Last Saturday was a wonderful day.
Many families and friends came together for the "first ever" La Croisee Easter Egg Hunt.
Over 125 children took part sharing the adventure, fun, prizes and loop goody bags.
And like all of our community events, it was simply born by the flow of an idea supported by residents and volunteers.
Our community offers thanks to a generous and encouraging local sponsor for this event, Béatrice et chocolats - located at 101 rue Principale, Gatineau (Vieux-Aylmer)

Special thanks goes to Corinne Canuel-Jolicoeur, who thought of this wonderful possibility. Well done, Corinne!
...and thanks to the Community Association support team, Laura Parpalita, Annic McGuire and Larry Prickett for help planning, advertising and material support. Thanks to Angela Haggar and Lyne Forget-Lanthier for registration desk help, to all our Association Street Representatives for getting the invitation out, and of course, to our many volunteers who help with set-up on the day of the event.
We also offer our thanks to the Aylmer Heritage Association for sharing part of their space for our registration evenings. Thank you, Micheline, for your generosity, time and effort.
And a very special thanks goes to Lewis Lehman, Manager of the Gatineau Golf Club. Lewis generously allowed us to share the beautiful outdoor venue of the Club house.
It obviously made the difference. Thank you, Lewis!
(A little La Croisee secret: The Club Bistro breakfast eggs benedict are awesome and the patio on a summer evening is pure, relaxing bliss.)
And most of all, the day would not have been possible without all our residents and friends who came, supported and made this non-profit community event another success!
