Last year, the fruit and gardening association in unterleichtersbach was on the verge of going out of business. After the board positions could be filled, the association is now flourishing proverbially. This is reflected in the number of members, which rose from 61 to 82 in the last year. This is what the board of directors revealed at its annual general meeting.
He who wants to reap must sow
It is not only the recruitment of members that seems to make the new board happy. In the management of the association’s treasury, many expenses directly benefited the members: another lawn mower was purchased, with which the pensioners’ group of the garden association can maintain the lawns of the village. "Now you don’t have to bring your own, it makes the work easier", says tim kleinhenz, chairman of the association.
Less physical work, but still a lot of time, the club members invested in the vacation program. The association organized with the former forester, rainer betz, an adventure hike that went from the stone cross, through the natural pond and the circular path with wooden animals. During the tour, the children suddenly spotted an indian woman in the bushes. Committee member barbara glanc dressed up as a native american and told the little ones a story. Then we went to the treading pool where hilda bohm waded through the water with the kids. Not only the youngest villagers, but also the older ones get their money’s worth in the association: at the village championship of the oberleichtersbacher schutzenverein, the members were allowed to prove their skill at the gun. A completely different talent was needed to tie the advent wreaths. Under the guidance of monika keil, they will be made together again this year.
Acting as one: that is the goal for the coming months. That’s why the association decided to create a new logo. This is now printed on polo shirts. The members of the association may be able to slip into them in june, when they travel together to the state horticultural show in wurzburg – or at the latest on the occasion of their 40th anniversary at the treading pool festival in july, where they want to celebrate their jubilee.
