USS Frank Cable planted trees and cleaned up the Parola shoreline

On their third day of community service activity in Olongapo City and Subic, Zambales, the crew of USS Frank Cable became champions of the environment. This after their visit at Ninos Pagasa Orphanage last Tuesday and at Ilwas Elementary School yesterday where they repainted school rooms, refurbished its furniture and electrical fixtures, did medical and dental consultations, and had fun games with the community.
Joined by the Bagumbayan Volunteers, trainees of Olongapo Skills Training Center, staff of City Agriculture office, Environmental and Sanitation Management Office and Brgy Kalaklan.... they planted more than forty coconut trees and cleaned up the shorelines of brgy Kalaklan.
Brgy Chairman Jess Federico was very thankful to the crew of Cable for selecting his area for the venue of the environmental project of the sailors.
Certificates signed by Mayor Bong Gordon were distributed to the Cable Volunteers for their efforts and as proof of their participation in the Arbor Day activity of the city. LCdr Ronald Rinaldi for his part gave the group a plaque for the cooperation, friendship and hospitality of the volunteers.
