To honour their francophone heritage local schools and francophone clubs will be celebrating on Friday, Sept. 23.

Students from Ecole Secodaire L’Heritage, Ecole Secondaire La Citadelle and Ecole Rose des Vents will be marching to the Cornwall Justice Building where they, along with dignitaries, and members of the general public will raise the francophone flag to commemorate the day of festivities.

“It’s the day we celebrate the flag of the Franco-Ontariens,” said L’Heritage principal Eric Genier. “It’s in conjunction with French Week as well.”
