Aylmer celebrates 175 years of existence!
Formerly a town in its own right, now a proud sector of Gatineau, Aylmer is known in the region for its rich history, its living heritage and for the cultures that continue to meet there. On the occasion of Aylmer's 175th anniversary, a recognition dinner will be held at the Aydelu Centre (94 Patrimoine street) on Saturday, August 27 (cocktail reception to begin at 5:00 pm). This evening will be an opportunity for all those who wish to attend to share memories and milestones that have shaped the history of this municipality. The event, organized by the Association des professionnels, industriels et commerçants d'Aylmer (APICA) will also serve as a forum to recognize citizens, families and organizations that have particularly distinguished themselves during the year. In addition to the cocktail hour and meal, participants in the recognition dinner will be able to attend a concert by the Grande-Rivière Orchestra, followed by Marc Parent, who will host the rest of the evening. Tickets for the 175th Anniversary Recognition Dinner can be purchased online at the APICA website (https://apica.ca/) and all requests for information can be sent to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
