Since 1992, the commune of Saint-Sylvestre-sur-Lot has been twinned with that of Liepvre, an Alsatian commune in Haut-Rhin located at the entrance to Val d’Argent. 32 years since these two villages and their inhabitants entered into a pact of friendship and fraternity. From Wednesday May 8 to Sunday May 12, 49 Colieuvres (residents of Liepvre) came to meet their Saint-Sylvestrois twins, to renew this pact of affection and attachment.

A brotherly friendship

Visit to Bonaguil Castle, lunch at Cancon Lake, lively evening at the village hall, relaxing afternoon at the Saint-Sylvestre stadium and of course day and evening with host families, everything was organized by the municipality and Jean-Pierre Babiel, president of the twinning committee, and their teams to best welcome these Alsatian friends. The evening of May 12 was reserved for reunions around official speeches, the giving of gifts, a tasty meal prepared by caterer Jacques Sansou, and an evening hosted by Pascal Chatel. In turn, in front of all the twins gathered, Yann Bihouée, first councilor of the commune, Denis Petit, mayor of Lièpvre, Jean-Pierre Babiel, president of the New Year’s Eve committee, then Christiane Forchard, president of the Liepvre committee, took the floor to celebrate this fraternal friendship which has lasted for several decades, although with a face-to-face break for 6 years during the covid period. Interventions which each recalled the beautiful story of this twinning which crosses the years with always as much enthusiasm, generosity, benevolence, signs of the friendship which unites them all on the occasion of these meetings. The “Guest Book” which was passed around from table to table during the meal must have been filled with words sealing this reunion, these bonds of friendship created for so long and maintained so that the story is beautiful: “each episode has a end but the next one still has just as much interest and flavor.” In 2 years, it is in Alsace, in Liepvre, that they will meet again to once again seal this beautiful fraternity through new exchanges, new meetings.
