CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- The Provincial Board on Wednesday urged various Kapampangan groups in the United Stated of America to be united to further advance the interest of the province.
Jess Española, a representative of the USA Pampanga Day Celebration Commission, visited the Board Members on Wednesday.
Senior Board Member Cris Garbo, acting as presiding officer, welcomed Española during session.
Garbo told the latter that the Provincial Government is thankful as their group in USA has successfully celebrated the founding anniversary of the province of Pampanga last year.
However, the board member noted that instead of only one celebration, the delegation of the Provincial Government attended two different occasions both for the Pampanga Day Celebration.
Board Member Ricardo Yabut asked Española if there are already talks among the Kapampangan groups abroad to settle down their differences and stand for a common Pampanga Day celebration.
With this, Espanola promised that the concern of the Provincial Board will be taken into consideration.
