The McGill Young Alumni invite you to enjoy a day at the Sucrerie de la Montagne in Rigaud (only 45 minutes from Montreal). Enjoy the Sucrerie's family-style recipes, cooked in wood-burning ovens, and satisfy your sweet tooth with toffee and maple syrup desserts. In the afternoon, take a walk through the woods or a ride on a horse-drawn wagon. An enjoyable day for the entire family! Lunch is included!
