Calumpit, Bulacan — Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado hailed this weekend the Girl Scouts of the Philippines (GSP)-Bulacan Council for staying vibrant in their endeavors in helping shape a better nation by guiding girls to realize the ideals of womanhood.
With its theme “Once a Girl Scout, Always a Girl Scout,” the GSP-Bulacan Council celebrated its 65th anniversary last week by recommitting itself to the mission of enhancing the personal growth of young women to be nation builders at the Hiyas ng Bulacan Pavilion Center, here.
In her speech at the event, Bulacan First District Rep. Ma. Victoria R. Sy-Alvarado, GSP-Bulacan Council president, thanked the parents who allowed their children to join the Girl Scouts for fun, friendship and leadership skills.
“Thank you so much my dear sisters for you accepted our invitations and arrive on our doormat. You’re all part of the success of our celebration in carrying out the mission of preparing themselves for the responsibilities in the home, the nation and the world community,” she said.
Rep. Alvarado said these young girls have learned the Girl Scout Promise and Law, which is “to serve God and my country.”
She said the challenge to be always prepared equips the Filipino girl with knowledge and skills not only on how to meet natural and other major disasters, but more so in daily occurrences in life to secure herself, her family and other people from unnecessary harm and anxieties.
Also attending the event were Dr. Cynthia Cajudo, regional chairman; Angelita A. Manalili, regional executive director; and Dr. Isabelita Borres, regional director of DepEd Region 3. (Freddie C. Velez)
