahilan kung bakit tayo nabuo, ‘yung dahilan kung paano natin narating kung nasaan man tayo ngayon ay malinaw sa atin, sa gano’ng paraan hindi tayo maliligaw. Ito ay makatutulong din sa pagpapaalala sa atin ng ating mga responsibilidad bilang isang nagkakaisang mamamayan na nagmula sa dakilang lahi ng mga Bulakenyo,” Alvarado said.

The short program will begin with a holy mass at 7:00 in the morning to be followed by the wreath laying ceremony at Gen. Gregorio Del Pilar’s monument by Alvarado, Vice Gov. Daniel Fernando and the members of Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

Also, the celebration marks the opening of Singkaban Festival with the theme “Arkong Kawayan, Sagisag ng Sining at Kalinangan ng Bulacan”.

According to The New Provincial Administrative Code of Bulacan, Chapter II, Section 14, the date August 15 of every year is declared as the Bulacan Foundation Day and a special non-working holiday as stated in Section 27, The Provincial Legal Holidays. ###
