President’s Message

Dear cousin,

 We had a cold winter and a little long, now it's spring and soon summer, so enjoy every moment.

As you know, our group trip to France was canceled, to my great disappointment. Let's say that the cost of travel was one of the factors that slowed our tour operators to sign up, but I promise you a future group trip better suited to your portfolio. However, I announce that I will make a trip to France on a more personal and sporting basis, I will be accompanied by my wife Angélique, as well as my friends, Céline and Rolland Lemieux. We will meet our French cousins as a mini-Quebec delegation, we will share all our experience in French territory upon our return.

On April 7, we held our first Regional Lemieux Brunch at the Sugar Shack, a very successful event! A beautiful day between Lemieux! Sweeten your mouth, it's always good and especially in good company! A 2nd Brunch is assured for spring 2019!

This year, we will hold our Annual meeting on August 18, 2018 in Estrie, in Orford near Magog. You will see the details of activities for our 2018 Lemieux Annual meeting in this Newsletter which will prove to be convivial and gastronomic.

Since December 2017, the Lemieux Association has welcomed several new members and I am very proud of it! What is very encouraging is a real passion for our Association!

In addition, I am pleased to inform you that I receive much e-mail correspondence, requests for information, sharing articles and beautiful photos from various regions of Quebec, Canada and the United States, it’s a pleasure to read every email! Thank you for   sharing them!

I invite you all to send me your stories, your travels or a nice tribute to a member of your family Lemieux, write us a short article, it will be my pleasure to publish it on your behalf in the next Bulletin La Mieuserie, because let's not forget, the Association's primary   mission is to promote the pride of belonging to the Lemieux heritage and to inspire the rising generations with a taste for our history and our origin.

Enjoy your reading and look forward to meeting you in August!

François Lemieux
