The badges of honor "Parental Glory of the City of Moscow" were presented to 21 Moscow families on the stage of the State Kremlin Palace in a solemn atmosphere.
Among them - and two families from the SEAD: parents of eight children Daria and Dmitry Frolov and raising six children Svetlana and Sergei Panin.
“The fact that we were chosen to receive the badge of honor came as a surprise,” says Svetlana Panina. - For us, this is an expression of great trust on the part of the authorities and our council. Older children understand that this is a major achievement for all family members. For kids, this is just a solemn event, for which mom and dad are getting ready very much. We hope this award will be inherited as an experience of a friendly, loving family.
A festive concert in the Kremlin Palace, which brought together 5,700 mothers with many children in the capital, opened a month of events dedicated to the celebration of Mother's Day. Mayor of the city Sergey Sobyanin also addressed the mothers:
- Mom is the most important and most precious thing for each of us. It is our duty to always remember and take care of our mothers. And the Mother's Day holiday is a great opportunity to say "thank you" to all mothers, grandmothers and wives in the world.
Young winners of the city Marathon of family creativity "Moscow family: the path to success" performed on the stage together with the pop stars. The guys were preparing for their main concert for almost six months - they rehearsed and performed at the largest venues in the city with their concert numbers.
- This is the first time I speak in the Kremlin. She sang with Anastasia Makeeva, - shared Natasha Pochinkova from the SEAD. - I, of course, was scared, but I am happy, because this performance in the Kremlin is what we all went for so long. I am very grateful to the talent marathon for this experience. I had a goal - to enter a music school. And I got a second family - these are the guys who participated in the talent marathon. This is the best thing that has happened to me in the last five years.
Also noted were the winners of the "Lady-Mom 2017" marathon - women who not only successfully raise children, but also perfectly realize themselves in work or hobbies. And in the final more than 400 people - all the participants of the concert - sang the song "Hallelujah of Love" from the rock opera "Juno and Avos".
