A Golden October Limo Drive Around The City

November 5, 2012, 12:00 4308 Author: Yulia Akhtman, Darya Polovets klubok.org.ua 35 children from the 'Orientir' scientific-rehabilitation boarding center took part in the excursion drive by limousines to the Children's Railway

As autumn comes you never stop admiring its beauty and greatness. You watch how the foliage changes its color day by day from green into gold-orange, then red, terra-cotta and into brown in the end. Walking down familiar streets, feeling the fallen folia under your feet, you can smell a kind of special, distinctive ravishing scent of autumn which you can't stop breathing in.

To make an ordinary day for the pupils of the 'Orientir' rehabilitation boarding center (a former boarding-school for starblind children) as special as possible, the 'Art-lim Zaporozhye" company, one specializing in car rentals for the VIP transportation, presented the kids an unforgettable drive around the city by four splash-up limousines.

35 six and seven-grade pupils and their supervisors could take part in this event. Inside the cabins of such autos as Chrysler C300, Lincoln Town Car, Lincoln Navigator and a unique Rolls Royce Retro designed a' la 30-s, each could feel himself a VIP. A leather salon, convertible top, glass ceiling, changeable neon backlighting added a peculiar charm to this drive. There was a holiday atmosphere. It was so nice to watch kids' genuine laughs and joy! All the way long the children seemed to be really amazed and could hardly believe that was not a dream. No doubt, that adventure will be carved for long in their minds!

All in all, who would fancy a dialog with the nature without exploration of the flora and fauna? After a drive around the city the kids were brought to the Children's Railway by P.R. Popovich. There are the botanical garden, terrarium, aquarium and the zoo on the territory of this entertainment park. Thanks to the head of the complex, who kindly made this visit for us free off charge, kids could marvel at rare species of creepy-crawlies, fishes, birds and other exotic beings.

The “Happy Child” charity foundation is grateful to:

The manager of the VIP Car Rentals company 'Art-lim Zaporozhye';

The head of the Children’s Railway - Chernenkiy Michail Ivanovich;

We thank the 'Orientir' administration scientific-rehabilitation boarding center for cooperation.
