Meanwhile, Lucia had Berger, organized since 2009, carolers actions in Öflingen and forwards, determined the preliminary result of donations. Curious, carolers and companion pointed their ears, as Lucia Berger announced: ".. You've collected over the three days 6560 € I thank sincerely I hope you enjoyed it and you are again in 2012."
