For over 20 years, citizens of Gonzales, have been exchanging visits with the citizens of Meylan, France. Gonzales and Meylan are “twin cities”— cities in geographically and politically distinct areas who have formed cooperative agreements to promote cultural ties.

The Gonzales Committee on Cultural Affairs (GCCA) organizes the biannual trips to France and plans the activities and finds host families for the biannual visits to Louisiana from citizens of Meylan, France.

Karen Hatcher, president of GCCA, has announced that the tentative dates for the upcoming visit from the French are Oct. 10-17, 2013. A few of the activities being planned include tailgating at the LSU/Florida football game, attending the French Festival in Lafayette, spending a day on the river with the Gonzales Boat Club, and a day touring in New Orleans.

GCCA’s next potluck supper\planning meeting is Thursday, March 21 at 6 p.m. at the Gonzales Fire Department on Orice Roth Road. If you are interested in getting involved or would like more information about GCCA, please contact Karen Hatcher at (225) 644-6681.
