History

In 1883, a young man attended a meeting in Montreal to hear Bishop Grandin speak on the Western Canadian missions. Encourage by the potential advantages of a mission settlement, 17 year old Fleuri Perron moved to Egg Lake. After marrying Lina Laliberte, Fleuri settled at St. Albert in 1896 and, for the next 30 years, played a significant role in the commercial and civic development of St. Albert.He was the proprietor of the Windsor Hotel and later constructed the Royal Hotel in St. Albert. From 1900 to 1914, Fleuri owned the St. Albert Brickyard. While the brickyard was operating, Fleuri and Cheri Hebert purchased a general store in 1904. Fleuri also served as the first president of the Alberta French Canadian Association, on the first town council, and as mayor of St. Albert for three terms. In 1912, Fleur ran excursion paddle board tours on Big Lake. His store burned down in 1919 but he soon opened a butcher shop across the street. After a brief stay in California, Fleuri returned to set up a business again. He died in 1931. His son Eugene was born in 1911 in St. Albert. He worked in the store form 1928 to 1930, taking it over after his father's death. In August 1936 Eugene pruchased his own store, which he sold in September 1973. Eugene and Evelyn Hogan married in 1941 but were separated while Eugene was in the Air Force during the Second World War. Active in community affairs, he served on executive boards for for St. Albert Catholic Church, School District #3, Town planning and Community Hall. Eugene died in 1989. His son, David, directed his own Company, Oaktown Management, in St. Albert.
