Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

On Sa­tur­day De­cem­ber 15th, a Ch­rist­mas din­ner for the fa­mi­lies of the de­ployed mem­bers was held. This ac­ti­vi­ty is or­ga­ni­zed each year by the cha­plain­cy team and mem­bers of the two Ch­ris­tian com­mu­ni­ties at the base: the Ste- Thé­rèse Ca­tho­lic Church and Em­ma­nuel Pro­tes­tant Cha­pel.

In all, 86 people in­clu­ding 21 chil­dren par­ti­ci­pa­ted in the ac­ti­vi­ty. The buf­fet consis­ted of a French onion soup fol­lo­wed by a LacSaint- Jean tour­tière along with la­sa­gna and a cake for des­sert. Du­ring the eve­ning, Capt Gé­rald Mo­ris­sette played pan flutes as his friend Claude Do­ré played pia­no; their ta­lent and en­ter­tain­ment de­ligh­ted the crowd. Team games were led by Padre Moi­san and Avia­tor Mal­tese while Padre Mor­ris­sette coa­ched the crowd in­to sin­ging. Gifts were dis­tri­bu­ted to chil­dren ages 2 to 14, cour­te­sy of the Ca­nex. Prizes were al­so of­fe­red to teams ba­sed on their score in the games. The mo­ney fun­ding these awards and the ac­ti­vi­ties came from va­rious sources such as the Friends of the Air Force fund and the Ch­ris­tian com­mu­ni­ties. Padre Al­ber­to than­ked all the par­ti­ci­pants and all those who hel­ped in the pre­pa­ra­tion and the smooth run­ning of this ac­ti­vi­ty.
