Coat­i­cook 150th un­der­way

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Staff Coat­i­cook

Twenty-

two yearold Bishop Univer­sity stu­dent Pn­ina-soleil Mar­coux’s de­sign for the logo of the Coat­i­cook 150th an­niver­sary was un­veiled yes­ter­day in a cer­e­mony that marks the launch of the cel­e­bra­tion which will end in 2014 when the ‘Pearl of the Town­ships’ will mark its found­ing. While ev­ery­body agrees that it was formed by carv­ing up Barn­ston, will the mys­tery of its name ori­gin ever be re­solved? Is it from the Iro­quois word

Kr­vak­tak­wak or the Abe­nakis words koa and tegw.

For her ef­fort, Ms. Mar­coux won a $1,250 gift cer­tifi­cate from Rue Prin­ci­pale, the name of the new down­town com­mer­cial district that is in the fi­nal stage of its re­vi­tal­iza­tion ef­fort.

Pn­ina-soleil Mar­coux poses in front of her win­ning logo for Coat­i­cook’s 150th year cel­e­bra­tion.
