Bacolod City will celebrate New Year’s Eve with a party that will be capped by a grand fireworks display at the Bacolod City Government Center grounds from 6 p.m. to 12 midnight of Saturday, Dec. 31.
BRIDGING THE KIDS. Mayor Evelio Leonardia, Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran, Councilor Em Ang, who facilitated the project, Councilor Bart Orola, and Barangay Handumanan officials cut the ribbon at the inauguration of the newly built 72-foot steel footbridge at Zone 6 in Barangay Handumanan yesterday. The P900,000 steel bridge connects Zone 6 of Brgy. Handumanan and Purok Villa Maria of Barangay Mansilingan, which is a big help to schoolchildren of the said areas in going to Handumanan Elementary School and Handumanan National High School, as they no longer have to get wet in crossing the river. “A small project as it may be, this bridge immensely improves the situation of the children in Mansilingan and Handumanan, making their morning walk to school safer and easier,” Ang, who authored two resolutions for the construction of the footbridge, said.*(City PIO photos)
