“Our life is a present from God and what we do with it is our present for God”. These were my initial thoughts when I was on my way to the 30th anniversary celebration of the ‘Lifetree’ Large Family Association of Mosonmagyaróvár. “The past 30 years were not only full with programs but also resulted in the forming of a strong, supportive large family community including a large family choir, a dance group and a lot of help for NOE. During these years you represented and showed the values and the benefits of living in large families and having more children who make our lives complete.”
