Coaticook’s Fabulous Feast
There never seems to be enough chairs for the Beaulne Museum’s annual feast, the fundraising Thé de Noel which took place last Sunday. The sumptuous buffet, prepared by a big team of dedicated volunteers, attracted a full house for the event with dining tables and chairs set up on every floor of the beautifully decorated mansion: the Chateau Arthur Osmore Norton. Seen here are (l. to r.) honorary presidents Johanne
Provencher and Rene Larochelle, museum Board president Roch Letourneau, and mayor Bertrand Lamoureux. The Beaulne Museum of Coaticook is delighted to present the exhibition “Guess who’s coming to town”... Collections of Santa Clauses from the 13th of December 2014 to the 4th of January 2015. The tradition of Santa Claus came from Europe and spread through all Europe, North America and in every the corners of the world. Saint Nicolas, Father Christmas, Santa Claus, Père Noel, etc.
Whatever his name might be, he was inspired by “Julenisse”, a Nordic Elf who came to earth in order to offer presents to the Scandinavian children during the winter festivities. These days, Santa Claus is the emblem of Christmas for all children worldwide.
This exhibit, which contains a varied category of Santa Clauses, wants to inform as well as renew our knowledge on the subject and maybe bring back some childhood memories during this festive atmosphere with all the Christmas decorations.
Do not miss! Come one, come all!
