Saint-Jean Baptiste Day 2009


by L.G. de Tonnancour

This year again, Centennial Hall was the meeting place for the Fête nationale du Québec in Beaconsfield. The sky was perfectly clear and live musicians filled the air with traditional Quebecois music. The old white building was decorated for the occasion with blue and white flags and on the grounds, sheltered under small kiosks, artisans of all trades were selling their wares or demonstrating their art. There was a great deal to see. Alice Hamilton, Ailish O’keeffe, Sylvia Solomon and Louise G. de Tonnancour of the Beaconsfield Hooking Crafters Guild gave rug hooking demonstrations throughout the event. It was a wonderful day filled with laughter and friendly conversation.
