It is a collective decision of all of us in the municipal government of Bocaue in celebration of the lives of our senior citizens’” Tugna told media men. 

The senior citizen is among the top priority sector beneficiaries of health and social welfare programs of Mayor Eduardo Villanueva and Tugna and all the municipal council members.
