Rizal LGU donates marching band instruments to PNP Kalinga

RIZAL, Kalinga, Feb. 2 (PIA) -- The Kalinga Provincial Police Office (KPPO) may soon have its own marching band with the recent donation of the Rizal local government unit of a set of marching band instruments.


The donated set of instruments costing more than P400,000 is composed of one radio bass, two trombone, one alto saxophone, one tenor saxophone, three clarinets, one flute, one French horn, two trumpets, one each of baritone, bass drum, snare drum, triple drum and cymbal.

PSSupt. Alfredo Dangani, KPPO provincial director, expressed the Command’s gratitude to Rizal LGU for coming to their rescue when KPPO could not afford to provide itself the instruments. “Like a hero providing one’s needs, Rizal by its name alone, is a hero on this aspect. You are our hero,” he said adding that this support is vital to boost the morale of the police.  

Flordeliza Magkilat, a member of Rizal PNP Municipal Advisory Council (MAC), shared that the idea to purchase instruments for the PNP Kalinga came about while watching the PNP marching band in Camp Dangwa, La Trinidad, Benguet during an awarding ceremony for best police units.  

“Coming home, we eagerly discussed and approved to buy said instruments from MAC funds,” Magkalit said adding Rizal LGU shall shoulder the training of players as part of the donation package.

Mayor Marcelo Dela Cruz Jr. said that through the band instruments played during provincial and municipal affairs and other significant events, the presence of Rizal LGU is around. Peter A. Balocnit (JDP/PAB-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
