Aya niihka, Aya eeweemilaani. (Hello Friend, Hello my relative)
Photos from Nouvelle Annee 1757 are now posted both on the website and our facebook page. Neewe (Thank you) to William Spence for taking the photos!
Nouvelle Annee is a winter French garrison at Historic Fort Wayne in Fort Wayne Indiana, this event has a twist compared to most of the events we attend, every year this event progresses another year so next year will be 1758. we hope to see you there next year, we had a good time as always. I want to extend Neewe (Thank you) to the Fort staff and Thomas Wojcinski for putting on another great event.
