A New Addition to the Family

First, we’d like to introduce you to Myriam and André’s first child,(and Julie, Pat, Pierre and Viola’s first grandchild, and Suzanne, Zach, Benoit, and Áine’s first nephew), Samuel Alfred, born on June 2, 8lbs, 5oz., and everyone is doing well. Julie, Pat and Áine took a trip to Toronto recently to meet him in person. You’ll all get to meet him at this year’s AlgomaTrad….Yay!

AlgomaTrad Street Dance in the Sault, 2013

We also wanted to let you know that there is an AlgomaTrad Family Contra/Square Dance right on Queen St. (we were in front of Stone’s last year) in Sault Ste. Marie, Thursday, July 17,  as part of the Sault Downtown Association summer Street Party , 6:30-11:00p.m. The O’Schraves will be pumping out the tunes, and our very own caller Dan Gorno will be there to get everyone hopping. We were just getting going last year when the heaven’s opened and a HUGE storm sent us all packing….let’s hope for a beautiful night this year! The Downtown Association web page for the street party actually features Dan and some dancin’ AlgomaTradders! Check it out here!
