150th anniversary concert on 1 July

On Saturday 1 July, we joined forces with the Harmonie l’Union de La Rochette to organise a concert entitled “Music for cardboard”. The event marked the celebration of our 150th anniversary and the official inauguration of the Musée St-Jean, as well as a number of cultural activities linked to the history of the cardboard mills organised by the municipality. 🎶

To mark the occasion, we exhibited some of the photos from our previous exhibition at the media library, including previously unseen shots of the town, our factory and the cardboard manufacturing process. Our film was also shown before the concert. 🎞️

We would like to thank the Harmonie l’Union for their magnificent musical performance, and the UCAR for organising the refreshment stand. Our thanks also go to David Ates, Mayor of Valgelon-La-Rochette, and Jacky Donjon, Deputy Mayor of La Rochette, for making it possible to organise these convivial events, which were open to the public and enabled us to share the emblematic history and close links between our factory and the commune.

History and music in the service of cardboard!
