Each year, the Project Pioneers committee selects one French family and one German family to be honored at the Jour de Fete (held annually the second week of August in Ste. Genevieve. The committee and members of the families all contribute information to be collected into one book for the family. These books can be purchased or found in the Ste. Genevieve library.*
(Please forgive any sketchy or incorrect information, I am not on this committee.)
* The books can often be found in the library, that is. Some people do not understand the importance of sharing and these books have been known to disappear from the library. For instance, I know that the Thomure book has been missing for some time now. It was once there and now (Dec 2006) is not. If you are driving a good distance, you may want to call the library first to verify if the book you need is there or not.
