Kerwasburschen Buckenhofen celebrate their tenth anniversary

They are still at the forefront when it comes to setting up the kerwabaum: Georg Bauer and Michael Dittrich. At the tenth anniversary of the Buckenhofener Kerwasburschen, the current leadership of the association around Stephan Schneider and Steffen Kneitz appointed both of them honorary members.

It is to be owed to the two men that one can celebrate in Buckenhofen now for the twelfth time the Zeltkerwa on the festival area between sport home and sluice. Although the then independent municipality of Buckenhofen had only chapels and no church, for a good 100 years – from the end of the 19th century onwards – it was a place of worship. Century until the end of the 20. Century the Kirchweih after old tradition. Then it slowly fell asleep, until 22 years ago Georg Bauer took the initiative and revived the custom again.

The kermis tree stood in front of the inn “Zur Sonne” and the approximately 30 Kerwasburschen were only a loose union. Things went well for twelve years, but then differences arose.

Bad Bruckenau: Sports bowlers want to go to the station

In the next 14 days there should be a discussion between the representatives of the city Bad Bruckenau and the sport bowling club (SKV). That promised 2. Mayor Jurgen Pfister (PWG) and 3. Mayor Dieter Seban (CSU) at the end of the information event to which the bowlers had invited in the bowling alley of the Sinnflut thermal baths.

Due to the upcoming renovations, the bowlers will have to give up these rooms in the foreseeable future. The search for a new domicile has been driving them for years – so far without results. Now movement is to come into the thing. Chairman Bernd Hormann, together with Katja Niklaus, presented the previous efforts and current considerations as well as the activities of the club.

It is now three years ago that the board of the SKV Bad Bruckenau was surprised by the planned construction measures of the Sinnflut Therme and the associated termination of the lease agreement. The SKV should leave its long-time and traditional home of the bowling alley when the reconstruction begins. “With this news, a time full of promises, hope, confidence, but also a time full of setbacks, uncertainty up to hopelessness began”, Hormann looked back.

Youth fire department practices for a whole 24 hours

Youth fire department practices for a whole 24 hours

With blue lights and siren, three emergency vehicles of the Michelau fire department turn onto the yard of a Schwurbitz company at about 2 p.m. A few minutes before, an emergency call was received that a man had been crushed under a concrete girder. Now everything has to happen very quickly. The strikingly young firefighters support the load with lifting bags and a short time later the man is freed.
Although the man no longer has a head, he survived the operation – because he is only a training dummy. Just as the 19 firefighters are not yet fully trained firefighters. That they can help soon already with genuine employments, to it the 24-hour exercise contributes, which the youth fire-brigade completed recently.

Service sport, food supply, care of the equipment and altogether six employments belonged to it. “However, they don’t know in advance what and how many operations are coming”, says Frank Spitzenpfeil, deputy youth officer. “Since some of them want to work for a professional fire department later on, we would like to show them with this exercise how a professional fire department works.”
