Three Cape Bre­ton projects get fund­ing

Money raised from sale of Aca­dian flag li­cence plates


Three Cape Bre­ton com­mu­ni­ties were among those to share in fund­ing from the Vive l’Acadie Com­mu­nity Fund for Aca­dian and fran­co­phone cul­ture.

Le Cen­tre com­mu­nau­taire Étoile de l’Acadie in Syd­ney re­ceived $1,500 for an

artis­tic day camp and a day to celebrate Aca­dian Her­itage while La So­ciété Saint-Pierre in Chéti­camp got $2,050 for the open­ing gala to celebrate the 40th edi­tion of Fes­ti­val de l’Es­caou­ette. La Pi­casse, Cen­tre com­mu­nau­taire cul­turel in Petit-de-Grat re­ceived $1,550 to celebrate the her­itage of Gon­zague.

The money for these projects come from money col­lected from the sale and re­newal of more than 600 Aca­dian flag li- cence plates be­tween April 1, 2014 and March 31, 2015. About $20,200 has been raised for a wide va­ri­ety of com­mu­nity cul- tu­ral projects.

“The Vive l’Acadie Com­mu­nity Fund of­fers peo­ple an op­por­tu­nity to con­trib­ute to projects in their com­mu­nity and show their pride in be­ing

Aca­dian,” said Lisette Au­coin-Bour­geois, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of La So­ciété Saint-Pierre. “The So­ciété Saint-Pierre is very proud to be the or­ga­ni­za­tion within the Aca­dian Com­mu­nity of Chéti­camp to be given the

re­spon­si­bil­ity of or­ga­niz­ing a spe­cial pro­ject for the en­joy­ment of peo­ple who live there. Our 40th edi­tion of the Fes­ti­val de l’Es­caou­ette Gala is sure to please.”
