|What is RVP (Roser-Veil-Ploucquet)?||RVP is no specified form of society, neither is it an association.

|Do you have to go to the reunion?||No! The beauty of the reunions lies, among other things, in their voluntary character, aside from the small children, because they go where the parents go …!
Many of the young people go for years without attending a reunion and then by chance pay a non-committal visit.
|Everything costs money. Is it not spoken about?||Of course! There is no member fee however voluntary contributions are a delight for the treasurers! Emerging expenditures are allocated. A certain sum is specified at the reunion as a guidline which those in attendance can go by during the collection, but don’t have to.|
