Valencia City Celebrates Dental Heart Month
The City Government of Valencia successfully spearheaded a fundraising activity and free mass wedding in celebration of Philippine Heart Month.
Starting at the second week of February the City Government organized the Feb-Ibig Fundraising Activity with the theme “Gugma para kay Lolo ug Lola.”
The undertaking aims to raise fund by offering services and selling of goods or gift items to employees and customers.

Valencia City is known for its active participation on projects that aimed to raise funds for its chosen beneficiaries. Last year, the local government launched the first ever “Share and Give Love” which aimed to give and distribute oral hygiene kits to the kids from different schools in the city.
Meanwhile, a total of 47 couples exchanged vows and proudly displayed their love during the free mass wedding ceremony held at the City Hall Covered Court and Barangay Dagatkidavao on Valentine’s Day.
The city government headed by Mayor Azucena P. Huervas together with the Civil Registrar’s Office headed by Ms. Teresita B. Dicen, successfully conducted the free mass wedding ceremony.
Mayor Huervas said that marriage is important as it represents a relationship with God. She also encouraged the couples to always say I love you to each other.
The mass wedding is also one of the highlights during the observance of the Civil Registration Month Celebration which is based on Presidential Proclamation No. 682 issued by President Corazon C. Aquino.
The said month-long celebration is celebrated to remind the citizenry of their duty to register acts and events concerning status of persons and enhance nationwide awareness and appreciation of the legal, administrative and statistical values of the civil registry documents.
