The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) – Tarlac 2nd District Engineering Office (DEO), together with the Armor Division of the Philippine Army, planted a total of 100 fruit-bearing trees in a military camp located in Barangay Sta. Lucia, Capas, Tarlac.
District Engineer Edward Ricardo G. Ramos, Assistant District Engineer Adeltrudes V. Catanes, all Section Chiefs, and selected employees received a warm welcome from the officials and cadets of the Armor Division.
