100 participants at the Saint Jean Gallic meal
Saturday 20 June was the annual celebration of the "Ensemble pour l'environnement et le patrimoine à St-Thomas". Forty people participated in the three-hour walk, including stops, which started at les Foucaudières, led the walkers through the woods to Bas Bossault, then took the road to La Levrie where refreshments were served. The route continued along the Thébauderie footpath, reopened by the association last year, then returned via l'Herbinière and back to les Foucaudières. Meanwhile, eight teams took part in a boules competition. About 100 people then gathered for a country meal with a Gallic themed menu consisting of spit-roasted pigs served with buckwheat. A large bonfire of St Jean, lit a little early, closed this evening, augmented by an impromptu cello recital. As usual, we danced around the fire.
