I wanted to share with you an exciting event that took place on Tuesday, September 12.
As part of our ongoing work with the Green Sun Association, we were pleased to participate in a Children's Day event at Gelence School. A Day Full of Laughter and Joy.
Fun, Play and Creativity with Over 100 Children

From games to origami to exciting competitions, we spent a day full of laughter, creativity and joy with more than 100 enthusiastic children. This festival, specially designed for children, was an unforgettable experience that brought a smile to everyone's face.
Today I will talk about the meaning and importance of lokma dessert for Turks.
First of all, the most important of the customs from the past to the present is the distribution of lokma after the deceased.
By distributing lokma, it is ensured that the deceased is well remembered and more good deeds are obtained. Thus, both the deceased person will be comfortable and it helps his relatives to find some peace of mind.
The second is the charity lokma because people want to do good. Lokma casting process is poured if a work that is desired to be instrumental in good deeds has emerged. For many reasons, such as the work done being fruitful, happy and healthy, charity lokma is poured.
Baklava, the sultan of desserts, was also the dessert of the sultans.
This dessert, which entered our day during the Ottoman period, is still the most popular dessert in Türkiye. It is made and either taken when going to the guest or the host takes it when the guest is coming. It is made on holidays. It is made on golden days. It is a dessert that is usually served when a guest arrives.
Preparation of Walnut Baklava Recipe
First, let's prepare the syrup for our dessert. For this, let's take sugar and water in a suitable pot.
After mixing, let our syrup boil.
At the end of the time, add lemon juice and boil for a few more minutes and remove from the stove.
An exhibition of works was organized by the members of the furniture painting workshop from the Bod Péter Pedagogical High school. The exhibition, which took place on Sunday afternoon in the upstairs hall of the Vigadó House of Culture, was very well received.

Our volunteers Alik Mazmanyan and Mariam Evanesyan presented their homeland in English and Kató Kincső Barbara translated it into Hungarian for the local community.
The March 15 celebration parade this year featured the Hungarian gear-driving champion.
Kézdivásárhely witnessed another traditional celebration. This time the public commemorates the March youth, and celebrated the anniversary of the 1848-49 revolution, and the struggle for freedom with a wide range of events.
Kézdivásárhely held a carnival last month, it was the closing of winter where people were dancing and singing, and everybody was wearing masks and carnival clothes.
There were only two horse-drawn carriages at this traditional event, which has been organized for many years. One was full of members of our Green Sun association team and the other with Members of the Three Star Enseble first rode in a horse-drawn carriage for two laps around the square. After the burning of the effigy, dances were performed by the Burusnyan folk dance troupe from Gelence and the Sons of Idols from Torja.
My name is Sinem Tosun. I am one of the new ESC volunteers of the Green Sun Association.
Leaving everyone I know behind and starting from scratch in a place I have never been before, and on top of that, before I came here, my foot was broken and I was recovering and I was worried that I would have difficulties because I didn't speak English. Even though it's only been a few days since I've been here, I feel much better now.
