Introducing the 2017 Guides: Madeleine!

| February 13, 2017

The Juno Beach Centre is now open for the 2017 season. And a new year means a new Canadian student guide team!

Madeleine, from Montréal, QC, is one of the first guides to arrive and will be with us until August. Here’s what she had to say about working on Juno Beach:

“Before arriving in Normandy, I did not understand the weight of the sacrifices that took place here. But it is difficult to stand on Juno Beach and to take for granted its legacy. My aim in giving tours here is to convey the meaning of this unique site with the sincerity, spirit, and humour that are representative of Canada. I love getting asked questions almost as much as I like to ask them!”

Stop by the Juno Beach Centre to meet Madeleine and welcome her to Normandy!
