August, The Month of New Activities

This was organized to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the organization. On-site, we met with different people, we could hear the music of Tartar, which at times descended from Turkish music. There was a theater show horse, which, despite raindrops, showed the performance, during which we saw beautifully dressed girls dancing ballet on horseback, oriental dancing, and jumping through a burning barrier. There were various teams, including the Polish children in national costumes that set the Tatar community, Polish songs, and a small show. We also managed to squeeze in delicious food. It was rice with mutton, very delicious, prepared in such special vessels that serve the Tatar community on such occasions. Read the rest of this entry

We played a game to learn the numbers, the kids really liked it. Read the rest of this entry
