Full church for pageant

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

Last Satur­day, ev­ery pew in Stanstead’s Sacre Coeur Church was full as res­i­dents came out in full force to take part in a lo­cal va­ri­ety show that had per­form­ers as young as two years of age! Or­ga­nized by Stanstead res­i­dent Chris­tian Ruf, the show fea­tured a chil­dren’s choir, an adult’s choir, skits, pi­ano per­for­mances, and sev­eral vi­o­lin per­for­mances in­clud­ing one by a two-year old. Lo­cal pro­fes­sional mu­si­cian Michael Goudreau even played a few songs.

In a nice touch, a pow­erpoint pre­sen­ta­tion at the end, com­plete with pho­to­graphs of the in­di­vid­u­als, gave credit to all the per­form­ers as well as those who worked be­hind the scenes, such as Michel Vail­lant, to put on the show.

The vol­un­teer group who dec­o­rate the church for Christ­mas ev­ery year even ‘got in on the act’, dec­o­rat­ing the church a week early with arches and gi­ant snowflakes to add to the fes­tive at­mos­phere of the event.
