Tagum City (30 October) -- Due to its seasonal necessity, public cemeteries in the Philippines are the most neglected social services of our country.
Spare it from the rest; with organized niches and impressive landscape, Tagum's public cemetery, which is situated in Barangay La Filipina, is today's finest public cemetery.
"We give legacy even to the departed, we still care for them even if they now rest in peace," says Mayor Rey T. Uy during the recent ocular inspection of the site.
Fully recommended by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Tagum City is the best destination for study tour on public cemetery management and rehabilitation.
