AUGUST 24 was declared as an official non-working holiday for the City of Davao.
Proclamation order 1087 series of 2015, signed by President Benigno Aquino III last July 24, 2015, declared August 24, 2015 as a special holiday for the Araw ng Pasasalamat, a part of the week-long celebration of the Kadayawan Festival.
The proclamation was signed to allow the people of Davao City to be given full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies.
Councilor Al Ryan Alejandre said last week that the City Council had asked for that said special non-working holiday from the President. (KVC)
