120 peo­ple come to­gether this past Satur­day, Aug. 20 at the so­cial cen­tre in Glen Robertson.

The Laroc­ques came in from the West coast across Canada to the East coast. The four gen­er­a­tions of the fam­ily ranged from 20 days old to 96 years old. Amaz­ing!

Every­one pitched in for a potluck lun­cheon and the mu­sic was pro­vided by fam­ily mem­bers who are mu­si­cians. How won­der­ful to bring all those fam­ily mem­bers to­gether! A true fam­ily af­fair. JeanLu­cien must have been a very proud man! Need­less to say, a lot of fun was had!

Also, on an­other happy note, Berthe Larocque cel­e­brated her 84th birth­day on Sun­day, Aug. 21.

Happy Birth­day, Berthe and may you have many more filled with health and hap­pi­ness.

I be­lieve our “once again Grandma” Linda Lav­i­gne is back from a well- de­served va­ca­tion.

Hope you had a great time, Linda. Look­ing for­ward to see­ing you and those pic­tures of Scar­lett El­iz­a­beth!

And in clos­ing, I leave you with a quote from Abra­ham Lin­coln: “In the end, it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.”

May you all have a won­der­ful week and make the most of each day. God Bless!

Hi, folks, Mother Na­ture showed us her “all” this past week­end and Satur­day, a beau­ti­ful sunny day and Sun­day, the down­pour was fol­lowed by the most spec­tac­u­lar pink skies that we don't get to see too of­ten! J.P. had his cam­era out and took some...
