Lovely meeting in Jonquière
WORD FROM THE SECRETARY-TREASURER
After our wonderful weekend in Jonquière for our 22nd fami-ly reunion it would be appropriate to thanks those who made this reunion a success. First of all, a big thank you to Pierre Forest and Carmen Boulianne who knew how to put in the foreground the Acadian presence in Saguenay, the local fla-vors of the domain Le Cajeot without forgetting the Eucha-ristic celebration which was singularly distinguished by the presence of a priest Father Azarias Fortin, a pastor Douglas Schroder-Tabah, the choir Les amis d'Évangéline of the Regroupement acadien du Saguenay-Lac St-Jean.
We can't pass over in silence the work of the staff of the Delta Saguenay hotel, in particular Émilie Simard and Réjean Laberge who took care of the smallest details during the 3 days of our meeting.
About thirty people had registered, mainly from Quebec, Ontario and the United States.
We look forward to seeing you in Southwest Nova Scotia in August 2024.
Denis Forest, Secretary-Treasurer
Delta Hotel, Saguenay, Quebec
