FH18 continue…

Published: June 17, 2009

Another great day at Lac du Bois!  Though we've had a bit of rain over the last couple of days, the villagers' faces are beaming and we are having a wonderful time!  We've been keeping very busy as we fall into our daily routine: sauna, activités en cabane, recréaction, projets, activités au choix, francofolies, veillées, et repas délicieux! Our days are full of activity, but we have left a little time...

Les Villageois

Published: June 16, 2009

Yesterday afternoon, our very first group of villageois (villagers) arrived for FH18 -- a week-long session.  We enjoyed a great evening together with fine food (salade aux pommes, baguette, boeuf en daube, gratin dauphinois, et clafoutis aux cerises), a tour of the site, and some time in the cabins to get to know one another.  We closed with a song around the campfire, Bonsoir les loups!
