Le Carrefour de l’Isle-Saint-Jean is planning to host a romantic evening for Valentine’s Day. Although the official Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday, this special evening will be held on the Friday before, on February 11th at 6:00PM.
French is the language of love and the Francophone community wants to invite everyone, including non-French speakers to enjoy an evening filled with music, great food, games and surprises. In a time of social distancing, we are also in need for some type of normalcy and closeness. The Valentine’s soirée, “Le Carrefour de L’Amour” will allow for friends and couples to get out together, all while abiding by government mandated safety measures.
