A community hub in Fort Coulonge held an early start to Quebec Family Week on Saturday, hosting entertainment, a barbeque and much more at their party.
With the celebratory week running May 14 through the 20 this year, the Maison de la Famille du Pontiac decided to start the party early, seeing many familiar and new faces alike come out for their day of fun.
“This is a kick-off for family week,” said Nicole Belleau, director general from the organization.
While the Broken Arrow Drummers provided a steady rhythm to portions of the day through their traditional First Nations beats, guests were welcome to tour the grounds and enjoy a variety of activities.
