Młochów - Welcome Summer Family Picnic

27 June was the date set for Nadarzyn local authority's annual summer festival with Młochów Palace Park being particularly appropriate as the venue - it coincided with its reopening date after renovation.

The report in Nadarzyn News July edition, with additional pictures on page 13 is as follows:

This year's festival in Młochów - Welcome Summer - took place on 27 June. Nadarzyn Arts Centre, as every year, prepared a multitude of attractions for both the youngest and adults. Even the capricious June weather turned out kind, so that, apart from the performances, participants of the festival could also admire Młochów park, in which renovation work is drawing to an end.

The first Family Picnic took place on Sunday afternoon, 28 June, on the church-side area of a park in Nadarzyn. Holy Mass starting the community afternoon was presided over by J.E. Archbishop Kazimierz Nycz - Metropolitan of Warsaw.

However, the most awaited point of the picnic - by the youngest - was the opening of the playground. The symbolical cutting of the ribbon was done by the Parish-priest of Nadarzyn Parish, the Mayor of the Gmina, and a representative of SEGRO (sponsor of the children' play equipment), while those who were obviously most interested, that is to say the children, occupied the playground from the start until the end of the event. The afternoon was full of various attractions for all the family. There was a raffle, barbecue, various competitions and games for children, stage performances, etc.

Alongside the many Nadarzyn resident visitors and their guests, were the representatives of Nadarzyn Gmina local authority, of course, with Mayor Janusz Grzyb at their head, plus a delegation from the friendly Ukrainian Gmina of Hostomel with Mayor Anatoli Kiriczenko. The Picnic concluded with a concert by Orchestra OSP Nadarzyn under the leadership of Mirosław Chilmanowicz.

The playground, as Parish Priest Andrew Wieczorek emphasised, grew out of a social initiative supported by Nadarzyn Parish and Gmina Nadarzyn local authority.

I am sorry that there are so few photographs, but we arrived, took the dog for a walk around the park and then I was told we had to leave. We had a good, if distant view of the evening's fireworks, however.

The park still had quite a bit of work to do on it, but this was not surprising after nearly two months of heavy rain and storms.
