Gertrud buhl would have preferred to award many more community burghers this evening than she ultimately did. The breitbrunn mayor told the invited guests at the awards evening, which was held at the community center immediately after the council's final meeting of the year, that in her community she feels she is part of a large family that sticks together throughout the year "to the best of their ability" to take care of each other.
"Our community thrives on the fact that citizens live and work in it who are actively involved in the community." this can be seen as praise and appreciation for all breitbrunner,although some burghers stood out in the past years,who on thursday evening (21. December) were honored separately by the mayor.
In various categories (school; sports; family and social affairs), buhl highlighted the achievements of young and old members of the community. According to the mayor, ursula and hermann teufel's commitment is unusual: the couple has been caring for the river together "day after day" for 15 years ursula teufel's mother, who is now 89 years old and in great need of help. Here, too, buhl deliberately included those who were not on the list of honorees, but who nevertheless sacrifice themselves in a similar way for their relatives or friends: "the commitment of those who are often involved for decades takes place in silence, unaccompanied by photographers and reporters", buhl said. Often, the carers do not want to make a fuss about their work, which is why this award is a recognition of their strenuous work in a private, family environment.
