Coronation newsletter 10th - July 2022


220701 draft July 2
Welcome to our 10th Coronation Newsletter. Not coincidentally, this one appears during the week of July 3 to 10. In other words, we are now just under one year from Coronation Week from July 2 to July 9, 2023. Things are moving fast. In this newsletter you will notice that the Coronation preparations are becoming more and more concrete. From now on, the promotion for the Coronation will focus more and more on outside Greater Tongres. Social media can play a role in this. We are also counting on you to share our messages and to be part of the ambassadors of the celebration that every inhabitant of Greater Tongres has been looking forward to for seven years.
We wish you much reading pleasure.

This is appropriate because they have committed to begging all 6 Coronation Magazines in Greater Tongres. At the April meeting, they all received fluorescent vests to safely beg for the magazines. These fluorescent vests also feature the Coronation logo. This way they can also advertise the Coronation. Great anyway! Should you have
