New Rendez-vous de la Baie website launched !

Dear Rendez-vous de la Baie partners,

I am very pleased to share with you that the new and improved Rendez-vous de la Baie website is now “Live”!

I love the new design and navigation developed by Nyna Cropas, she has been a genuine pleasure to work with! We have put in countless hours on developing design elements and adding updated information on all of the features and functions of the Centre. Learn about the recent additions to the Centre, such as the outdoor performance area and the public meeting room. Check out the Calendar to discover information on events happening in Clare. And you may have heard that new for the 2012 season, the Acadian Interpretive Centre (the museum) will be open free to the public! We encourage you to share the Centre with your family and friends, and to visit often!

You will note there are new pages in the “Visitor Information Centre” section, which offers listings and links for Clare tourism businesses, experiences and partners.

It would be greatly appreciated if you would consider adding a reciprocal link back to the Rendez-vous de la Baie website (and if you are not already included, perhaps we could provide reciprocal links to our respective websites).

Don’t hesitate to visit the website often, since new content will be regularly updated. Please let me know what you think — much appreciated!
