A lot changed in 72 hours together

When many hands help together, a lot can be accomplished in 72 hours. This was reported by the young people and adults of five of the six groups active in the district at the joint conclusion of the "72 hours – heaven sends us" campaign of the federation of german catholic youth (BDKJ) in wiesentheid. From thursday evening until sunday afternoon, volunteers implemented various projects, which required a lot of sweat.

On the former sports field in the center of wiesentheide, which had been the focus of the action there, the coordinator of the deanery, susanne muller, and her team welcomed the participants. Around 300 children and young people in the district helped out with the six projects. Muller buried the guests of honor, such as district administrator tamara bischof. The patroness praised the action and the young helpers who participated. Something like this proves that the district has a great youth that is able to implement rough actions together.

"You were the project that was presented as an example even nationwide." Susanne muller coordinator 72-hour campaign

In dettelbach, she went to see for herself when the young people there were sprucing up the parish garden. "Some of it was hard work," but thanks to a great community effort, a lot of things could be realized, the district administrator said with respect. Otto hunnerkopf, member of the state parliament, considered the experience that young people make a difference through their own hands-on work to be important. The results that came out "might also make you a little proud".

At the end of the event, wiesentheid’s pastor peter gottke held a short devotion, in which he was supported by the five-member organizing team of the 72-hour campaign in the district. In the three days, gottke said, something had been achieved that was impressive. The right way is not just to complain, but to get down to work. As in wiesentheid, the next step is now to follow. The square that had been prepared there should come to life, become a playground, a place of encounter, gottke wished.

The individual groups presented their projects, daredevils, as well as curious experiences of the past days. The roughest group was at work in wiesentheid. Manager mirco dornberger explained details. Already on friday there was a lot of media interest, besides contributions for the radio even a short sequence was filmed, which was later broadcasted in the ARD-tagesschau. "You were the project that was even presented nationwide as an example," susanne muller emphasized.

Julia heub reported from dettelbach. The bund naturschutz group in volkach, which built a feel trail, was presented by angela meyer and franziska kornell. For the schwarzach scouts, simon schuster and mareike barthel told how they collected donations for the flood victims. Or how they worked in the kindergarten in versbach to bring the garden up to scratch. The students of a ninth grade class of the marktbreiter gymnasium visited different kindergartens, as teacher elke obermaier explained. Ann-christin menz and jochen burz reported about the parish community mainschleife and the intercultural festival initiated there at the sports ground in fahr.
