We have decided to host a Gaspard Reunion, probably in late summer (August) of 2002 (that is only 6 months away, but we feel sure that we can host a very good 1 and 1/2 day to 2 day reunion. It will be hosted in Vrmilion Parish and will more than likely revolve around the Johan Gaspard Mechel family. We welcome all Gaspard throughout North America.To do this we would need those Gaspards not attached to Johan to submit to our committee some type of genealogy so that we can somehow incorporate those families in the group. Volunteer on the host committee. A call will go out next week to those local family members here in VErmilion Parish. Get in on the organization. We need your help.
