Beaubassin-est Rural Community presented the Merit and Youth Awards, as well as Certificates of Recognition, during the Anniversary Celebration on July 28th, 2016.
The Award for Excellence in the Arts and Culture was awarded to Melvin Gallant of Grand-Barachois, to highlight his cultural involvement in the Acadian community. This literature professor at the Université de Moncton has worked in the field of publishing and creation. Through the years, he has published more than twenty volumes, notably the novel "Le Métis de Beaubassin" and the series of Ti-Jean and Tite-Jeanne that marked several youth. Mr. Gallant is now retired and he spends six months in Grand-Barachois and six months in the south.
The Award for Excellence in Business was presented to the company Seacoast Fishing Supplies Ltd. in Grand-Barachois, to highlight its achievements over the past 30 years. Donald Boudreau is the owner of this company that manufactures wooden lobster traps. It's also a retail store for fishing equipment where you will find everything you need, from electrical equipment to cleaning products. The company exists since 1985 and employs several people.
The prize in the Sports, Recreation and Active Living category was awarded to the new Minor Baseball Association of Beaubassin-est. Last spring, a group of parents decided to revive baseball in the area to enable young people to practice this beautiful sport that played an important role for several athletes. A first meeting took place in April and other meetings followed, and now the first season of the Minor Baseball Association of Beaubassin-est is well underway. The launch took place on Saturday July 23rd at the baseball field in Haute-Aboujagane, with the official throw by none other than Rheal Cormier. Approximately 235 kids are enrolled this season in the Rally Cap, Rookie, Mosquito, Pee Wee and Bantam categories, to play for the Beaubassin Jays.
The Beaubassin-est Youth Award was presented to Mathieu Boudreau of Grand Barachois. This year, he was part of the Robotics Club of the Louis-J.-Robichaud (LJR) school in Shediac who won the 5th place at the Skills Compétences Canada trades and technologies national competition, in June in Moncton.

The municipality presented a recognition award to a pioneer of the Beaubassin-est community, Joe Bourque of Grand Barachois.
