Mayor Garin personally visited Tribus Bakolodnon, Bantalaan, and Baklayanon to express his support and make everyone feel valued.
In his personal capacity, he provided snacks, t-shirts and P200.00 each to all the participants.
He is also scheduled to visit the other remaining tribes in the coming days.
