BAGUIO CITY February – Baguio City, as we all know is a city where tourists from around the world come and visit to appreciate not only its cool breeze but also its majestic scenery.
Albert Gatchalian Go a retired American citizen, decided to show his outmost love for Baguio by lending his effort to make a cleaner city and raise awareness among all for the same.
He was seen cleaning wright park, the mansion and Burnham Park carrying his own leaf blower.
“I do this, to raise awareness, and it makes me feel good about myself.” He said.
Joseph C. Hermogeno, who is the project evaluation officer in the Burnham Park Office saw him last December 2015 leaf blowing the sidewalks of Burnham Park. He mentioned that Sir Albert has volunteered and has done this often and it is really an encouragement not only for the city employees but for the residents in Baguio City.
Albert said he would still volunteer until he goes back to the States this coming March. He said that all he wanted to do was to keep the city clean and raise public awareness that a clean city can be built together for the purpose of a better life for everyone.
