On December 27, 2018, the Youth Center “Fakel” celebrated the New Year. 18 guys and girls came over to the party which was hosted by Stas T., a member of the Club. Stas did a great job!
The celebration began with Serghei, the Club’s instructor, saying a few introductory words and showing a video recap of the most interesting moments of 2018. Then guys played a few games. The Brain Ring turned out to be the most interesting. It was prepared by Stas and was computer interactive. The question categories varied depending on the level of difficulty and had New Year’s and Christmas themes, music, movies, and a mysterious “cat in a bag” category. There were not only questions, but also tasks like reciting a poem, singing a song, a carol, etc. The game took about an hour to play. The winning team comprising of Andrei, Sasha, Katya, Victor, and Peter was awarded a box of tangerines!
Guys also played lotto with 6 prizes awarded to the winners, as well as other games. There were some breaks for snacks between the games. The festive table carried salads, sandwiches, cookies, fruits and juices, and homemade pancakes!
This year, guys received gifts from the Secret Santa. The gifts were handed out by Serghei and came along with the letters addressed to each recipient. It could be seen that the messages put in the letters hit the mark! Guys read their letters in the silence and took some time to reflect.
The party ended up with the movie. Guys watched The Billionaire, a movie based on the real story of a teenager who, starting with selling artifacts in online games and selling chestnuts was able to open a successful business and earned billions of dollars.
The whole idea of the party was not only to create a cheerful atmosphere but also to bring guys together, to make their group even more cohesive and connected.
We thank all our donors and friends of the Youth Center “Fakel” for their continuous support throughout the year 2018 and making lives of these young people more hopeful!
