brand-new coaster bus for Batac City

Rev. Fr. Melchor Palomares blesses this brand-new coaster bus for Batac City while Batac City Mayor Jeffrey Nalupta (left), Vice Mayor Ronald Allan Nalupta (not seen in photo) and other city officials also join the blessing rites. Congresswoman Imelda Romualdez Marcos (2nd district, Ilocos Norte) personally turned over to Mayor Nalupta the coaster and  the Batac Mothering Center during a simple ceremony held recently. The Mothering Center is one of the many pet projects of the congresswoman. (photo by ryan gamet/cgb)
