Aucoins meet Aucoins

Aucoin reunion in Cheticamp. Nova Scotians hope to see a revival of Acadian culture in the province. Louisiana Aucoins hope to meet some relatives. Some speak of seeing family resemblances (we heard--and saw--this at the LeBlanc reunion in 1999). One person said,
they loaded their truck and camper with 900 kilograms of Cajun souvenirs - including beads, packets of spices, hot fish sauces and Tobasco sauce - just to give away to reunion participants in Cheticamp, as well as Halifax later next week.
Good idea ... but I can't get that much lagniappe on a plane!
