The summer ahead holds a great deal of excitement for all of us. Whether you're swimming, grilling and exploring the world, summer crackles with infinite possibilities. And even though spontaneity defines the season, summer's even better when you plan out a few adventures.
While you decide how to fill your own summer days, here's how some of our Boholano friends would spend theirs.
Batuan Vice Mayor Yes Tirol-Dumagan- My plans for #summer2018 include attending a workshop in Jeju, Korea organized by Cifal United Nations for Training and Research (UNITAR) for the promotion of sustainable tourism and forest management of Batuan; turning over musical instruments to Rizal High School so they can final form a drum and bugle group and train this summer; also the 1st Batuan Youth Camp will be materialized that will allow various private and public schools in the town to showcase their students skills in sports, etc. On a personal note, will bond more with my family through getaways and enroll my eldest child in a swimming workshop.

Panglao Councilor Rogelin Clemeńa-Degoma- What do you mean with #summer2018 plans? As a councilor? As an entrepreneur? As a mom and a wife? As a councilor, I will be starting to facilitate livelihood projects on recycling. As an entrepreneur, I will be monitoring on the business on its peak season. As a mom and wife, my family will go to Cagayan de Oro- Bukidnon for a soccer tournament/family vacation in Mindanao on the 1st week of April. And Hongkong with kids on 1st week of June. Asa ka ani makauban nako? Kuyog ta!

Doris Dinorog-Obena- I might be busy with freelance work this summer but I would like to finish something on the research and academics side but a weekend get away to Surigao or Siargao via Leyte with my children will be great for this summer. Have a great summer!

Butch Bernas, Ph.D.- My summer 2018 bucketlist is to mesmerize the beaches of Siargao and to explore the gigantic rock formation and crystal clear beaches of El Nido, Palawan. For now, I’m preparing myself to go to gym to achieve a beach body physique.
Melinda Mendez- Basalo- I will be spending more time with my family this summer. I will keep myself busy with the events for the Women's Month.

Aside from the vacation, it's an opportunity to visit the last communities affected by typhoon Yolanda way back in 2013 to introduce our Blue Boat Project of our Rotary Club in Pasay. In our province, Panglao and Maribojoc are beneficiaries of the project with 40 paddle boats already turned over to the fisherfolks of the said towns in partnership with Angat Buhay of VP Leni Robredo. And at the same time, we want to link them also with our partner Rotary Clubs in Rotary International District 3810 composed of Manila, Pasay, Cavite and Oriental Mindoro to sustain the livelihood and humanitarian efforts in the area. Northern Palawan was the last place devastated by the said supertyphoon.
Fiel Angeli Espejo Araoarao-Gabin- Summer plans? I will pursue with my usual culture and arts promotion activities. I will spend Holy Week with family in Siquijor province for spiritual enrichment, communing with nature and family bonding. And also, I will try to start a fitness regimen for a healthy lifestyle for both health and aesthetic purposes.

AR De La Serna- Goal is sunkissed skin. I would like to get tanned for the first time because my friends from Manila tell me why I’m not dark. I'll try my best to be as dark as possible.
