A PROPOSED ordinance supporting the local council of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines was recently signed into law by Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista.

QC Councilor Elizabeth Delarmente’s Ordinance No. 2725-2018, which mandates a one peso increase in the admission prices in all QC cinemas for the month of October, aims to support the local scouting movement’s developmental programs and to foster leadership among the Filipino youth.

Bautista said the additional one peso on all admission fees will be used to fund the QC boy scouts’ activities and programs.

The Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP)-Quezon City Council recognizes the month of October as National Scouting Month.

Prominent among the activities and series conducted by the BSP-Quezon City Council are those geared towards the promotion of the moral, spiritual and physical well-being of the youth; the development of sports and livelihood, and; assisting in the promotion of the environment and waste management program and community development of the city government,” the ordinance states.

At present, there are 11,361 registered boy scouts in Quezon City.
