President's Corner

First of all, I would like to extend to each of you my best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. This past year has been a very fruitful and productive one for our association. Though we are one of the youngest family organizations, if not the youngest, we have moved to the forefront through the tireless efforts of our membership. We have a lot to be thankful for, but these accomplishments can only be meaningful if we can sustain our association as a vibrant, active organization. And that can only happen through membership. That is why it is so important for all of us to renew our memberships and to strive to recruit as many family members as possible. Sustaining membership levels is always a concern for any organization and ours is no exception because we need numerical strength in order to be able to accomplish our goals. So, please send those membership renewals back immediately. We are quickly approaching the final countdown to the Congrs Mondial and the Leger-Trahan family reunion in Nova Scotia. Several committees have been working diligently in preparation for this event. We expect to have a large delegation of members present and encourage all of you who have not yet decided whether to attend to do so. In closing, I would like to especially thank all the officers, board members, committee chairpersons and members for all of your efforts this past year. We had a busy schedule with a reunion, Louisiana Purchase celebration, the Acadian Memorial cross and crests dedication, in addition to preparing for the Congrs Mondial and reunion. Thanks to your efforts, all of these events were great successes, as I'm sure everything in Nova Scotia will be as well. On to Nova Scotia!
