June Rendezvous is just 10 days away and are we excited! In just a week and a half, we will be welcoming participants and visitors to Fort de Chartres to experience the amazing sights and sounds that only this Rendezvous brings! The Rendezvous weekend’s weather forecast is looking beautiful and the Fort grounds are in great shape. We thank the event’s host, Les Coureurs des Bois de Fort de Chartres, for their work and preparation for the site’s landmark event while Les Amis is working hard behind the scenes to cover so many of the expenses incurred by this large event that welcomes 15,000 visitors!. We would like to take a moment to thank all of our Special Events Giving Campaign Sponsors, the list to be found on our Les Amis page on the Fort’s website: www.fortdechartres.us. Remember, please express your thanks to these business and individual sponsors for supporting the beloved June Rendezvous and all the Fort de Chartres special events so important not only to the Fort but to the surrounding communities.
Last weekend, Carol Richardson, was our first direct online donor to the 47th Annual June Rendezvous at Fort de Chartres through our link on the Fort’s website special Rendezvous page created by Dave Horne. Merci, Carol, your individual donation reflects your love of all things June Rendezvous and is very much appreciated. Earlier this year after the newly formatted Fort de Chartres website went online, Les Amis choose not to sponsor an online crowdfund platform donation campaign which charges a fee to host and process a donations to a giving campaign. It seemed easier to create a donation link on the newly revamped website and to focus on our corporate giving campaign. We truly appreciate the returning business sponsors and are happy to welcome our new campaign sponsors. We did lose some sponsorship due to the weight of the Illinois budget crisis and its effect on surrounding communities, so we really appreciate Carol’s timely donation and hope others will be inspired to show their support.
