Mayor Celso Lobregat together with Councilors Myra Paz Valderrosa-Abubakar and Nonong Guingona yesterday took time to join with the people of Barangay Curuan in the east coast as they celebrate the “Dia de Curuan,” now on its 21st year.

In his message, Lobregat urged the barangay officials and residents of Curuan headed by Chairman Noel Perez to stay united in their efforts at keeping Curuan progressive and peaceful, even as he assured them of the city government’s continued support under his administration.

Lobregat, who represents Cong. Edgardo J. Angara in the Board of Regents of the Western Mindanao State University, also pushed for more facilities for the WMSU Extension Unit in Curuan, which is now operating temporarily at Curuan National High School.

“The 20 computers for the WMSU Curuan Extension are coming very soon and we will rehabilitate the Curuan gym compartments to be used as classrooms of the WMSU students here,” Lobregat said.

He also inspected the newly completed three-storey nine-classroom building worth P8.03 million at Curuan NHS which will also be partly used for the WMSU Extension Unit. Right beside the new building is the newly rehabilitated two-storey building in the amount of P1.5 million.

Also attended by barangay officials from nearby villages, the “Dia de Curuan” kicked off a weeklong festivity to culminate on Nov. 13, feast of the barangay’s patron San Estanislao De Kostka.

Other activities include Nov. 5, grand final of amateur singing contest, Nov. 6- San Miguel Beer Night, Nov. 7- Curuan Central School Night, Nov. 8- Ms Bikini Curuan, Nov. 9- Golpe Golpe na Barangay, Nov. 10- 4-Cock Derby, Nov. 11- Mayor and Vice Mayor’s Night, and Nov. 12- Noche de Alegria and Grand Disco.

From Curuan, the mayor and the councilors proceeded to Barangay Buenavista to inspect the ongoing constructions of a barangay hall and a solar dryer accounting to P4.5 million and the site for the construction of a covered court at Buenavista Elementary School. — Vic Larato
