As you may know on Dec. 21 08, our community lost a very good hearted and loving human being Joe Bergeron .He passed away suddenly at his home after returning from shoveling snow at the Sanctuary. At this date Joe's wife, Pat and his daughter Krystal are trying to keep Joe's dream alive, but with out funding its very hard.
Pat and Krystal have said:
That the outcome of summer 2009 will determine if they will be able to let Joe's dream live on.
In light of this local Recording studio/Record label/DJ Service Dough Control Studios and their first recording artist Ras Bingi Catt decided to help by putting on the 1st annual Joe Bergeron Family Fun Festival at the Bergeron's Sanctuary: 967 County Road #5 Picton, ON. This will be an outdoor ,all ages event, the day will be full of live performances and fun for the whole family.
