Samuel de Champlain Sighted on the Lake 

While Fran Stoddard and friends from Burlington City Arts are roaming around France to find out more about Samuel de Champlain, the explorer himself has been sighted here in Burlington!

Here's a recent press release from Robert Resnik at the Fletcher Free Library:

Monsieur Samuel de Champlain is back! He has been spotted gazing in fond affection at his beloved Lake aboard the Spirit of Ethan Allen, a ship much different than the one he sailed on for his first visit to the lake which bears his name.

While visiting Burlington this summer, Monsieur de Champlain will be
residing at the Fletcher Free Library, where Madmoiselle Christine Demarais, his personal seamstress and beautician, can make sure that he continues to look his best for the many social and commemorative engagements where he will be the guest of honor.

He looks quite dashing for a 400 year old gent, non?

People are really starting to have fun with this Quadricentennial thing.
