Sampaloc Lake Cleanup Rally

Seminary students attended the Sampaloc Lake Cleanup Rally August 11, 2007 and were by far the largest contingent in attendance. Students swarmed over the western shoreline clearing debris in and out of the water. During a much appreciated break at the end of the morning, Fr. Jerry Bitoon expressed the importance of the lake’s facelift. Clutching a microphone hooked to a food vendor’s cart, he spoke to the students about the abuse and contamination Sampaloc Lake had suffered.
