The Choir Taco Party actually started around 7:30 p.m. The choir members, some spouses and a few other important people, took the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing evening in what was one of the few in-person gatherings in Saint-Irénée since Corona 19. the virus has led to restrictions on gatherings. Choir members and their guests were treated to chicken, beef and pork tacos, rice, beans, quesadillas, water, tea, wine and cookies for dessert. The delicious tacos were served by Alfonso, from Tamayo Catering.
