Mayoress of Montreal's 2018 Christmas party
On December 22nd, 2018 was held the Mayoress's Christmas party at Montreal City Hall. It was the first time Clan Logan attended this event. There were entertainers, live music and Santa ready to greet the children. We had quite the attendance. Your Commissioner did no go unnoticed as people politely asked for pictures and wanted to know more about Clan Logan and where we are established in Montreal. City officials appreciated the Scottish presence.
We met the Mayoress of Montreal, Valérie Plante who was very surprised to see us and exchanged a few words. Mrs.Plante spoke about how she was pleased that Clan Logan came by to celebrate the holidays and had great esteem for the Scots and their contribution to Montreal. She reminded me that our Lafontaine park was originally Logan Park and that the Logan farms were there, owned by Sir William Edmond Logan.We are still recognized for this today. The Scottish people's influence in our city was so great that the thistle appears on the Montreal Flag, honouring us. On this occasion, we were able to mingle and meet new people, share our values and promote the
importance of being in a community.
