Hundreds head to Beaulne’s Open House
People of all ages came from near and far to attend the Beaulne Museum’s Open House, held last Sunday in Coaticook. “It was a great success and about four hundred people attended,” said Francois Thierry Toé, the museum’s director and curator.
Free activities were going on throughout the day, including the inauguration of the Pioneer’s Garden and an archeological dig behind the museum. Five historical figures were unveiled in the Pioneer’s Garden, bringing the total of pioneers on the Pioneer Trail to 22. They were: Jeanne Bachand, Matthew H. Cochrane, Marie Marthe Paquin Crete, Wilfred Morache and Thomas Van Dyke.
There was also an exhibition of the works of the young children who attended art workshops at the museum throughout the year, drawing the young artists and their families back on site for the occasion. Artists from Coatic’ Art were also on hand doing demonstrations.
