On April 17, a theatrical concert dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the announcement of the All-Union shock Komsomol construction site - Vostochny Port was held in the Primorsky Territory. The event took place on the stage of the House of Culture in the village of Wrangel. The concert was organized with the support of the Vostochny Port Foundation, which implements the Historical Heritage and Veterans social development programs. The heroes of the holiday were yesterday's Komsomol members - young men and women, who came from all over the Soviet Union to the shores of Wrangel Bay on Komsomol vouchers and at the call of their hearts.

On April 17, 1971, the banner of the All-Union shock Komsomol construction, announced by the decree of the Central Committee of the Komsomol, was raised over the first buildings and future berths of the new Soviet port. On the same day, at a rally, the Komsomol members swore an oath of loyalty to the goal for which they came here from all over the vast country - to build their own port and city.

“You found your vocation in everyday affairs - you built roads and piers, as well as residential buildings and other infrastructure facilities in the village of Wrangel. At the same time, they believed that you were very lucky, because such ports are built infrequently, - said Vadim Baybak, Managing Director of Vostochny Port JSC, President of Vostochny Port Foundation in his welcoming speech to the first builders. “The Komsomol members were the decisive striking force of Vostochny, and today we tell you with a sense of deep respect that what you have done can be safely called a feat!”

An important moment of the holiday was the solemn ceremony of rewarding the first builders with letters of thanks "For an active life position, Komsomol enthusiasm and in honor of the 50th anniversary of the All-Union shock Komsomol construction site - Vostochny Port".

Thematic design of the event in the style of Komsomol romance, the memories of the participants in the grandiose events that took place on the eastern shores of the Nakhodka Bay half a century ago, words of gratitude to the people whose names were put in gold in the history of the construction of the Port, tastefully selected creative numbers - all this allowed the audience, guests of the holiday to be transported in the early 70s on the coast of Wrangel Bay. Here, at the foot of the majestic seaside hills, the Great History was being made, by the forces of the first builders, the buildings and piers of the most powerful giant port - the pride of a great power, grew before our eyes.

“Construction in the early years and in the first months literally gained momentum. We were preparing the first start-up complex for commissioning, but, in fact, we must give life to a new port and a new village, - shared his memories of the first director of the Directorate of the port under construction, Viktor Yatsenko. - In a short time, the Vostochny Port in Wrangel erected power substations, centralized heating, power supply, water supply and sewerage systems, built comfortable residential buildings, shops, a hospital, a cultural center, schools, kindergartens, catering points and other social infrastructure. Many of them still serve the residents of the village, being in the service of Wrangel's city-forming enterprise - Vostochny Port JSC. A good start was given, and the present generations continue and develop these wonderful deeds! "

By the way, many Port dynasties come from the All-Union Shock Komsomol construction site. Because, having built the berths, the builders did not want to say goodbye to this handsome port and, having received the necessary specialty, they became members of the collective of Eastern port workers. Many of those first are now on a well-deserved rest, passing the baton to their children and grandchildren.

For a significant event - the 50th anniversary of the All-Union Shock Komsomol Construction Project - Vostochny Port JSC decorated the streets of Wrangel with bright red red banners with themed holiday symbols. Tomorrow, on April 17, from 12:17 to XNUMX:XNUMX, the port workers will hold a large-scale celebration of the anniversary date - guests and residents of the microdistrict will have a bright creative program, a children's show of animators, contests, treats, a sea of ​​positive emotions and good mood.
