Initiatives in French-Midwest Director, Virgil Benoit, UND
- Annonçant la Fête Franco-Festival at the MnAATF 2012 Annual Dinner

_____________________________________________


3 days prior to the festival's beginning, Prof. Benoit [MnAATF French Teacher of the Year 1999], conference organizer and leader,
was in a very serious automobile accident near East Grand Forks, MN
and was, unfortunately, unable to attend this year's FrancoFête for which he had labored so long and compassionately.
We wish him a very speedy recovery!

Bravo to La Société Canadienne française leader, Dick Bernard, and the team
(including our former Grand Concours leader, MaryEllen Weller) which coordinated things in his absence.
