Chidlren's Day April 23
« on: April 28, 2016, 07:02:23 AM »
APRIL 23 – INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S DAY  - “Ulusal Egemenlik ve Çocuk Bayramı”

Saturday 23rd April marked  International Children’s Day - “Ulusal Egemenlik ve Çocuk Bayramı” as it is known in Turkey.   This festival is celebrated throughout Turkey with numerous activities.   
Here in Fethiye, the festivities are centred on Beşkaza Square by the Culture Centre where many activities take place to entertain the children.    It is customary for many local organisations and businesses to give away small gifts and food to the thousands of children who attend. 
This year FIG handed out small gifts including baseball caps, t-shirts, colouring books and water bottles which had been very generously donated by Thomson Cruises.
As in previous years FIG has paid for children from a school that they have supported to attend the celebrations and this year Girmerler School attended.  The school has 65  students in total so they could take part in the days celebrations and to go on the planned boat trip around the bay.  The children all had a fabulous time.
FIG would like to express its thanks to Thomson Cruises for their very generous donations and to the volunteers who assisted on FIG’s stall.
