On behalf of the Halifax Regional Council, it gives me great pleasure to extend warm greetings and a special welcome to all involved with the Halifax 2008 29e Finale des Jeux de l'Acadie taking place in Halifax Regional Municipality, June 27 - July 1, 2008.

I wish to congratulate the Finale des Jeux de l'Acadie for hosting this celebrated athletic and cultural event featuring the largest gathering of young Francophone athletes from Atlantic Canada in our municipality.

The Games promise to be exciting providing participants with the opportunity to make new friends and fond memories while demonstrating sportsmanship, camaraderie, and team spirit.

To the many volunteers, coaches, players and parents who helped make this event happen, thank you.

Enjoy the enthusiasm as you take part in the 29th Acadian Games for the first time in Halifax Regional Municipality. I wish you all success and trust your experience will be truly memorable.

Respectfully, I remain

Peter J. Kelly,
