More than 100 area Village Scouts were told to respect the monarchy and their neighbors during training in Banglamung.
District Chief Chawalit Saeng-Uthai and Nongprue Deputy Mayor Suwach Rachatawattanakul opened the Dec. 14 session at Theppabut Temple.
The scout activities focused working together to build love for nation, religion, and monarchy, as well as respecting traditions to build unity and promote “healthy” group formation.

“The project is to promote unity and harmony amongst citizens and strength in the social institutions to foster relationships that will be the strength of the country’s development,” Chawalit explained.
The “jamboree” was held Dec. 14-17 for the 40th time at district level and 772nd time at the national level to honor HM the King’s 85th birthday. The Royal Family has a long history of involvement with Scouts, including donating 100,000 baht for scarves and accessories in 1972.
