What a year, the anniversary year 2022! Colourful and varied from January to December – here comes the review
1 Flags at the town halls in Neu-Anspach and Šentjur to celebrate 15 years of diplomatic relations between Germany and Slovenia.
2 There is so much France in Neu-Anspach – the Weddigen bookshop is just one of many places in the Kleeblattstadt that have a connection to France.
3 At the Europe Evening, Christophe Braouet illuminates the special relationship between Germany and France.
4 At the Europe Day of the Hochtaunuskreis, the association together with the Europa-AG of the Adolf-Reichwein-Schule represent the town of Neu-Anspach and its town twinning.
5 Hooray – we meet in Saint-Florent-sur-Cher for the citizens’ meeting and the trinational youth project!
6 Brigitte Glaser presents her book “Kaiserstuhl”, which thematically fits perfectly with the 40th anniversary of the Franco-German jumelage – a cooperation with bookshop Weddigen.
7 Summer break! And in the background, preparations are underway for the anniversary week in September and October.
8 “Let the “boules” (petanque metall balls) roll!” At the annual boules/pétanque tournament, experienced boulists and curious beginners meet for a passionate hunt for the “little pig” (= the so called “cochonnet”, the target ball).
9 For one week, 62 caricatures on Franco-German friendship are on display in the windows of selected shops – a cooperation with the trade association to celebrate the jumelage.
10 Delegates from the twin towns attend the anniversary celebration in the community centre.
11 The friends in Sentjur, Thalgau and Saint-Florent also ring in the Advent season with Christmas and St. Nicholas markets.
12 A visit to the St. Nicholas Market: Reinhold Friedl, Lukas Friedl and Johann Utzmeier travelled from Thalgau to offer Austrian delicacies to eat and drink in the tent. Along the way, the guests learn more about Neu-Anspach’s other twin towns.
