A total of 35 members of the Head, Heart, Hands and Health (4H Club) and Rural Improvement Club (RIC) successfully finished a two-day free comprehensive livelihood training on fish processing held by District 2 Councilor Miguel “Mike” Alavar III and the Brotherhood for Livelihood Philippines at Sitio Buenakapok, Culianan last Thursday and Friday.

Vice Mayor Cesar Iturralde and  Teodulo Adora, assistant city agriculturist, were the guests during the culmination program last Friday afternoon.

Iturralde congratulated Alavar and the BLP for their another successful training given to the members of 4H Club.

The vice mayor cited the importance of having special skills by every individual as it can help him or her earn a living aside from his or her regular income.
The participants let Iturralde and Adora taste the finished products and they were very impressed with the delicious relyenong bangus and the deboned bangus.

Alavar and the top caliber trainers taught the participants the right way of deboning bangus and preparing relyeno.

The city councilor was very happy after he saw the potentials of the participants as they learned quickly what the trainers taught them in the very first day of training.

The participants came from different barangays like Tolosa, Guisao, Lanzones, Vitali, Mercedes, Cabaluay, Ayala and Monteverde Culianan.

The training given to 4-H Club members was made possible through coordination efforts of Maria Lorna Bautista, city coordinator and city 4H Club vice president for internal affairs Ruby Mae delos Santos.

The participants have asked Alavar to conduct another training like making bottled sardines and similar products.

The city councilor responded positively and promised to return to the place for more trainings.

Also present during the culmination program were Erwin Rodriguez, regional 4H coordinator, Emmanuel Rodriguez, VLAP, Helen Aure, fishery coordinator of Culianan, Glenda Dela Rosa, OCA, Zoraida Usman, Culianan coordinator and  Michelle Alipio of the Rural Improvement Club.

The trainers were Mark Torralba, Joseph Araneta, Alex Sali and Jeffrey Riondon. – Dan Toribio Jr.
