Commemorations

In September 2017, it was decided to underline the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Association of Descendants of Noël Legault dit Deslauriers Inc. with a commemorative plaque honoring the memory of our ancestors on the property in Pointe-Claire, built around 1760 by a fellow named Théorêt. This patrimonial house, located at 105 Bord-du-Lac Road/Lakeshore Drive, belonged to Daniel Allard until it was sold to Augustin Legault dit Deslauriers, a 5th generation descendant at the start of the XIXth century. It was inhabited by Augustin’s descendants for 200 years.

In October 2017, in keeping with the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the founding of the Association of Descendants of Noël Legault dit Deslauriers Inc., a commemorative plaque honoring our ancestors Noël and Marie was inaugurated in Irvillac in the present of the citizens of Irvillac, the members of the Municipal Council, some members of the cultural association War Hentchou Irvilhag and a delegation of members of ADNLD Inc. This plaque was placed in the centre of town, to the left of the entrance to the parish enclosure. 

And finally, at the Salon de la Rose event in Brittany, held at the Cosquer domain in Irvillac on June 2019, a commemorative “Rose Quebec” rose garden was inaugurated at the base of the plaque honoring our ancestors. The twin sister of “Ville de Brest”, these roses have won numerous prizes and were created by the renowned horticulturist, Jean-Marie Gaujard. Mr. Gaujard gave it its name in 1943.
