JCI Mandaue has acknowledged the need to provide sanitary assistance to this sector of our government workers as they too are considered as today’s key and essential front liners in the fight against the spread of COVID-19.
The essential hygiene kits include two disposable masks, two washable masks, a K95 mask, a pair of eye goggles, a face shield, and an alcohol container – all these were carefully curated to ensure they are well protected during their tasks of collecting and segregating our wastes.

For the Kids of JCI Mandaue’s Adopted Communities

In Barangay Labogon and Guizo, Mandaue City

Written by: Kristoffer Yurong             Edited by: David Maquilan

 

On 12th of December 2020, 12 Merry Men became beacons of hope as they wore not just their Santa hats but also their Santa hearts as they gave Christmas gifts, goodies and food to 150 kids ages 2-6 of JCI Mandaue’s Day Care Centers in Labogon and Guizo.

Compliant to the strictest health protocols set by the local government units, The Merry Men set off to these two communities and distributed their Christmas packages which included kiddie masks, kiddie face shields, a bunch of toys, coloring books, kiddie items, a wallet and a piggy bank. They also provided food, ice cream and snack bars.

House to house these merry men braved the heat of the December sun just to be able to reach these kids in their respective abodes since health protocols strictly deny them to go out during this pandemic.

 

Congratulations to Project Chair Gab Melgo, VP For Community Toffee Yurong and LO President Nike Cagulada as well as the rest of JCI Mandaue for a successful gift giving activity.

The Merry Men would like to thank the local government units of Guizo and Labogon as well as Ms. Richie Duenas, Ma’am Mila and our pre-school teachers from the two day care centers for the assistance as well as our donors and benefactors to make this activity a huge success.

PRESENTS

MANDAUE NIGHTS 2020

VIRTUAL FELLOWSHIP AND KAMUSTAHAN

BY: KRISTOFFER JUN YURONG

On 15th of August 2020, the Merry Men of JCI Mandaue held their first-ever virtual fellowship and kamustahan dubbed as MANDAUE NIGHTS.

The event was fostered to ensure that the JCI community still breathes life and hope amidst the current global health crisis.

The event was a bevy of virtual shenanigans that included a love problem-solving segment, dubbed as “Tambag Alang sa Gugma”; a “Fast Talk” segment patterned from a popular showbiz oriented talk show and “Mandaue’s Got Talent” which was intended to showcase the talents of the attendees and tons of virtual and online games to entertain the viewers.

Raffles made the segments also very exciting as prizes from sponsors abound the whole fellowship night. The virtual fellowship also witnessed a mini concert from its very special guest, Anton Mansueto of “Glynis and Anton” – Cebu’s most sought after acoustic duo. It was not just the highlight; it was also the best part of the night as guests were able to sing their hearts out with their most requested songs plus today’s music hits.

The five equally charming hosts delighted the audience with their charisma, looks and comical demeanor consisted of Merry Men – Brad Dablos, Edmar Dionson, JM Bercede Yap, Sam Taguibao and JCI Immediate Past President Rod Limpot Jr.

Special visitors also added amusement to the fellowship as our sister chapters Womandaue, Boholana Kisses, Bohol Limestone and Bohol Chocolate Hills also joined the revelry. Presidents from other chapters joined the fun as well.

Truly it was one great night with almost 4 hours of virtual fun, food, drinks and music as we all celebrated life the ‘better normal’ way.

This event was made possible through the generosity of these sponsors:

  • Cartel Inn |
  • Citi Car Rentals and Trucking |
  • Go Green Products |
  • Skin 911 |
  • Oh Yu Geh |
  • Tsekout.ph |
