Twinning Meppel – Most
Since the 30th of October 1999 the Dutch city Meppel and the Czech city Most (North-Bohemia) are officially twin cities. In 1997 Rotary Club Meppel initiated a collaboration with Rotary Club Most. On the 30th of October 1999 the mayors of Meppel, mr. C. Bijl, and Most, J. Šulc, signed an agreement for the twinning of Meppel and Most. The local government of Meppel assigned ‘Foundation Twinning Meppel-Most’ with activities to ensure this twinning. Mayors Mr. Joh. C. Westmaas (Meppel) and Ing. V Voska (Most) endorsed this collaboration by signing a new agreement in Most On the 30th of October 2009. Several exchanges and activities have taken place for sports, music, culture, art, education and government.
