On May 8th, children of all ages performed. The older ones melted our hearts with their hard efforts to speak Slovak as best they could, while the younger ones gave our smiles a workout with one word liners and confidence larger than their own size. Cameras were continuously clicking and flashing. As a spectator, I was thoroughly entertained and I realized that these children are their mothers' greatest gift. After the performance, there was plenty of cake, coffee and juice for everyone. The children were free to play and laugh while the adults chatted. The camera was still rolling and our reporter interviewed the children, asking about their roles in the play and what they would like to tell their mom’s on mother’s day.
From the stage equipment, to the play content, to the photography and videotaping, to the cake and coffee... thank you to all the volunteers who made this special day happen.
