The tribute to Jacqueline Jaouen

The tribute to Jacqueline Jaouen

The ex-president of the association Camesira 47, Jacqueline Jaouen, was honored last Saturday by the new president, Rose-Marie Lainard, mayor Guerin, and a number of members of the bureau of this association.

She received a medal for his commitment as a volunteer, for almost twenty-five years. The mayors of the municipalities of Romestaing, Pierre Grange, and St-Laurent, Guy Clua, were associated with this event to show their gratitude for his investment in the safeguarding of the heritage.

This event was able to retrace the route of a new Jacqueline Jaouen, an artist in the soul, a native of the district of Ménilmontant, “the kid of Menilmuche” as she likes to say. Removed to Sting in 1990, after a rich career, she was involved in the cultural field, and in tourism. It is improvised leader magazine in 2003 to raise funds, taking up the repertoire of French song. She has chaired the association Camesira 47 in 2002, of which she was a member, and has handed over the chairmanship to Mary-Rose Lainard in 2015. This association, which works for the rehabilitation of the architectural heritage of old, does not receive any subsidy from the Department or the Region, and worked through the fees paid by Jacqueline.

38 000 euros to renovate

In total, 38 000 euros have been allocated for the implementation of several restoration projects, such as the church of Esquerdes in Guerin, the tower of Monsempron-Libos, or even the wash-house of Salens to Layrac, and the Saint-Julien, Fargues-sur-Ourbise. This distinction received is in addition to his bronze medal of tourism awarded by the minister in 1999. A route-marking the realization of a dream of youth, Jacqueline Jaouen had always dreamed of doing the show in the way of Ginger Rogers, the famous actor and american dancer. An artist who loved the Camesira as his child, with love anchored to the bottom of it’s heritage and a deep attachment to his department.
