WHAT IS THE ORIGIN OF THE NAME “10e AVE”?
There must be hundreds of communities that contain a 10th Avenue. And there are just as many ways to tell their stories.
10e Ave, in this particular case, refers to a winding lakeside country road along which four generations of a single family have made their way. A narrow tree-lined path leading to a cabin that wasn’t winterized in the early days. A warm family home where everyone was close, each bringing a contribution to the common table and sharing happy moments with family and friends. A large tract of land on which to unwind, to have fun, to get together; a little house with a big table, always well-stocked with food, and lots of beds offered by my welcoming grandparents. It was here that I conceived, produced and sold tickets for my very first show in a little annex to this kingdom of my childhood.
It is in homage to this family, in honour of my generous grandparents and my trailblazing mother, that 10th Ave embraces its values: family, sharing, continuity, hope, distinction, perseverance, a sense of responsibility, balance, cooperation, commitment, respect, foresight, boldness, tolerance and the transcendence of self.
– Nancy Florence Savard
