From the northernmost Croatian city we run back to Nedelišće through vineyards and forests and come to the cycling festival in Aton and in Mesap. ” ističu organizatori.Panamura is not only a race but also an investment in the future and tourism.For years, Međimurje has been known as the county and location with the most investment in cycling tourism, from the development of hotel accommodation, private and apartment, all the way to tracing and development of trails, roads and bicycle roads. By investing in cycling tourism, Međimurje is placed on the map as an interesting destination for transit tourists to the Adriatic, and at the same time attracts new guests and provides new content.

Paralelno s biciklistima natjecat će se i e-Bike biciklisti na biciklima tipa “pedalec” koji potpomažu vozaču, naravno u vlastitoj kategoriji. E-Bike tipovi bicikala, kao i turizam orijentiran na takav tip vozila na mala vrata ulazi na turističko tržište europe, ali zasigurno će biti važan faktor u odabiru destinacije budućih cikloturista.From Nedelišće to Štrigova, along the Mura from Sv. Martin to Mursko Središće, through vineyards and forests, the Panamura Marathon invites amateur cyclists, recreational cyclists, professionals to pedal and experience this professionally organized marathon and see for themselves what their limits are. But it is more important than the competition to show the direction of development when we talk about cycling tourism and how tourism can be developed on the continent throughout the year.last_img read more

Scouts honor soldiers’ memories

first_img“I feel sad,” he said. “But I am happy they are with God.” Oscar Miranda, 80, of Whittier, asked Begg if he could have two flags for the graves of his brothers. The Navy veteran was at the cemetery to visit his wife’s grave, but saw what the Santamaria-Konos were doing and wanted flags for the graves of two brothers, who had served in World War II, and were buried nearby. “I don’t want anyone to forget them, and I don’t want anyone to forget me,” he said. “It brings me to tears that they are gone.” phil.drake@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2110160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Their youngest child, Patrice, 2, wore Begg’s floppy Scout leader hat and ran around the cemetery trying to keep up with the others. “It is really important to respect our veterans and for us to show our kids that you need to do a little service and give back a little,” Suzanne Santamaria-Kono said. “We get so involved in our own lives that we don’t come out for the little things.” The 500 flags were donated by the cemetery. The elder Alvaro Santamaria-Kono pounded a tiny stake into the ground to make a hole for the flags and the kids placed the flags in the dirt. The La Puente family hoped to have the job done within two hours and then attend a neighbor’s birthday party. Steven Santamaria-Kono said he was grateful to the veterans. ROWLAND HEIGHTS – What started off Sunday as a Scouting project turned into a family affair. It wasn’t meant to be that way. But when some of the volunteers that Scoutmaster Nancy Begg was expecting from Boy Scout Troop 791 failed to show up to help put flags on graves at Queen of Heaven Cemetery and Mortuary in Rowland Heights, Begg went ahead with the handful that did: the Santamaria-Kono family. The Santamaria-Konos have three children in Scouts: Tasha, 7, is a Brownie, and Steven, 9, and Alvaro, 10 are in Cub Scout Pack 791 in La Puente. They had also been invited by Begg to help place flags at various gravesites. “I want the Scouts to learn the meaning of Memorial Day,” said Begg, 56, whose father served in World War II. last_img read more
