Free Canoe rides on the "Mighty Restigouche" in a hand made 26-ft. cedar-wood canoe. There will be a lot map of the area from Kempt Rd. to Matapedia with all the names of the original settlers on it for everyone.
Bring all your old pictures and family stories! We will have tables available so you can put things on display. We have put together a list of accommodations. Please feel free to contact me for the list. I can also provide a map and travel directions. At this time I would love any ideas or suggestions that might add to the fun of this gathering.
There will be people coming from B.C., Saskatchewan, California, Florida, and Michigan, etc. Tell your relatives!!
