Mayor Rellon leads opening of youth fest in Tagum City


Tagum City Mayor Allan Rellon graced Monday, May 3, the opening of the Youth Festival in the city.

During the event, he called on the youth of Tagum to be optimistic and continue aspiring for excellence even in this time of coronavirus pandemic.

“To the young ones, we need your dynamism as a source of our inspiration to continue on serving the people,” he said.

Governor Edwin Jubahib, who was present in the event, extended the Davao del Note provincial government’s support to Tagumenyo youths with the 10,000-peso grant extended to 29 youth organizations for their various projects.

This year’s Youth Festival is facilitated by the City Youth Development Office (CYDO) and participated by the 77 accredited youth organizations and 23 Sangguniang Kabataan councils in the 23 barangays of Tagum.

To avert the spread of the coronavirus disease, most of the youth festival activities will be virtual and will be streamed online via the CYDO Facebook page, the local government said. #
