Last January 22, Jci Panguil Bay chapter along with the Barangay Officials of Barangay Baroy Dacu headed by Brgy Capt Sely Solatorio, Environment SB Eric Basalo, 35ib military officials and staffs, implemented the planting of more or less 500 mangrove seedlings which was donated by our Jci Mem Jun Oredimo from Kapatagan. Each seedling was then tied with a Jci Panguil Bay flaglet donated by Jaeco's General Merchandise for identification purposes. Along with our project planning for the mangrove planting, Project Advisor PP Maricris Ong along with Project Chair Fritz Yap then implemented the coastal on the same area Barangay Baroy Dacu where a huge portion of Panguil Bay is situated. It was still a joint effort with the Barangay officials, 35ib Philippine Army and the chapter members to clean up the area where the mangroves were planted.
