It was fairly evident that the community of Kitimat was ready for a real celebration, and on February 27, at Hirsch Creek Golf & Winter Club, AFFNO presented the return of our Franco fun Festival. After Dr. Henry’s announcement on February 16, we were allowed to sell 100 tickets for the brunch … and we sold them all! In total, including volunteers and special guests, more than 120 people participated! Marc-Olivier Chouinard and Denis Gagné provided the music, AFFNO offered up toffee on the snow, and everyone truly enjoyed the food, but more importantly … the chance to meet in person! Thank you to all of our partners, particularly le Patrimoine Canadien, B.C. Gaming, Kitimat Lodge, Bear Country Inn, the District of Kitimat, and of course, Hirsch Creek! We love you!
