PIA Press Release

Samar observes civil registration month

By Ninfa B Quirante

Catbalogan City (February 6) -- San Jorge LGU will be conducting a mass wedding and mobile registration stints to some clustered barangays in observance of the civil registration month this February.

This was bared by Ms. Florita Barrilleaux, Local Civil Registar (LCR) of San Jorge, Samar in an interview with PIA.

The lady-registrar said that the mass wedding will be officiated by Mayor Nancy Grey on February 18 at the Municipal Hall of San Jorge.

As for mobile registration, she added that some barangays will be clustered to accommodate registrants from the 41 barangays of San Jorge. The mobile registration draws a big crowd because it is free, said.

Aside form the two mentioned activities, San Jorge would also conduct symposium on civil registration awareness in the different high schools in town. This symposium is their preparation for the slated civil registration quiz (provincial level) on February 21, 2008.

Provincial Statistics Officer (PSO) Letecia Chu offered that the Regional civil registration quiz will be held on February 27, at the Sabin Resort Hotel in Ormoc City.

NSO Administrator and Civil Registrar General will be then the Guest of Honor.

Chu added that the reigning champion of the civil registry quiz is Samar.

Meanwhile, as the different LGUs are very busy celebrating through activities like the ones mentioned above, Ms. Chu reiterated her call to the public to be aware of the importance of civil registration.

Aside from San Jorge, Catbalogan City and Pinabacdao, Chu also commended Basey Mayor Wilfredo Estorninos for his support to the cause of civil registration in his area. (PIA-Samar) [top]
