Laying the foundation stone in Tiefenort

On Thursday, 26 October 2017, one month after we initiated construction, the foundation stone for our nursing centre, Schanzehof, in Tiefenort, Germany, was laid.

 

The day was celebrated in high spirits, with songs, speeches, champagne and local beer, and everyone had plenty of freshly barbecued Thüringer Bratwurst and Rostbrätl with potato salad.

 

A time capsule was moulded into the foundation stone – containing the day’s newspaper, construction sketches and the current coins kindly provided by the participants.

24 children and their teachers from the local kindergarten gave a concert, and, as has become an Exsos tradition, the children then put their handprint in the wet concrete of the foundation stone.

 

The foundation stone will be built into the wall of the nursing centre lobby.
