STATE OF EMERGENCY FRIDAY EVENING IN GRANSEE: Heavy rain flooded the Dreifelder Halle – the place where celebrations marking the 30th anniversary of Gransee’s office, municipalities and the founding of the brass fire brigade 25 years ago were due to end.
Office manager Frank Steig recalled the founding and early days of the office in the 1990s in front of many guests during the ceremony. Browse projects and challenges.
Fewer employees but more work to do
The entire road network and all public squares, including the media, have been renovated with a €12.8 million funding, a factor not to be underestimated when it comes to the appearance of the old town.
The head of the office drew attention to the state of the personnel: in 2003, the office had 59 employees (52 full-time positions) in the primary administration and 64 in the day care center. The ratio is completely reversed, today there are 47 (43 full-time jobs) to 115 (in daycare centres).
“Nevertheless, we worked with all our might and with your help to improve and beautify the living environment in the villages and in the city of Grancy,” he stressed. This immediately became understandable the day after the public celebration.
Over a thousand residents of Grancy and guests celebrate
Rumors initially spread on social media: the Children’s and Citizens’ Festival in Grancy’s Youth Square would collapse, Roof Garden was canceled and the party threatened to collapse.
None of that was true. Karen Schroeder, division chief at the Children and Youth Bureau, Education Centers and Daycare and Director of the Celebration, showed unwavering optimism, von Steg affirmed: “We will do it, we will have a wonderful day together,” she predicted. The men and women of preschool and after-school care centers have meticulously prepared everything.
Likewise, the athletes from SV Eintracht Gransee. The festival began and hundreds of locals settled in the spacious square. Even if one or two small showers or drops fall from the sky, games and fun can begin.
The children were excited and ran sprints, threw or juggled balls, pushed small wheelbarrows, and slalom on the slalom track. They can be photographed in front of funny photo backgrounds.
A big commendation for the Volunteer Fire Department
The firefighters extended the turntable ladder to a height of up to 30 meters for the very brave. The bikes were coded by the police, and Löwen’s menu entices visitors with tasty and healthy snacks.
Colorful lights, music, chime and chime announced the hustle and bustle of the neighbours. Artists entertained hundreds of guests throughout the day, and staff at Café Miran tempted visitors with coffee and cake. Finally, in the evening, they hit the “best party band in the world”, Roof Garden.
Meanwhile, Stege didn’t miss a heartfelt thank you to the building’s yard staff and volunteer firefighters. During the night from Friday to Saturday, they had to do an extra shift – and not only did the sports grounds be freed from all rainwater, it turned out that the basement of the Siemens school was also under water and had to be pumped.
