Calapan Mayor Arnan Panaligan’s narra tree is flourishing


Seeing a tree you’ve planted grown and flourish is a satisfying thing.

Calapan Mayor Arnan Panaligan was happy to learn that a narra tree he planted in 2002 is alive and sturdy.

In a Facebook post, Panaligan said he panted the tree during the blessing of the Parang National High School, which was constructed in 1999 during his first term as city mayor.

He shared a photo of him taken beside the tree, which has grown tall and could now provide some shade.

He thanked the teachers and students of Parang National High School for taking care of the narra.

The tree has flourished along with his political career!

“I am happy to see that after almost 19 years, the narra tree that I planted in 2002 during the blessing of the 2 storey Parang National High School building shown in the background that the City Government constructed has survived and grown. Ang Parang National High School ay itinatag noong 1999 sa unang panunungkulan ko bilang City Mayor. Maraming salamat sa mga naging guro at mag-aaral ng Parang National High School sa kanilang pangangalaga sa puno ng narra na aking itinanim noong 2002. – City Mayor Arnan C. Panaligan,” Panaligan posted.
