Burnham Park fencing project not abandoned
NONNETTE C. BENNETT, BPFC member

Thank you for posting the Burnham Park Fencing as the “Abandoned park project of the year” in the 2017 Nominations. It made the members of the Burnham Park Fencing Committee (BPFC) aware that we must have done something wrong to whomever nominated us and for you to find it a worthy nomination.

Allow us the courtesy of the definition of “abandoned” if you may please. But allow us too to present the following information:

Bishop Cenzon did not abandon the project but has chosen Quezon City as his temporary residence and members of the BPFC continue to meet on Thursdays with his blessings at the Orchidarium with coffee and baked camote; last year, rehabilitation of the missing “H” on the main gate fronting Rizal Park was done, steel bars and frames were given coats of black paint courtesy of Davies Paints by the Burnham Park Office and a contractor, students of the Baguio City National High School cleaned the plastic panels twice with cleaning materials provided by the BPFC such as baking soda and wiping pads, and snacks for the volunteers; the broken fence along the Lion’s Club area was restored; and broken panels reordered for restoration and replacement, among other businesses we completed.

Please join us on Thursdays at the Orchidarium for coffee and baked camote between 9:30 to 11 a.m. to assure you that we are not near abandoning the project until we turn it over to the Baguio City government any time in 2018, since we are near its completion with just a few more panels still missing their designs by their adopters; although paid and locations reserved.

We would like to include the Hamada Printers and Publishing Co. among those fully paid but have not submitted their designs.

A blessed and bountiful year ahead.
