She continues to be very active in the association, especially in guided tours. She was appointed Honorary Member in January 2013.

Among the many activities of the association, the reception of tourists occupies a privileged place.

This space offers cultural events, but also a Point Information boutique. The association has provided the hosting service on a weekly basis on a voluntary basis, in addition to the services of the tourist animation agent, until the end of 2013.
