Report on the 11th Gathering of the members of ADNLD Held October 18, 2008 at the Le Cardinal Golf Club in Laval

Translated by Paulette Legault, Saskatchewan

Approximately 40 people attended the 10th Annual Meeting of the Association of ADNLD. A light lunch was followed by a warm welcome and the meeting then began in spite of a slight delay. The members of the Board of Directors were made aware at the last minute that the President was unable to attend due to her health.

2008_1The Board members in attendance opened the meeting. Our special invited guest, Mr. Jean-Jacques Lapierre, the deputy mayor of Vaillancourt in the City of Laval, presented the history of Laval, our host city. With a touch of humor, he talked about the very long history of Laval as well as making reference to some of the names of important persons such as Mgr de Laval.

Mrs. Monique Legault, acting Chairperson, welcomed everyone. The reports from various committees were read. Due to the absence of the President, the financial report for the fiscal year 2007-2008 was unavailable as she also served as Treasurer. It was decided that this report would be sent to members in attendance, by mail, as well as being published in the next issue of our bulletin Se souvenir.

A wonderful meal was then shared by everyone.
During the meal, various Merit awards were presented. Three members were recognized for their Outstanding Achievement: Monique Dubois-Legault (m. 001), Eugène Legault (m. 007), absent, and François Legault (m. 060), posthumously.

Other Merit awards were presented to members, some not in attendance.
