Sir Aking, Stalwart in Local Scouting

The training team members of the Negros Occidental Council of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines paid a surprised visit to Sir Aking Torrefranca in his residence at Gan Subdivision, La Carlota City on the following day after they conducted the last camp fire to the late TTM Romeo Toda.

Sir Aking beamed upon seeing his fellow scouters in his humble home. Suffering from a stroke, he managed to welcome Sir Bert Maguad, Council Scout Executive; Sir Ben Fundador, Sir Allan Agraviador, Sir Antonio C. Biangco, and the four lady scouters, Mesdames Imelda Escobar, Lynne Brillo, Thelma Lamason Ortencio, and Charit Gangoso.

He moved by the aid of a cane. It was recalled that while he was giving a speech by proclaiming a school queen, he suddenly became unconscious and he was rushed to the hospital. At least he recovered but he couldn't perform his scouting routine anymore. In short, he was out for circulation as far as scouting activities are concerned. He just stayed at home, watching television.It seems nobody remember him anymore, but not his associates in the Boy Scouts of the Philippines, Negros Occidental Council.

"A sense of loyalty, a sense of pride, and love of country epitomizes the "one purpose" of scouting for the next generation, stressed Cueva.

He expressed how President Duterte's concern on scouting, that is to encourage and to activate scouting in every school to have a "stable generation" - a generation of citizenry that love their country.

He further said by influence our next generation to love their country is a giving a chance of our country to prosper. He qualified that a citizenry that never love their country - they're nothing. He believed that this is the missing link or weakness that the population never loof after their nation personally.
