Transylvanian Playground Benefits from Live Oak UU Support

Rev. Zsuzsa Bartha, a Unitarian minister in Transylvania who spent a year studying in Berkeley as the Balázs Scholar (2001-2001), mentioned to Live Oak UU member Jay Roller that the children of Nagykároly needed a couple of playgrounds. In November, 2009, Live Oak raised $850.00 in our Sunday worship collection for this project.

Zsuzsa also persuaded the Nagykároly city council to provide some funds for the playground. And she received some assistance from the companies that manufacture some of the play equipment. Below are photos of one of the playgrounds which is next to a K-3 school. A second playground still needs some additional work.

These facilities are for all the children of the area. Romanian, Hungarian, Roma, and Schwabian children have an opportunity to play together and to build better relationships for their futures.

Recycling bins are prominently placed at the playground.
