On this day in Our Islands History

In 1939, at 23:30 the islands hospital received its first patient who was in need of an emergency operation.

In 1992, some of the original acrobats from the Magdalen Islands triumphed in Paris at the Festival of the Cirque de Demain ( Tomorrow's Circus). The three islanders, Alain and Damien Boudreau and Jeannot Chaisson, gave a choreographed presentation and returned with a second place silver medal. Jeannot Chiasson presented a number on a bicycle and won the bronze medal. These four (?) acrobats were part of a group of artists from the province of Quebec.
