In the evening, the highest award in the Free State, the Saxon Order of Merit, was awarded to the married couple Marianne and prof. Frank-Michael Engel at the traditional Silberstadt party at the Bergstadtfest. President-Minister Michael Kretschmer took the opportunity to make this recognition in person.
