This summer, children were offered a long vacation with various programs from local clubs and companies.
The first two weeks started with an extensive holiday program for the city of Osterburken in collaboration with the Caritas Neckar-Odenwald-Kreis Association.
Social workers of the Caritas association Anne Geyer and Fabian Fürst looked after a total of 58 children at the “Przyszłość” youth center at the Limes school. There were fun and exciting trips to the Tripsdrill theme park and the Experimenta Science Center in Heilbronn. In Heilbronn, children explored scientific and technical topics in more than 270 practical workplaces, in line with the motto: “Experience creates knowledge”.
The Volksbank Kirnau eG Christmas campaign “Play and have fun with your Volksbank Kirnau eG”, which took place on the sports ground of the Osterburken sports club, was a continuation. This offer was accepted by a total of 53 children from the Ahorn, Ravenstein, Osterburken and Rosenberg communities.
Thanks to the active involvement of Volksbank employees, it was possible to organize a varied afternoon for children. At individual stations, such as sack races or wheelbarrow races, children could exercise with great joy and ambition, followed by some refreshment and drinks. In the end, the workers played soccer and the “fox circles” together.
Osterburken Sports Club’s gymnastics department proposed a “scavenger hunt by Wiesental” at Osterburken Sports Club. The children spent an exciting morning in nature.
