On Thursday June 19, New Brunswick’s fourth Trans Canada Trail pavilion was unveiled at the Fraser Marina in downtown Edmundston.  Over 200 donors were recognized for their contribution to the Trail.

Over 30 people participated in this event including Restigouche/Madawaska Member of Parliament Jean-Claude D’Amours, MLA Madeleine Dubé, J. Denys Bourque, President of the Société d’amenagement de la riviére Madawaska et du lac Témiscouata and Jean-Marie Cyr, Zone Director for New Brunswick Trails Council Inc.

In 1999, École Cormier set out to raise enough money to purchase a metre of trail to represent each province and territory: the only missing pavilion inscription out of the 13 was in their hometown pavilion, which now holds the name of École Cormier.  Teachers Patricia Thibodeau and Gaétan Martin were on hand to finally see this happen.
