A CELEBRATION, FOUR CENTURIES IN
A large gathering of Acadians from most countries with
descendants from deported Acadians along with some that are of
French decent though not with "Acadian" roots gathered in the upper
part of Maine, Madawaska in particular, and in the western part of
New Brunswick, with much of the activities centered in Grand Falls,
Insofar as the Trahan's and Lege's, the reunion was held in St.
Croix, N. B. It as an all day affair, with many distinctive
and delightful presentations, with a Holy Mass on the premises by
the local priest.
One of the interesting aspect was the many home and businesses
decorated in the Tri-Colors of the Acadian flag. One
disappointing fact of the gathering is that very few Trahan's from
that part of the world attended. There were more Trahan's from
Louisiana and Texas than any other locality.
Below are a few pictures of that area and that particular day:
