The tremendous outpouring of generosity within the French River municipality was evident today as donors responded to the need for assistance, offering clothing, furniture, appliances, bedding, children’s toys and much, much more for Marc Forget, Melanie Routhier, and their children.
Marc and Melanie would like to extend a warm "Thank you" to each and every member of the community that has been able to assist them while they undergo the task of rebuilding their life after the tragic loss of their home. All of the members of the French River Fire Department would also like to thank the members of our community for showing the spirit of togetherness in such a short period of time.
