2019 Gathering in Longueuil, QC
The young Saindons were there ... photo galery
A "tour de force" of the organizers, Nathalie and Claude Saindon with the help of Lea Vachon.
It is particularly the games activities offered by Randolf by the main animator Guillaume, son of Danièle Saindon and Ghislain Thibodeau which raised their interest. Even my grandson, Merlin, was there. His mother, Élise, had fun also.
Benefiting from "reduced price" !
More than fifty persons registered at "reduced price", available for the first time this year. So, as early as the end of June, the organizers had a good estimate of the number of participants. An experience to be renewed. One must note the presence of a large number of descendants of Jean-Maurice Saindon and Pauline, parents of Nathalie.
Wine and cheese
On Friday, welcomed by Martine Saindon and Lea Vachon, according to tradition, the participants savored wine and cheese. We had the pleasure of seeing again Thérèse Saindon and her husband Hermel Levesque, accompagnied by her sisters Anne-Marie, from Connecticut, and Florence, both always faithful to attend the gatherings.
The unveiling of the commemorative panel was in the spotlight ! A summary of the activity recalled the generosity of the members who contributed more than $4000 and the success of the unveiling at Bains-sur-Oust due to the attendance of seventeen persons from Québec : they are keeping an unforgettable memory of the warm welcome of the Bainsois. A 20 minutes video was presented and congratulations were addressed to André Sindon, coordonnator of the program. A financial statement was presented at the Annal Meeting showing a surplus of $975.
Visitors from Bains and the 25th anniversary
Claude Saindon, president, presented the financial statements as treasurer at the Annuel meeting. Rémi Saindon was elected on the board of directors replacing Gilles Saindon who had to resign for family reasons.. André et Sylvie Saindon won the free registrations for new members.
Followed a musical evening animated by « Les Siffleurs de Nuit» group. The younger Saindons were on the dance floor in large number showing energy and charm.
