--December 13, 2016.
Thanks to financial support from the SADC of the Coaticook region and of the Quebec Ministry of Culture and Communications, the Table de concertation culturelle de la MRC de Coaticook (TCCC) has just launched a case of five DVDs featuring the narratives of seniors living in the Coaticook MRC, 65 of them French-speaking and 10 English-speaking. QAHN's own Dick Evans is one of the featured interviewees.
These seniors, some of whom have passed away since their reminiscences were recorded, offer us truly unique narratives about the early days of the settlement in our region. Thanks to this project, their memories have been preserved for future generations.
Gladys Bruun, Vice-president of the TCCC (to May 2016), was responsible for the coordination of the project. Filming was by Stéphane Lafrance of Productions MiliMik, and took place in local heritage buildings. The musical score was recorded at the Ives Hill and Draper’s Corner Community Centre of Compton during a dance with the Country Swingers (Ron Haseltine, Dave Bessant, Art Little and Carol Sayers).
"Threads of Our History: Living Memories of the Good Old Times in the Coaticook Area" is available at outlets around Coaticook and elsewhere in the Townships, including at the offices of Townshippers Association in Lennoxville.
