Big crowd for Beaulne Feast

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Coat­i­cook

Coat­i­cook’s Beaulne Mu­seum was filled to the rafters, last Sun­day, for the an­nual Christ­mas Tea fundraiser. The ‘Tea’ is ac­tu­ally a boun­ti­ful feast all pre­pared by the vol­un­teers of the mu­seum and served up with style on both floors of the beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated Chateau Nor­ton. It at­tracted one hun­dred and eighty guests, mostly from Coat­i­cook, but also from other towns. “We had peo­ple from North Hat­ley, Sher­brooke, Ayer’s Cliff and Ma­gog too,” com­mented the Mu­seum’s di­rec­tor and cu­ra­tor, Fran­cois Thierry Toé. Be­sides pro­vid­ing a great way for the lo­cal pop­u­la­tion to kick off the hol­i­day sea­son, the event also raised more than $2,500.

“We’re very happy with the re­sults of our Christ­mas Tea and would like to thank all the vol­un­teers and all the peo­ple who came,” con­cluded Mr. Toé.
