Coat­i­cook’s Fab­u­lous Feast

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

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!
