The hamlet of Mas de Pré got the ball rolling on Friday May 20, followed the next day by the Mas de Charlot district. For two years, neighborhood meals had not taken place, due to health constraints due to covid. It goes without saying that this year, the neighbors were happy to reconnect with this lovely tradition. Children and adults responded in large numbers to the invitation of the organizers.
The principle remained the same for each district: the municipality lent tables and benches, each participant brought a dish and a drink. For the Mas de Charlot, the wines were donated by the Fabre family, owners of a cellar and inhabitants of the district.
The menus were varied, there was something for everyone, salads, savory and sweet pies, pâtés, cheeses and other homemade dishes. On-site grilling was possible. The mayor, Joël Amalric and several elected officials were present at the two neighbor parties. Marcelou presided over the festival at Mas de Pré, the hamlet where he was born, 100 years ago. The Chœur de village choir was also there. The warm weather reigning supreme, the guests, led by the choristers, sang late in the evening, both at the Mas de Pré and at the Mas de Charlot.
