A Can’t Miss Event! Exceptional AWG-LR July 4th Celebration!

July 4th Celebration with Lafayette’s Legacy to America as Backdrop, Sunday 2 July at 11h00 onwards for picnic at Castries Château  34160 Castries.

This year, an Independence Day celebration like none other before awaits AWG-LR members!

We can thank our very own Bernadette, who beautifully spearheaded the establishment of fruitful cultural relations with the Friends of the Castle of Castries back in January with the organization of a tour of the Castle of Castries, which a number of AWGLR members enjoyed with their family and friends. Since then, AWG has begun collaborating on a very special commemorative celebration to take place in Castries, on the weekend of July 1–2. 

Two historical societies, the Mission du Centenaire de la Première Guerre Mondiale and Les Amis du Château de Castries have invited AWG-LR to this weekend’s commemoration of the historical bond between France and the United States of America. The Marquis de Lafayette’s famous voyage across the Atlantic with French militia and troops to help General George Washington and his Continental Army troops during the American Revolution marked the beginning of this unique friendship.

For our annual 4th of July celebration, AWG-LR has decided to participate in this fabulous weekend commemoration. We have been invited to attend this unique and festive weekend as distinguished Franco-American guests with our families and friends, whatever the nationality or origin.
