Festive fun at Beaulne
Coaticook’s Beaulne Museum had beautiful weather for its mostly outdoors annual event, the Journee Festive, held last Sunday. A family affair, the day included free visits to the museum’s many exhibitions, quilt-making demonstrations and arts and crafts workshops for children. The Harmonie de Coaticook band arrived just after lunch to fill the air with music for an hour and members of Coatic’Art were set up to share their love of painting with young and old alike.
With activities all free, the museum sold homemade food and handmade crafts to raise a little money under a large tent set up outside. The Journee Festive is an activity that fits nicely with the Museum’s Director Francois Toe’s aim to make the Museum more open and accessible to everyone.
