Cleaning day 2016 around our monument

Last Monday, on the 4th of July, 2016; Lise Trudel and Roger Thiffault from Sainte-Thècle, Ghislaine Trudel-Simard, Lévis Simard and Louison Trudel (from Québec City) spent the day, cleaning, weeding and sprucing the land around our monument. This was the second full day, volunteers have spent, taking care of our monument and land, so far this year.

On Saturday, June 4th, 2016, Louison Trudel (from Québec City) and Claude Trudel (from Sainte-Thècle) spent the day, doing a first round of maintenance chores on our site.

By clicking here, you can see a series of pictures regarding this year's chore days. Thank you very much to all the volunteers who help our land and monument look so great!

P.S. For the past few years, I have been trying to convince Ghislaine to spill her secret about her 'eternal youth'. Does she use 'Oil of Olay' or 'Dove'? Or is it a lot of time spent outside? Or is it simply the joy of being Lévis' wife, or ???
