Local officials here have banded together to lead in the commemoration of the 20th anniversary of Pinatubo volcano’s eruption in June, this year.
Governor Lilia Pineda will lead other local chief executives in the provinces in the observation of Pinatubo eruption which for years drastically affected the lives of the Kapampangans.
Together with Mayors Oscar S. Rodriguez of the City of San Fernando and Edgardo Pamintuan of Angeles City, Jerry Pelayo of Candaba and members of the Center for Kapampangan Studies (CKS) and the business sector, they recently convened the steering committee in charge of the commemoration.
The committee was formed when Pineda issued EO 03, series of 2011, at the heels of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan passing Resolution No. 2097, declaring June 15-21, 2011 as “ika-20 anibersaryo ng Pagputok ng Bulkang Pinatubo.”
