During our trips we also advertise Aldebrő with wine and postcards.
Each year the members enjoy themselves and often dance.
We often go to theatrical performances to Eger and Budapest.
We celebrate birthdays and name-days, 50 th and 60 th wedding anniversaries and Christmas. Each year we organize ,,Pótszilveszter” where the members have dinner, listen to good music, cabaret and the great atmosphere makes them forget about the greyness of everyday life.
Beside these, informative and educational lectures, conversations, product demonstrations also part of the programme.
