Phuket Governor leads ‘Dok Mai Jan’ project for Royal Funeral

PHUKET: Governor Norraphat Plodthong yesterday (May 29) presided over a ceremony crafting Dok Mai Jan, the traditional artificial flowers used in Thai-Buddhist cremations, in contribution to the funeral processions for the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej to be held in October.

Governor Norraphat was present with his wife, Sudawan Plodthong, President of Phuket Red Cross Phuket Chapter, along with Janthanee Yutthip from the Provincial Community Development Office of Phuket and many other volunteers.

Ms Janthanee said, “The Dok Mai Jan volunteer project is to commemorate the Royal Funeral of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej and invites people to participate.”

“The Ministry of Interior has instructed all provinces to participate in the project… with the goal to expand the project to a national level in terms of budget support, equipment and supply of venue.

“We will teach the leader of each province (Governor) to practice and learn how to create a Dok Mai Jan,” she said.

“The Phuket Community Development Office has recruited qualified graduates and teachers located in the Thalang area and sent them to be trained to teach volunteers (students) to participate in the program. The goal is to create enough flowers for each and every citizen to be able to offer a Dok Mai Jan during the funeral period,” she said.

The three allocated offering points around Phuket in late October were announced last week as Saphan Hin, Ket Ho temple in Kathu, and Wat Manik (Thepwanaram temple) in Thalang. (See story here.)

Governor Norraphat yesterday congratulated volunteers from a variety of organisations from all districts for becoming teachers of the districts.

The trainers, totalling 70 people, include community development staff representatives from 19 local governments, representatives from the Women’s Development Committee Phuket (U-Thong Women’s Group), members of the Phuket Red Cross and OTOP representatives in Phuket.

For interested volunteers, the next seminar open to the public will be held at Training Building 3 at the Phuket Skill Development Center in Srisoonthorn, Thalang, from 9am until 4pm, on June 12-14.

For details contact Mr Praphan Maneechot on 086-3687035 before June 10.
