A Word from the President - Fall 2019

A few words about 2019

Greatings dear members

The year 2019 brought changes to your Association’s board of directors which went from seven to five members to facilitate its effective functioning. We also welcome Michel as recruit member to the board.

The end of 2019 also marks the end of our Association’s 30th anniversary. It is thanks to people like Lorraine, originator and founding member of our Association, and many other volunteers through the years that we have survived to this day. You also deserve thanks for maintaining your interest in our newsletter Les Robitailleries and having urged members of your family to join our family Association. Like regional newspapers, we struggle with financing and original content while competing with information distributed over the Internet. We would encourage you to subscribe to our electronic bulletin, it helps to cut down our costs.

Since we print out only two paper copies of the Robitailleries every year, we will keep on publishing electronic articles regularly with new contents on various subjects. You can also follow us on Facebook and share pieces of information with your cousins :

As to myself, I am proud to be a part of our family Association. I commit myself to the continuation of the work already begun and, with the other board members, to the identification of solutions so that our Association meets in the best possible way the needs of its actual and future members. I hope that you will take this opportunity to renew your membership because it is the way to support your Association in its efforts to provide information on our roots and our family values.

To all of you, a happy and healthy New Year!

Marc Robitaille, President
