James L Gordon Scout Council

Monday, November 10, 2008


A total of 654 Scouts, 160 registered adult scouters, and about a few hundreds of visiting guests, parents and educators from all corners of Olongapo City, completing the camp population (which is estimated at about a thousand) who participated in the recently concluded 2008 Council Eco-Jamborette held at the City’s very own Halfmoon Beach from Nov. 6-9, 2008.

The Jamborette turned-out to be a very successful one considering that each and every participants went home HAPPY, SATISFIED and STILL LONGING FOR MORE! No casualty from any activity were reported except for some scouts who needed to be given an extra medical attention due to their reaction to the heat of the sun.

This was made possible by the full support given by no less than the City Mayor who served as the Camp Chief, Hon. Edwin Piano the Deputy Camp Chief for Admin, Mr. Gregorio M. Elane the Deputy Camp Chief for the Advisory Group, with him is the whole Local council Executive board, the DepEd family headed by Dr. Ligaya B. Monato and the local barangay unit headed by Hon. Jess Federico. Among the special guests, aside from the City Mayor Bong Gordon, Jr., were Mr. Ramon Lacabain, II (former vice Governor), Hon. Jess Federico, Brgy. Chairman of Brgy. Kalaklan, Mrs. Namnama Roque (Division Scout Coordinator) and William P. Chavez, Regional Scout director for NCR/CLR.

The Jamborette received an overwhelming support from some groups like the APO fraternity, Subic Tambuli Lions Club, the Youth Network for Environmental Advocates (YNEA), the Philippine National Police (PNP) Philippine National Red Cross-Olongapo, the James L. Gordon Memorial Hospital, Olongapo City Health Office, the Department of Social Welfare and Development, The City Agriculture's Office, the Public Utilities Department, the Disaster Management Office, the Engineering Department, the Environmental Sanitation and Management Office (ESMO), the Public Affairs Office and the Olongapo Mahal ko Foundation.

All these positive output are intended to boost more scouting participation for the months and years to come.

Onwards to QUALITY SCOUTING, ONWARD to more SCOUT INVOLVEMENT and and a more RELEVANT and TIMELY PROGRAMS for the youth!
