Sutomore hosted a three-day meeting of working groups of the European Scout Region (ESR), during which around 90 scouting officers from 40 countries in Europe will work on improving and strengthening the scouting organization in Europe.

On that occasion, Vice-President of the Bar Municipality Tanja Spicanovic spoke with the Director of ESR David Mekki, representatives of the Scout Association in Montenegro (SICG) Borislav Jovovic and Dušan Masonicic, and the head of the Scout squad "24th November "Miodrag Tanjo Masonicic.

Stressing the importance of the scouting organization for the youth "in our country, and in our municipality," as well as the support of Bar municipality to the scouts, Spičanović announced that this trend would continue in the future.

"Scouting is a pure side of life, and a scout organization is a place where young people spend their time in a quality way and are trained for everything that life would expect them to do," said Spičanović, among other things.

The ESR Director thanked the Bar Municipality for hospitality and over 40 years of constant support for the development of scouts in Montenegro. Mekki has also assessed that the organization of this kind of event is a "clear indicator of the good work of the SICG".

As he pointed out, Montenegrin scouts are followed by even more excellent support from Europe, including funding three projects by FOSE, "and one of these projects is the squad from Bar “24th November".

Representatives of SICG, among other things, said that Bar has long been one of our municipalities with the most scouts, while Miodrag Masoničić said that choosing Bar and the squad "24. November "for such an event is not a coincidence," but the result of great work".
