DILG Pampanga sowed anew its commitment of being stewards of the environment during the Arbor Day celebration of the municipality of Lubao on July 4, 2018.
Together with various national government agencies and offices in the municipality, the participants planted 320 fire tree seedlings along the 500-meter stretch of the Porac-Gumain River Dike, Sta. Catalina, Lubao.
Lubao Mayor Mylyn P. Cayabyab thanked everyone who took part and stressed on the importance of preserving the environment in the midst of development and industrialization for the benefit of the future generations.
"Yung kapaligiran, atin ito, kaya kailangan natin itong pangalagaan. 'Yung pagmamalasakit natin ngayon, ang makikinabang dito ay tayong lahat. Hindi lang ito dahil may utos, ito ay dahil responsibilidad natin ito sa ating mga anak at sa susunod pang henerasyon", Mayor Cayabyab said.
