After a long delay, the time had finally come. On Thursday, November 4, 2021, the Eurode Friendship Meadow was officially opened right next to the Dutch parking lot of the Eurode Business Center. Elementary school students from KGS Straß and St. Ursula elementary school were present at the ceremony. They are involved in the further development of the Friendship Meadow.
Dr. Fleckenstein, deputy mayor of the city of Herzogenrath, and Wethouder Schneider of the municipality of Kerkrade were present at the opening. Together they unveiled the information board at the meadow. The principals of both elementary schools signed an agreement to promote cross-border cooperation.
Three new trees were also planted and the primary school students hung their own drawings matching the "Eurode Friendship Meadow" along the fence. Furthermore, KGS Straß recited a poem in both German and Dutch. The children of the Basisschool St. Ursula sang a German song.
More fruit trees and shrubs will be planted in the coming years by different elementary school classes. At this site, the children will experience nature together. Together they will build insect hotels and nesting boxes for birds and later harvest and use the fruit together. The meadow also offers space for joint celebrations, such as the International Tree Festival. The Eurode Zweckverband cordially invites everyone to spend time at the cross-border friendship meadow.
