‘Aklan Day in Boracay’ on Oct. 15
Aklan Gov. Florencio Miraflores announced October 15 as “Aklan Day in Boracay.”
The declaration was recommended by Department of Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Roy Cimatu.
The Boracay Inter-Agency Task Force will conduct an 11-day dry run starting from October 15 in preparation for the October 26 island reopening.
“Ito ay pasasalamat sa mga volunteers natin na galing sa iba’t ibang bayan ng Aklan na tumulong sa mga unang araw. Kasama na dito ang mga volunteers na patuloy na tumutulong sa rehabilitasyon,” Miraflores said.
The resort island was ordered closed for six months by President Rodrigo Duterte to pave way for its rehabilitation.
