The kindergarten st. Katharina neukenroth invites to the festive blessing of his newly designed aubenanlage and the children's playground. The festival begins on sunday, 30. June, at 10.15 o'clock with a liturgical service for which parish priest matthias beck is responsible.
In case of bad weather, the service will be held in the st.-katharina church, in case of good weather in the garden of the kindergarten. Afterwards there is the blessing of the newly designed and equipped with many new playgrounds.
Money for kindergarten
The parents' council takes care of the food and drink. The collection and the proceeds of the festival will be used for the kindergarten. After lunch it is: "achtung! On your mark, get set, go!" A colorful program was rehearsed by the little ones for the afternoon. Many entertainment games will provide excitement and surprises.
"The occasion for the blessing ceremony and the handing over of the children's playground are three "mabnahmen", informs churchwarden rainer fortsch. On the one hand, it was the equipment (with changing table, chairs, tables and more) for the children from one to three years, for which a costauand of 6950 euros was shouldered. 100 percent of these costs were covered by grants from the "childcare financing 2008 to 2013" investment program covered.
As a second measure, a facade renovation was carried out at a cost of 13 125,35 euros. The municipality of stockheim contributed ten percent, the archdiocese of bamberg 25 percent and the catholic church foundation of neukenroth the remaining costs.
New playground equipment
Another rough project was realized with the renovation and redesign as well as the new equipment with age-appropriate playground equipment for children under three years in the outdoor area. Even a bobby car race track could be realized. The municipality had ceded a plot of land and left it to the kindergarten free of charge for the project. The removal of a hedge and several trees by the neukenroth fire department has created additional space for playgrounds and a soccer field.
The investment sum for this area amounts to 23,713.63 euros. Here, too, the community of stockheim contributed ten percent of the financing and the archdiocese of bamberg 25 percent. The rest was taken over by the catholic church foundation of neukenroth.
Church caretaker rainer fortsch also informs that another dormitory is planned for the coming year, for which a good subsidy is also hoped for.
Happy about new facilities
Kindergarten director margaretha gwosdek, together with the staff and children, is overjoyed with the beautiful new facilities and play equipment.
In this context, she says a big thank you to the church administration, first and foremost to church administrator rainer fortsch, who has been working hard for the kindergarten for a long time, and to the many other helpers and supporters. The kindergarten director is pleased about the overall solidarity, which made it possible to maintain and redesign the jewel for the smallest in neukenroth.
The entire population is invited to the kindergarten party.
