What is the Future of Our Association?

     We are in desperate need of "active" members in Association de la Famille Daigle.  Compared to other family organizations, we have a very large membership.  We need "active members" to assume active duties in running our important association.  We have several very beneficial activities that we feel should be allowed to continue.  They include: website, newsletter, Daigle database, and our annual contributions to the French Immersion Program.  Each of these would be a significant loss if the organization would not continue in some form.  Recently at our reorganization meeting, several new officers were elected.  This is very encouraging.

     I have been a member of the association for approximately 8 years and it has been a most rewarding experience.  During this time we have sponsored 2 reunions in conjunction with Congres Mondial Acadien  We won't be doing this again anytime in the near future since the association in New Brunswick will be organizing the 2009 reunion. (That means the next reunion up for grabs won't be until 2014.) 

     We hope you will  consider contributing your time in some small way to help us in continuing and accomplishing our goals.  Our original founders and current "active members" that formed the association in 1998 are getting up in age and we have actually lost a few who have died.  Believe me, you will not regret getting further involved with Association de la Famille Daigle.   All of our meetings end up being mini-reunions with lots of visiting, genealogy sharing, sometimes music, and ALWAYS plenty of food.

     Please study the following list and feel free to check one or more item..  Someone from the association will contact you as needed.  Thanks for your interest in Association de la Famille Daigle.
