You are the heirs of their glorious deeds” – pointed out Alexander Gennadyevich.
The festival set off the “1000 kind deeds” action to take place at all educational institutions of Penza region. “Today, we launch a series of events devoted to the anniversary of Penza region which will make our region “a region of kind deeds”.
