The heavy rains did not stop the Provincial Government of La Union (PGLU) from holding its Monthly First Monday Flag Raising Program on July 7, 2014 as it used the Diego Silang Hall of the Provincial Capitol Building instead of the Capitol Grounds. The program centered on Disaster Preparedness as July is dubbed as Disaster Preparedness Month.

Dir. Melchito M. Castro, Regional Director of the Office of Civil Defense Field Office 1 (under the Department of National Defense) served as the event’s Guest of Honor and Speaker. In his speech, Castro reminded that the Province of La Union among the provinces in the country that are on their susceptible to natural disasters. He said that Landslides, Floods, and Tsunamis are possible in the province since it is a perfect mixture of Mountainous and Coastal Terrains. Earthquakes, according to Director Castro, are also possible in the province for some faults in the northern region passes by La Union.

The officers and members of the La Union Council for Language and Culture (LUCLC) once again manifested their enthusiasm as they reviewed and enriched the proposed Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) Ordinance No. 026-2012 or the “La Union Iloko Code.” It establishes Iloko as an official Provincial Language of La Union and institutionalizing its use in relevant sectors, alongside existing National and Official Languages.

During the 1st meeting for 2014 of LUCLC held last July 9 at the Speaker Pro-Tempore Francisco I. Ortega Legislative Building SP Conference Room, each of the participants actively shared their views and ideas on how to enhance the provisions of the IRR in order to commensurate with its aim of preserving the Iloko language. It was presided by Ms. Fatima R. Boado, CESO IV, Superintendent of the City of San Fernando Schools Division.

True to its vision to be “a haven for a much improved quality of life,” the Province of La Union lays out its projects and activities that aim to uphold the well-being of its people, especially those in the grassroots.

In the observance of the 40th Nutrition Month this July 2014, the Provincial Nutrition Committee (PNC) headed by Gov. Manuel C. Ortega has set a month-long series of activities that promote health and nutrition among children belonging to low-income families.

Now on its second year, “Intayon Sadiay Barrio” is a community service program that brings basic nutrition services closer to the people. Starting July 14, the PNC members will go to different barangays in the 19 municipalities to cater to the nutrition needs of undernourished preschool kids and their families.
