Invitation to a picnic in memory of Maude Allard


We invite you to a picnic in memory of Maude Allard, a dear friend who left for her last trip in December 2021.

Her sudden departure has shaken us all and after several months, despite the pain we feel, we wish to share a warm and friendly moment, in all simplicity, in the image of Maude who was a person of heart with an infectious laugh and who loved music, games and having fun in life. We would like to share this loving tribute to our dear friend Maude with you.

This moment is for people who have known Maude in some way, it is a free activity.

Note: this picnic in memory of Maude is not the same event as the Chouettes’ annual picnic. For the annual picnic, click here.
