The advent celebration of the vdk local association suffered from the fact that many members, especially those to be honored, were on sick leave or even in hospitals. It was nice to end the year of the local association, which was marked by many activities, with a joint advent afternoon, said chairman manfred hartl. It shows the bond between the members and the social association. Its goal, he says, is to make life a little more livable for local people as well.
Already 365 members
In his review, hartl explained that the weismain vdk had 365 members. The trend is upward. With the numerous trips and excursions, there was once again a lot to offer. The motto also for the future should be: "close with what was, be happy about what is, and be open for everything that is coming."
Second mayor hans schott praised the commitment of the vdk. Members and board formed a great unit with their work in weismain.
"Where has the joy of christmas gone??", asked district chairman heinz wittmann in his poem. He had also identified the reasons for a steadily growing vdk family: people were worried about sociopolitical developments. This is particularly evident in pension issues, he says. No one can live on a pension of 700 euros any more. "Social climate save" heibe therefore the slogan, with which on 28. A demonstration with a rally will take place in the city center of munich on march 2020. All members are called upon to take to the streets for more social justice. With regard to christmas, she says, it is important to visit and talk to old or sick people. "Donating time is often more important than donating money or goods", said wittmann.
Contemplative and thought-provoking poems and stories rounded off the afternoon.
