The “Martisor Workshop” that took place on February 25th and March 4th was a success! Many children between 3 and 12 years, often accompanied by parents or grandparents have made special trinkets that they offered to friends or family members, thus bringing joy to all. The money collected from the sale of the trinkets will serve to restore the Maringer chapel.
The organizers want to thank the participants and members of the community who let the beauty of spring to penetrate into their souls! ”
