Run with a National Park Director in Forest
The museum staff planted a tree in honour of harmony, and to celebrate the Year of The Forests.
Hurray! Here it is! The first Harmony Tree planted :)! This year the World Harmony Run proudly supports the initiative of UN General Assembly which proclaimed 2011 as the International Year of Forests. Every tree that is being planted symbolizes the idea of harmony, coexistence between a man and nature and the protection of forests.
Hurá! Je to tady! První stromek harmonie zasazen :)! Světový běh harmonie letos podporuje iniciativu UN, které vyhlásilo rok 2011 Mezinárodním rokem lesů. S každým zasazeným stromem podporujeme myšlenku harmonie, souznění člověka a přírody a ochranu lesů.
The Headmaster of the school in Brumov-Bylnice is holding the plaque that is going to be fixed near the tree to remind people why it was planted.
Paní ředitelka ZŠ Brumov-Bylnice drží v rukou čestnou plaketu, jež bude následně připevněna na stromek a bude tak připomínat myšlenku, se kterou byl zasazen.
Volleyball players with their blue training suits perfectly match our team. Can someone recognize who is who?
Že nepoznáte, kdo je kdo? Volejbalistky, které s námi proběhly celou obcí Brumov-Bylnice, do našeho týmu se svými dresy skvěle zapadly.
