CITY OF MALOLOS - As a tribute to the late Gat Blas F. Ople, Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado and Vice Gov. Daniel R. Fernando signed the Provincial Resolution No. 048-T’18 which names the newly-constructed Livelihood Training Center of the province as Gat Blas F. Ople Sentro ng Kabataan, Kaalaman at Hanapbuhay during the celebration of Ople’s 91st Birth Anniversary held in front of the Provincial Capitol building in this city today.

In addition, Alvarado announced that the Provincial Library will soon have a specific section wherein the works of Ople will be displayed to serve as an inspiration to the Bulakenyo youth especially the students who frequent the library.

“Sa dinami-dami ng mga naiambag niya upang maiangat ang antas ng buhay ng mga karaniwang Pilipino at mapatibay ang haligi ng demokrasya, ang pinakamahusay at pinakamabuti marahil na karangalang ating maigagawad sa kanya ay sa pamamagitan ng pagpapahalaga sa kanyang pinunla para sa ikabubuti ng inang bayan at kagalingan ng ating mga mamamayan,” Alvarado said.

As a response, Board Member Felix Ople of the 1st District of Bulacan and son of Ka Blas Ople thanked the Provincial Government of Bulacan for once again giving honor to his father by annually celebrating his birthday.

“Sana po panatilihin nating buhay ang kanyang alaala. Sana po ay patuloy siyang maging inspirasyon sa ating mga kabataan na maaari pala na ang isang taga-barrio, pumalaot sa Maynila, ginamit ang sariling pagpupursige upang makamit ang kanyang mga pangarap at ginamit na paraan ito para sa kapakanan ng kanyang mga kababayan,” Board Member Ople said.

For her part, Senator Cynthia Villar, the guest of honor, believes that the talent and intelligence of Filipinos could be used to uplift the economy and to support the interests of the Overseas Filipino Workers.

“Panahon na upang makilala ang Pilipinas bilang front runner sa industriya ng turismo at agrikultura. Iyan ang pangarap para sa atin ni Ka Blas F. Ople at iyan din ang pangarap nating lahat,” the lady senator said.

The 91st Birth Anniversary of Gat Blas F. Ople which was anchored on the theme, “Gat. Blas F. Ople: Dakilang Lingkod Bayan, Inspirasyon ng Mamamayan” was attended by thousands of Bulakenyos from different sectors such as education, agriculture, senior citizens and many more.
