Federal funding announced for “Astorville en Fêtes”…

East Ferris has received an investment from the federal government to host an event marking 400 years of French presence in Ontario.

The 40-thousand dollar investment will allow the municipality to coordinate an event called “Astorville en Fêtes”. The project will include a walking tour of the village’s historical sites, and the development of digital archives and a commemorative book. It will take place September 25th to the 27th.

The announcement was made by Nipissing-Timiskaming MP Jay Aspin at Champlain Park on Sunday. Since May 2011, over $3-million in federal funding has been invested to support Francophone culture in Nipissing-Timiskaming.
