As of this year, ComVal accepted the challenge to hold this prestigious event with the leadership of the Municipal Mayor, Lema P. Bolo, Local Government Unit (LGU), and some public and private business sectors.
“First and for most, we need to guarantee the security of the participants, and make sure that our municipality can handle the security system for this event,” said Tenio.
Also, private schools and business sectors participated and helped to make the activity a successful one.
‘’The preparation for this event is not easy, we really need to exert effort and has a lot of expenses to make, but all of this is successfully done by the help of our LGU and other business partners,” Tenio added.
Moreover, the activities for the first day, it started with a parade and then followed by the opening program headed by Scout, Officials, and Local Government Officials.
For the following days, there will be a lot of activities that will challenge the scouts and will probably test their capabilities and skills.
‘’In scouting, young ones will learn that they will not win always, they may encounter defeat but at the same time they will learn from it,’’ stressed Tenio.
Lastly, Tenio hoped that after this EMR scout jamboree, after the scouts go home to their respective provinces and cities, they have a lot of lessons to bring and share that they will apply to their community, not just to their schools but also to the church and to their families that will reflect their scout-like character and to serve God and men. #YesToDavaoDeOro (Chrizael Feona Ongyot, Compostela National Highschool Campus Journalist/ ID Comval)
