The E. B. Magalona municipal government, led by Mayor Marvin Malacon, recently implemented various projects to refurbish the Cementerio de Saravia, in time for the Undas or All Saints’ Day on Nov. 1 and All Souls’ Day on Nov. 2.
The Cementerio de Saravia, also known as the E. B. Magalona Public Cemetery, is located behind the E. B. Magalona Catholic Cemetery.
Among the improvements at the public cemetery are a newly constructed 55-meter main road, nine newly installed solar-powered lamp posts, newly constructed “Katilingban” where families and loved ones can light candles for their dead whose tombs are no longer around; nine newly installed closed circuit television cameras, five newly installed canopies, two comfort rooms (for male and female) and newly painted gate and plant boxes.
Meanwhile, the municipal government posted an advisory yesterday limiting the visiting hours at the public cemetery from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. only, from October 28 to November 3.*
