The registration fee will be 40 $ per person for the 2 days (it will be free for children under 17). They will include all activities on Friday and Saturday except for the Friday dinner. Busing costs will be extra.  For those wishing only to attend the Friday activities the fee will be 25 $ per person (free for children under 17).  Since seating is limited on the bus transportation to Prince Edward Island on the 17th, it is very important to reserve your place ($40) when you register on-line.

Girouard descendants attending the CMA 2019 and wishing to attend the Girouard, Giroir, Gerrior Family Reunion could also attend the August 15, Congrès mondial acadien 2019 Acadian Day Celebration, in Dieppe, NB since it is so close to our planned reunion dates.

We are also exploring the possibility of public transportation to and from Prince Edward Island on Saturday, August 17th. If you are interested in this initiative, please contact me as soon as possible. There is no commitment on your part, but it will greatly facilitate our decisions and planning on this matter.
