By Bill HarbyUpon their 50th wedding anniversary, Pierrette and Lucien Erard received an unexpected surprise: a big bouquet of flowers from the government of the town of Neuchâtel. “It’s always nice to receive a gift, especially when it’s unexpected, and from the government of my hometown”, said Madame Erard. When they turn 18, they are received by the city council at a ceremony presented by a town official, according to Voirol. When Neuchâtel residents retire, they also get a bouquet. And we send a toast to the town of Neuchâtel for their thoughtfulness.
