Cheverie reunion

Descendents of Antoine Detcheverry and Marie Pinet, 16th century Acadian settlers in Eastern Kings, held a ceremony on the weekend to pay homage to their ancestors. Over 100 people from across, PEI, Canada and the United States took part in a ceremony on Sunday afternoon at the site of a monument erected in the early 1990s. A French translation of the information on the monument will be added in the future. The ceremony was part of a three day long celebration of the Cheverie family where over 230 people were registered for the reunion which took place in conjunction with the 2019 World Acadian Congress.
