« The village, after the dam's construction, has lost several of its elements which were the forces of the Community. But the village has kept its traditions of perseverance, tenacity, attachment to the country. Thanks to these qualities, thanks to its establishment, thanks to the beauty of the site, thanks to the lake, thanks to a complement of population, the village will regain an active life where youngs and olders will cohabit in an harmonious development of communal animation. »

(from "Monographie des Salles-sur-Verdon", told by M. Simian François,
Les Salles-sur-Verdon Elementary School's retired teacher, text written in 1993)
