He stressed the importance of getting vaccinated and staying safe during this time.
Rivera also assured that the RCR Foundation will not cease in providing support for the couples, as well as their family members.
The mass wedding was also held in line with the Barangay’s 83rd anniversary and 10th Apopong Day.
