Edmundston plans meeting to spark survival of Foire Brayonne

EDMUNDSTON, New Brunswick — An important meeting will take place on Monday, Jan. 21, at 7 pm at the Jean-Daigle Centre to see if there is enough interest in the community to set up a new committee that will ensure organization of the 41st edition of the Foire Brayonne 2019.

This important summer festival is now without a board of directors and with just a handful of volunteers interested in participating in the organization of the 41st edition. At the recent annual general meeting, only two people volunteered for the positions of vice-president and secretary. All other positions remain to be filled to allow the Foire Brayonne to survive.

“We are convinced that there are many people who care about the survival of our festival and have ideas on its renewal and ways to get it back on track. These are the people we call upon today. The Foire is in jeopardy if we do not succeed in recruiting the necessary volunteers, “explained Michel Nadeau, director of Edmundston’s Recreation and Sports Department.

The population at large is invited to attend this ultimate meeting aimed at the survival of the Fair Brayonne.
