Four decades in the service of a colorful steinwiesen

Four decades in the service of a colorful Steinwiesen

Flower decorations, well-kept green "spots in the whole village, easter fountains and christmas decorations – without the horticultural association it would look quite dreary in some streets of steinwiesen. But there they are, the ruhrigen members of the horticultural association steinwiesen with ingeborg wich-reif in the lead.
And this has been the case for 40 years: back then, on 14 june, the. April 1977, founded by seven people. Volker naser took over the post of first chairman and remained at the helm of the association for 34 years. Ludwig deuerling became treasurer and is still treasurer today.
Already in 1981 the horticultural association had grown to 23 members. In the years that followed, there were highs and lows. Volker naser took over more supra-local tasks, which resulted in fewer activities in steinwiesen. But one started again and again, there were many who were interested in the association and its activities.
In 1998, 34 members were paid, and work continued steadily. In 2002, the 25th anniversary of the association was celebrated and the members proudly celebrated having taken over the sponsorship of public grounds and having contributed to the rethinking of plant protection with presentations and lectures.

The association continues to grow

Hedi hohn went into the chronicle in her incomparable way and in the most marvelous dialect. Especially on the fact that in 2011 with ingeborg wich-reif a woman had taken over the chairmanship. Volker naser could not continue at the helm for health reasons and resigned his office. "And so neiles-ludwig is working as treasurer and ingeburch as the new chairman of the board of directors, stressed the hedi and said immediately in addition that "it would be a shame if the 35 members were to become marra wan deudn". And it has been successful, there are already two new admissions.

Founding members still active

On this anniversary, district chairman fritz pohl was able to present two awards for 40-year memberships – founding members volker naser and ludwig deuerling. Volker naser was chairman for 34 years and received a certificate and the "pin of honor on ribbon" for his work and many years of membership.
Ludwig deuerling has been treasurer of the horticultural association for 40 years. He received a certificate and the "gold badge of honor" from the district chairman. As a surprise, this time there was no flower bouquet, but a beautifully bound fruit bouquet for the honorees.
In his greeting, district chairman fritz pohl emphasized that the horticultural societies are "all green" in the village. In steinwiesen, too, a lot is done here on a voluntary basis. A municipality would not be able to pay for these tasks if they had to be carried out by the local building yard. He also briefly mentioned the new district advisor, beate singhartinger. With her, the horticultural associations and communities again have advice at their disposal. Pohl wished the jubilee association continued enjoyment.
