On Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at 12:30 p.m. at the Borough of Charleroi municipal building, 338 Fallowfield Avenue, Charleroi, local officials welcomed the arrival of Mayor Paul Magnette and officials from Charleroi, Belgium as they visited officials in their sister city of Charleroi, PA.
This is not the first time these two towns from different countries who own the same name have had official historic visits to one another's locations. Back in 1982, Charleroi, PA officials traveled to Charleroi, Belgium to tour their city after the Pennsylvania borough received a visit from the Belgium mayor and officials.
The agenda included a quick tour of the municipal building, which was followed by a luncheon event at the Riverhouse Café in Charleroi. During the luncheon, a key to the city was presented to Mayor Magnette. After the luncheon, there was a tour of World Kitchen, Charleroi's largest employer.
