Second kronach engagement bourse gets even rougher and more colorful

Kronach- the first kronach engagement borsa for sniffing out, stealing ideas, networking and trying things out was to be discovered in september 2017. Many visitors were impressed by the colorful range of products and services offered by the "engaged city" and its cooperation partners. On saturday, 13. October, the "market of opportunities" is now starting into the second round. Initiator is the "engaged city with the coordination center for civic engagement (kobe) in the kronach district.

"The goal of the borse is to draw attention to the diversity and attractiveness of volunteer work in the city and county of kronach, to encourage cooperation between the associations and, above all, to recruit burghers as new "volunteers", claudia ringhoff, project coordinator of the "engaged city", made this clear, as well as sabine nuber from kobe. And the concept was already a success at the premiere: every association was able to go home with new contacts from interested parties. There have been some concrete commitments and even a new project idea has been launched. Thus motivated, it was agreed that a continuation of the action is needed: even more coarse and colorful, with even more providers, interested and good ideas.

22 exhibitors already registered

"This will be a good reflection of our volunteerism in the city and county.", ringhoff is pleased about the registration of 22 exhibitors so far – more than twice as many as in 2017. "With over 1.8 million members nationwide, the vdk is germany’s largest social association", explained district chairman heinz hausmann. Unfortunately, volunteer work in the 39 local associations in the district is declining. He hopes that the borse will attract committed new members. BRK volunteer manager ralf schmidt could not confirm that the willingness to volunteer was diminishing. "The honorary office has changed", he spoke from experience. A permanent "commitment he says that there are often no more volunteers over a period of decades, but rather on a project basis over a certain period of time.

Diving tower not yet completely finished

Diving tower not yet completely finished

The open-air swimming pool in kulmbach has been spruced up for the start of the season and has a number of new attractions. When the 2019 outdoor pool season kicks off tomorrow with a swim-up, the new diving tower area won’t be quite ready yet, but it shouldn’t take much longer. "For the 29. June is a rough opening party planned", stephan proschold, head of kulmbach’s public utility company, revealed yesterday during a tour of the site.

Until then, the visitors of the open-air swimming pool will have to live with one or the other minor inconvenience, especially as far as construction noise is concerned. But it’s worth it, because in addition to the new diving tower with one-, three- and five-meter boards, there will also be a seven-meter high water climbing wall in the future. "We are already looking forward to this additional attraction."

No more stuck doors

As a further necessary measure, all changing cabins in the front swimming pool area have been renewed, jammed doors are now a thing of the past. "Furthermore, the kiosk has been given a new coat of paint, and next year we will also be redesigning the terrace area", said stephan proschold.

Simply use your smartphone to photograph the items you want from a light wall with product photos, click on the shopping cart icon – and then pick up everything a little later. "Great," escapes one of the visitors to the trade fair, who on opening day tries to catch a glimpse of the prominent visitor and her companion, polish prime minister donald tusk, above the throng of camera people.

But chancellor angela merkel (CDU) is not so easily impressed. "I have a request," she says. "There’s also a clearly visible sign that you can use to get it out of the basket if you’ve bought too much." Merkel hits it off with the stand visitors. She’s a veteran – it’s already her eighth tour of the high-tech trade show.

Close behind her, like a shadow, is lower saxony’s new minister president stephan weil (SPD), who just a few weeks ago pushed merkel’s political son-in-law, david mcallister (CDU), out of his seat of office.
