Saturday August 5, an Irish Heritage group of twenty-two went on a day excursion to Grosse Île. Joe Lonergan addressed the membership at the great stone cross. From there we to the newer memorial where the names of those who died on the island are etched in glass. Later we took the trolley tour to the lazaretto and finally visited the immigrant reception area. We were thankful that the rain held off until we were in transit back to Berthier-sur-Mer.
