Fes­tive fun at Beaulne

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Coat­i­cook

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.

Coat­i­cook’s Beaulne Mu­seum held their an­nual Journee Fes­tive, last Sun­day, to en­tice peo­ple near and far to visit the mu­seum.
