The CAC would like to congratulate the Quebec Oz Club for kicking of the Canadian party season with a great St.Jean Baptist day party!

There was some great Quebec beer and poutine available, and everyone was very welcoming to all CAC members. 

What follows is Diane Yanire's summery of the event:

This year we celebrated our National Day at the Essen Restaurant and Beer Cafe in Ultimo. The fact that it was on a Sunday was great because we could reserve the whole restaurant, we could start earlier and it encouraged members of the Quebec Oz Club to bring their kids ! It was the perfect combination.

I would like to say a big thank you to my helpers on the night ! Faye, Jeanne, Marie-Gabrielle, Ariane, Sandy, Rick, Jocelyne, Josee, Max.

We had a Jazz corner this year to remind us of the International Jazz Festival of Montreal. Alex (my husband) played guitar for us. It added a great touch to the party. Thank you Alex you were amazing (maybe I am biased).

At the bar upstairs, a compilation of Quebec music was played and "La petite vie" was featured on the flat screen.

I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Madeleine, Joannie and the rest of the staff from the Essen Restaurant and Beer Cafe. Everything was perfect! The food ... the poutine, tourtiere and other Quebec dishes was wow! We like your place so much, I think that it should become our official Quebec House.

It has been sixteen (16) years that I am organising this party for our Quebec family in Australia and although it takes a huge amount of work, time and effort I feel that the end results are always rewarding.

Thank you for coming to my party, you are such a great bunch of people! xx
