The club members visited the park of the recreational complex and tried the traditional fish cooked at the stake.
Following the old tradition –the log from the fireplace should be put into the soup. It improves the taste, and also it is good for disinfection.
All participants, who planted the lilac bushes, were awarded traditional „yellow T-shirts of the leader“ with the logo of the club.
The custodian of the tradition of the «Alley of friendship» were awarded the memorable badge of the Club and souvenirs.
Participants of the meeting and Club Members wished Mr. Nikolai Kolotilo to stay healthy and be successful, and thanked him for keeping the tradition of the club through the years – planting the lilac bushes in Latvia, with representatives of many countries all over the world!
