DATE: 1st october 2023

Dear postcrosser’s friends,
I have never been able to participate in a meetup before, let alone organize one.
But here I am dear friends: I challenge myself and I hope to have the pleasure of meeting 50 people of you.
1 - Meeting point to be defined but perhaps in front of the Nicolazic house or on the forecourt of the Basilica at the start of the event.
2 - Visit of the Nicolazic house (200m from the basilica). It is the house of the peasant who discovered the statue of Saint Anne and is behind the construction of the Sanctuary.
3 - Visit to the Sanctuary. There is the basilica, the park, the Scala, the memorial, the treasures of Sainte-Anne and the chapel. Sainte-Anne-d’Auray is the third place of Catholic pilgrimage in France. The city was built around the religious building.
4 - For those who wish, it is possible to attend mass.
5 - Visit of the four souvenir shops. Purchases of postcards possible.
6 - For the meal, around 12:15 p.m., we will eat at the Auberg’ine. This is a very good bistro-gastronomic restaurant. The owners offer you a menu of the day (starter, main course and dessert, which they don’t normally do on weekends) with a choice of meat or fish for 19€/person and a snack in the afternoon for 5€ /person (coffee, tea, chocolate). We will be in a private room. They can accommodate us up to fifty people.
7 - During the afternoon we will write cards.
I plan to print World Postcard Day cards for the rally.
I would like each participant to come with a small gift (a card, a delicacy…), we will draw lots to distribute these gifts to the participants.
If we have time, we may make a handcard.
I am the organizer of the “1 carte, 1 plume, 1 sourire” project so do not hesitate to come with Christmas cards written for the elderly alone.
If you have any question, don’t hesitate to ask me below.
