FCSR PROMISEKIDS HIT HIGH NOTES AT RURAL SONG FESTIVAL

Basia Kolasinska, FCSR Arts and Music Director, together with the Head of Education for the Rural Commune, was asked to MC the very popular annual Rural Song Festival this year, held in the village of Cieszeniewo on April 26th. Over 70 kids from pre-school through middle school participated in the festivities.

It was a wonderful opportunity to showcase many of our talented PromiseKids, including the Bierzwnica School band, “Pantera” (Panther). Under Basia’s direction, the 12 students, aged 7-10 won 2nd place singing the Polish song, “Ach Jak Przyjemnie” (Oh How Nice)! Another student of Basia’s, a 13-year-old soloist from the Bierzwnica School, was awarded 1st place singing: "Na Pierwszy Znak" (At the First Sign). Congratulations Basia and PromiseKid Singers and Musicians!

FCSR was happy to not only support the event, but also to provide the main prizes. The event was fantastic and all participants had a great time!

Things are getting hot in the kitchen! Between May 15-19 semi-final competitions for the Top Little Chef Program will take place in all our schools. The little chefs are busy right now creating their best healthy recipes and food prep. How exciting!

On May 30, the top 12 chefs will travel to KFC “MIG-MAG Restaurant” in Szczecin as their reward and to get some last minute food prep advice.

The finals will be held on June 13! We can’t wait!

Thank you AmRest for your continuous support of this program and especially KFC Szczecin! You’re the best!!

GREAT MOVE FCSR!

Yes, we’ve moved into a brighter, more convenient office in Swidwin! Thank you Meg and Basia – moving is never an easy task and especially sifting and sorting through 15 years of files and memorabilia! But, it was time and you did a great job!

A special thanks to the Woit (rural head) of Swidwin who helped find us this new office and also with the move. In all honesty, it showed how much the contributions of the Foundation are valued in the community and how our two staff members, Meg Ciucka, FCSR Operations Director and Basia Kolasinska, FCSR Arts and Music Director, are respected in the PromiseLand!

Our new address:
Nowomiejska 35 Street, 78-300 Świdwin
