Franco-Ontarian Day celebrations a great success

In keeping with tradition, a ceremonial Franco-Ontarian flag raising was held on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018, at the University of Sudbury. Despite the rainy weather, an impressive crowd gathered to celebrate Franco-Ontarian Day in the Canisius Hall and then near the flagpole at the University of Sudbury’s main entrance, where the flag was raised for the very first time, in 1975.


The crowd enjoyed green and white cupcakes, and spinning the wheel to win prizes before the remarks were delivered. We wish to thank Joanne Gervais and the ACFO du grand Sudbury, our partners for this event. We also thank Rachel Desaulniers, the event MC, as well as all those who participated and contributed to the great success of the event!


In the evening, the University of Sudbury also took part in the green illuminations. To see more photos or live stream clips of the day, visit our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/usudbury/
