Additionally, there were award-winning games for the children who had the opportunity to have fun and spend marvelous time with their friends.Volunteers who participated in the kermess emphasized that they were very happy with such
programs organized for charitable purposes and that they should be held more often. During the pandemic time, our community members really missed socialization.
