Laying the foundation stone in Ballstädt

On Friday, 21 June 2019, the foundation stone for our care home, Diakonische Seniorenwohngemeinschaft am Anger, in Ballstädt, Germany was laid. The day was celebrated with high spirits, a service, song, speeches and a bite to eat.

A copper time capsule was moulded into the foundation stone, which contained the newspaper of the day, construction blueprints, a leaflet with the songs from the service and a few coins, Euros as well as Danish kroner, kindly provided by the participants.

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

The foundation stone will be built into the wall of the care home lobby.
