This year's general assembly of the Cercle Athlétique Dudelange took place on Friday March 6th at the Centre Hild.
The new Mayor of Dudelange, Dan Biancalana, was present as special guest. A lot of CAD athletes, trainers, members and friends were present. Special honours came to Jean Lorang, who was awarded the "CAD Plaquette", the highest award for CAD members. The last award of this kind went to Jean Engel, back in 1983. Jean has joined the club in 1966, almost 50 years ago, and has been a real workhorse, in the most positive sense of the word, a leader and a driver ever since then.
Furthermore, Jean-Marie Kraus, who resigned as President from the club in 2004 after more then 10 years at this position, has been named Honorary President, joining Jean Engel, Alex Bodry, Dr. Roland Draut and Georges Foehr in this restricted group.
After a couple of speaches and reports, several prizes have been attributed to athletes with special merits.
The evening was then closed with a delicious spaghetti and a big tombola.
