It was a great week-end for the 124 participants who were in Longueuil for the National program last April 11-12. Judy Millen led us through this wonderfull program and once again, was an outstanding resource for our Region. Participants left with a very large number of instructions to practice, and fortunately, Judy mentioned the importance of taking notes during the program, it will certainly be useful for many! In addition to instructions, she shared with us stories and thoughts on our training and our organization, so we truly have benefited from her experience at all levels.
Saturday at lunchtime participants discovered the “sugar shack meal” that was waiting for them! Each of the 12 tables displayed its own stoneware proudly and with the smell of the “fèves au lard à l’érable”, the “fesses de jambon à l’érable cuites au four” and the “poudings chômeurs à l’érable” for desert, you could almost hear the sap flowing from the maple trees!
