As a result of the great enthusiasm brought about by the August 20, 1972 rally held at Deschambault,where some 900 participants came from several parts of America to celebrate the 300 anniversary of the arrival of Nicolas, a plaque project was set forth.

 

A consultation was made through the small bulletin " Origine des familles Paquin au Canada" which confirmed the desire to go ahead with the project. It was slow proceeding, but in the falls of 1974, the location was found. The foundation was poured and the monument was erected in May 1975.

 

The unveiling and blessing of the monument took place on August 24, 1975.

 

Glory to our ancestors!
