In commemoration of its 73rd Anniversary, the Ilongga scouts will once again form the Long Green Line starting at 6 am today, January 7, 2023.
This will be followed by mangroves-planting at the riverside along Esplanade 8 across the Registry of Deeds Office.
The Long Green Line is a symbolic activity of the Iloilo Girl Scouts to commemorate the Iloilo Girl Scouts Council founding anniversary. This was initiated during the 70th anniversary of the Council on January 7, 2020 in Iloilo City but was not conducted during the height of the pandemic in 2021 and 2022.
It is done to lead in the anniversary activities as a reminder that the scouting movement continues to be a dynamic presence in the community. It showcases the impact of empowered young girls acting in unison towards the common goal of doing well for their peers and the neighborhood.
The Long Green Line of the Ilongga Scouts encourages others to hold-on, strengthen the bonds of scouting and continue to be relevant amidst the changes and challenges of our times.
Other features of the anniversary celebration will be held at the Brgy. Rizal Lapuz Sur gym for a program filled with games, gift-giving, and story-telling for kids of the said barangay.
This year’s activities are in coordination with the Iloilo City government thru the Office of the City Agriculture, the Iloilo City Anti-Smoking Task Force and the Iloilo City Fire Station; and the 3rd Infantry Division, Philippine Army’s 301st Infantry (Bayanihan) Brigade in Dingle, Civil Military Operations Battalion, the 6th Forward Service Support Unit, the 552nd Engineering Construction Brigade-PA, the Tactical Operations Group 6-PAF, and the 6th Regional Community Defense Group-ARESCOM.
