The purpose of this project is to pay tribute to our ancestors Pierre and Jean Labrecque, who left Dieppe in France circa 1657 and settled on Île d'Orléans in 1659, while continuing their craft as a sailor. It is a wonderful project. It is a way to not only honor our ancestors who came from Dieppe, but also to leave an overseas trace of all generations of Labrecque in America.
The goal has been achieved. The amount raised is $ 2033.78.
Thank you to all donors.
The inauguration will take place on Thursday, June 4, 2020.
We invite you all to attend this memorable day. Note that no trip will be organized by the association. However, if you wish to be present at this one, please inform us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
