The motto of the first grobenseebach village festival was "grobenseebach shows itself", and many supporters and visitors made sure that this motto was filled with life. The organizing team with carina geist, heike weiser, werner schrumpf and carsten bokholt looked back on a successful premiere and a very well attended day on late sunday afternoon.
"A place is only worth living through its associations and institutions and the village festival is only complete through the people who animate them", was the motto of corinna geist. It was she who introduced the idea of a village festival to the town council and needed only a few words to convince mayor bernhard seeberger () and the town council.
The fact that the idea fell on fertile ground in the community was proven by the participation of numerous clubs and companies in the commercial area and, last but not least, the many visitors. District administrator alexander tritthart (CSU), who opened the village festival together with the mayor, was also surprised by the premiere and praised the initiators for their efforts. Such events also strengthen the community in a municipality. "The variety of businesses with jobs and apprenticeships as well as the associations with their offerings make grobenseebach a community worth living in and loving", said tritthart.
At the same time as the village festival, the business park also celebrated its tenth anniversary and the helmholz company its 30th anniversary and ten years in grobenseebach. The company kracker kalte- und klimatechnik used the village fair to inaugurate its new building together with the grobenseebach volunteer fire department, and the company schubler fenster- und tursysteme celebrated its new opening. The local companies opened their doors, informed about products and services, but also about training opportunities and job offers.
Children dance and sing
With stands the grobenseebach associations and institutions introduced themselves or participated in the program like the youth band grobenseebach, whose orchestra demonstrated their musical skills. The grobenseebach elementary school and kindergarten as well as the seebachspatzen ensured enthusiasm and a relaxed atmosphere among the visitors with their dance performances and songs.
The nature conservation association was also represented, as were the traditional costume association, the home and gardening association, the kindergarten, the lunchtime supervision service and the parents’ council of the elementary school, the st.-michaelis-verein, the grobenseebacher herbst, the evangelic church community kairlindach and some more. With a children’s program and a bouncy castle, there was also something for the youngest, and various food stations ensured that the visitors did not have to go home hungry or thirsty.
