Twin cities for 30 years
We took part in the celebration,from May 10 to 13, as guests, together with BRAVO and members of the city council. Mayor François Werner with his wife also went to Oerlinghausen for the occasion.
Our German friends showed how good they are at welcoming and entertaining guests and we want to thank them sincerely for those unforgettable moments of sheer friendship and sharing, which strengthen our vision of the European Union.
