Since Le Journal will not be published tomorrow Sunday or January 1st and 2nd and I will be away at the beginning of 2024, I would like to wish you a happy birthday in advance Real Bilodeau (Photo) from Saints-Anges (in New Beauce), who will be 80 years old on January 2nd. The former chemistry teacher at Saint-Anselme high school has been married to Lise Lehoux for almost 60 years and has four children and eight grandchildren. He spends his free time gardening, reading, cooking, doing puzzles and has been a “secret agent” for several months. When he turned 80, his daughter Stéphanie gave him puzzles to solve and missions to complete. Also, Secret Agent Bilodeau, if you found this article this morning, your mission is accomplished! But rest assured, this note will not self-destruct in the next few seconds. In the photo is Réal with his daughter Stéphanie and his partner Lise.
