Werner Funk, chairman of the Sängerkranz, recalled the development of the idea from two and a half years ago to its realisation in the last few weeks. 13 participating singers of the regulars' table "Cancelled choir rehearsal" had contributed to the realisation, he thanked. And the municipal building yard was also appreciated.
Place of remembrance
The new milk bank is a reminder of "Wois froier woar - How it was in the past", because a similar bank had once stood not far from the Goldener Stern clubhouse, where the surrounding farmers delivered their milk to the dairy headquarters. Many of the singers in the immediate vicinity had experienced this as an everyday occurrence in their younger years, Funk said.
Today, the bench with the milk cans is intended to give walkers the opportunity to rest and remember this piece of history. There is also a plaque with pictures and text highlighting this history. This was appreciated as a "great initiative" of the Sängerkranz singers by Mayor Ruck, who, together with the other visitors, thanked them with applause for the German folk song "Das Morgenrot - The dawn" as another "vocale" contribution with the expectant lines "The sun, it beams at us from afar, and gives us life and joy in addition".
