Contact: Elaine Thimot, 902-769-0955
The Rendez-vous de la Baie is very pleased to announce that La Société acadienne de Clare is the sponsor of the month for May 2014. Their generous contribution provides everyone with free access to the Acadian Interpretive Centre museum halls.
La Société acadienne de Clare is made up of individuals and organisations that work together to preserve and promote the Acadien language and culture in the Clare region. We represent La Fédération acadienne de la Nouvelle-Écosse in the Municipality of Clare. We organize many community base projects. Naturally, most of are activities and projects are conducted in our maternal French language, but they do not exclude the participation of the other official language community nor other minority groups. Visit our office at 795 Comeauville, in the Radio-CIFA building.
Access to the Acadian Interpretive Centre (Museum) at Rendez-vous de la Baie is now free of charge. New since 2012, the admission fees have been replaced by a Donation box, as well as a new Corporate Sponsorship Program.
For more information on the Corporate Sponsorship Program, please view the PDF.
