Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara spearheaded the 25th Provincial Christmas Jamborette of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines Bicol Region Mayon (Albay) Council.
Thousands of scouts from different municipalities gathered at the Jamboree Campsite, Basag, Ligao City.

Governor Bichara said he plans to develop the place to an even more functional permanent campsite and put up facilities such as swimming pools, multi-purpose buildings, concrete road, shower rooms and toilets for scouts and scouters to be convenient.
“We can even host a regional jamboree here. This place can be utilize by youths, teachers, barangay officials… this can also be a permanent evacuation center instead of evacuating in schools,” the Governor said.
Meanwhile, Ligao City Mayor, Patricia Gonzalez-Alsua said that the opening ceremony was a “momentous event” as “it teaches us the real essence of Christmas which is giving.”
According to the provincial government, the event ended with the ceremonial tree planting.
