“It’s a big project and we are grateful for their help,” Babauta said, referring to Northern Islands Mayor Vicente Santos and his staff members.

She said they spent two days in cleaning up the Tanapag cemetery and one day at the San Roque cemetery.

“The cemetery is a place of prayer and reflection for many in our community,” she added. “Our loved ones are put to rest here so we want to ensure visitors can safely access grave sites to pay their respects.”

Babauta also thanked the Saipan mayor’s office for assisting with the removal of the debris collected during the cleanup activities.
