children in September. Thus, there will be a worthy object in Zalesny where it
will be possible to send children and not worry about them. Tonight, when the
children return from schools and kindergartens, parents return from work, we

will all work”, explained the chairman of the Committee for Children and Youth

means giving life, that's exactly what they decided to name the club”, said A.

could only dream about such conditions. “It is important that the residents of
the Zalesny do not have to take children far. There is a school, there is a
kindergarten, and now the teenage club. Children will be able to spend their
extra time and reveal their talents”, the Mayor shared his opinion. He also

club's premises to the MBU “Podrostok” on terms of the gratuitous lease for a
period of 3 years.

create conditions for children. I hope that this will become a good tradition
for our investors and developers to do something more than what is required”,
said the Mayor of Kazan.
