Barangay Old Poblacion’s bet wins Maitum’s first boat making competition

MAITUM, Sarangani (January 29, 2022) – Roger Laguindam and Maymay Escototo’s entry wins Maitum’s first boat making competition on January 27 at the municipal hall. Laguindam and Escototo are locals from Barangay Old Poblacion. During the culmination ceremony of the 15th Bangsi Festival on January 28, Laguindam and Escototo were awarded and took home P10,000. According to Ofelia Valdez, barangay councilor, what made their entry stand out is its clear presentation on the way of life of the fisherfolks in Old Poblacion. “The entry really represents yung boat na ginagamit ng mga fishermen namin sa Old Poblacion which is one of their major tools when fishing especially ng bangsi,” Valdez said. She also commended the Local Government Unit of Maitum for highlighting the said activity. “Through this competition, parang nailalahad na din na ang Old Poblacion ang talagang producer ng bangsi kung saan nagsimula ang marinated bangsi which is now Maitum’s One Town One Product,” she added. The boat making competition is one of the activities of the 15th Bangsi Festival. (Martin Fernando Bernad Jr.-Joshua John Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
