To all Phoenix members,
We had so much fun at "La Cabane à sucre"
last year, we are going back again this year. Members can again benefit from a reduced price courtesy of the club.
We have again selected Pierre Faucher’s "Sucrerie de la Montagne"
in Rigaud (Pete's long lost cousins :-) login for photo, renowned for its food and ambiance. There is live music, sleigh rides, maple sugar on snow, all in the beautiful surroundings of Mont Rigaud. You can actually sit in the fireplace it's so big!!
"...Designated an official “Site du Patrimoine Québécois” (Québec Heritage site), the sugar shack, located in the midst of a 120-acre forest of century-old maples atop Mont Rigaud, west of Montréal, transports its visitors back in time, providing them with a momentary glimpse of life as it truly was for Québec and Canadian pioneers."
