February 3 2014 holiday in Bulacan – Blas Ople day

The province of Bulacan will be marking the 88th birth anniversary of one its favorite sons, the late Senator Blas F. Ople, this February 3.

The day, which this year falls on Monday, is a special non-working holiday in the said province in Central Luzon by virtue of Proclamation 709, which President Benigno Aquino signed last January 16.

In the declaration, Aquino noted that Ople “devoted decades of his life to selfless, dedicated, and sincere service” to the country and for Filipinos.

Take note though that the Palace is yet to upload the text of this proclamation on their website. Blas Ople Day is one of the legal holidays in Bulacan as listed in their Provincial Administrative Code (click the link to read the document).
