Vive la francophonie!

Local schools and the French community gathered at City Hall this morning to raise the Franco-Ontarian flag in honor of Franco-Ontarian Day in full color and song! Mayor Wilson was on hand to share in this celebration by recognizing the existence, identity and contribution of the Franco-Ontarian community in Dryden. Also, for the first time in Dryden’s history, DHS raised the Franco-Ontarian flag at the school. Ensemble, nous sommes fiers!”   Photos by Michael Christianson
