Puppets being created to personify Kootenay pioneers

Francophone pioneers Henri Bourgeois, Elie Carpentier and J.O. Patenaude are being represented.

Three giant puppets, approximately 3-meters high, are being constructed to personify influential Francophone pioneers Henri Bourgeois, Elie Carpentier and J.O. Patenaude.

Models of the figures (seen above) which will be used in a number of performances along with Trafalgar student participants starting in December, are now on display in the glass case at the corner of Baker and Ward.
