Our guest this week is John Tousignant, the Executive Director of the Franco-American Centre in Manchester, NH. For years he’s been working day in and day out helping to promote the Franco culture, so we wanted to have him on to tell his story. Some of the things Jesse and John talk about are how John grew up in a house that didn’t speak French and you’ll learn about all the non-profits he’s worked with through the years. We hope you enjoy the episode.Franco-American Centre Facebook Page - https://www.facebook.com/centrefrancoamericanFranco-American Centre Website - https://www.facnh.com/
