“We look forward to get together and rekindle the camaraderie and friendship among our fellow Boholanos from Canada and other States in America as well as plan ways to extend and share our blessings to deserving underprivileged fellow Boholanos,” Jackson added.

Provincial Board Member Jade Acapulco Bautista  represented Bohol Gov. Art Yap and Vice Gov. Rene Relampagos during the gala night on July 20.

Conbusac has been supportive to the programs of the provincial government organizing medical missions.

The idea of a global reunion, grandest homecoming of Boholanos was conceived by Conbusac  in Texas, USA in 1997.
