Department Picnic

A couple of weekends ago, the department kicked off the academic year with a picnic in Parc La Fontaine. It was a bit chilly, but good food, good friends and good frisbee kept us warm. Check out the pictures below!

Department Picnic

This academic year got started with a potluck picnic at Parc La Fontaine in early September. There was excellent food to sample, and, of course, great company.

A McLing photographer who was sent to cover the event has just sent some pictures which he was busy developing following an ancient technique that takes months. Enjoy!

Departmental Picnic: return to Parc Lafontaine

The rain stopped just in time for linguists to enjoy a beginning-of-the-year departmental picnic in perfect weather in Parc LaFontaine. Delicious food and good conversation were had by all.  Here are some pictures of linguists, and a white squirrel who joined us:

Departmental picnic – 9/7 at 12pm

Let’s celebrate the beginning of the academic year with an informal picnic!

When: Saturday, September 7th, 12 pm

Where: Parc La Fontaine (Well-served by public transportation: e.g., Buses #11, #24, #29, #97, #144; Metro Sherbrooke or Metro Mont-Royal)

What: Bring your own food and drink (as well as plates, cups, utensils, etc); sharing is encouraged! Balls, boules/bocce, frisbees, badminton rackets, jumping ropes, or any other games are welcome.

We’ll try to find picnic tables in the area just east of Avenue Calixa Lavalee (which runs north-south in the middle of the park), and south of the volleyball courts and the grey city building; it’s more or less in the center of the park (and the same place as last year).

All are welcome! You can find photos from previous years here.
