As the city Oldenburg in Holstein decided to be twin towns with Blain, it was clear to everybody that this project would be built on a wide social base. The goal was to get the people closer to each other by meeting, exchanging and communicating. That's why local residents from different fields found together to work in a committee for twin towning.
The committee organizes events and mutual visits. Linking clubs and associations of both cities is an important matter as well. During regular meetings the latest topics are discussed and future activities are planned.
At the moment the committee consists of 18 persons. They represent the self-government, the city government, the schools, the sportclubs and the associations.There are also private persons in the committee who are interested in the project for various reasons.
Active lately: L. Beck, U. Bender, S. Both, K. Depenau, C. Holtz, J. Junkersdorf, M. Kümmel, M. Lafrique, S.Mody, J. Saba, M. Scheel, G. Schmidt, A. Schönrock, H. Struck, Bürgermeister M. Voigt, A. Wendt, M. Wilms, R. Wulff.
