Lecce, Italy - July 2017 - On July 6, during the traditional Feast of the Salesian Oratories of Puglia, the beach of Torre Chianca became the "Lido Don Bosco" for a day. Many oratories were present: Brindisi, Molfetta, Martano, Corigliano d'Otranto, Foggia, Santeramo in Colle, Bari and Andria for a total of one thousand children who spent a day of sharing and talks, in happiness and friendship in the spirit of Don Bosco. There were many games played in the water and on the beach, moments of entertainment with music, singing and dancing. All the children of the oratories present were able to present the theme of the various Summer Camps with their own anthem, and participated with enthusiasm, fair play and the desire to have fun. Many thanks went to the animators and referees of the Lecce Oratory. During the final prayer, on the seashore itself, the Director of Lecce, Fr Pierluigi Lanotte, wanted to remind all the children of Syria living the experience of the Summer Camps in this period, invoking the protection of Mary Help of Christians and praying for peace. The greeting and blessing of the Provincial, Fr Pasquale Cristiani, ended the day's events.
