French Carleton Connection Burgundy 2008

In August of 2008, I was invited by Harry McLachlin, Carleton '69 to join his family at a Chateau for a family vacation near Vezeley and Avallon Burgundy. Harry McLachlin ‘69, with fellow Francophiles, Bob Aby ’67, Tom Weaver ’69, and Anne Jansen Aby ’67 met in the French village of Arcy-sur-Cure, Burgundy; where avid runner, Bob completed a race with mostly French locals. Harry shared with his European and American family the tastes, sights and sounds of rural Burgundy around Vezeley and Avallon. Bob received recognition for the runner having come the furthest distance for the race. Tom then headed south to Languedoc to research his Chapelier/Chappelear family Huguenot roots. (Tom W Photo)
