Why Langlois is or should be world famous

So are the citizens of Langlois delusional??

WE THINK NOT.

Reasons:

1) We take pride in the fact that the name Langlois stirs up so much interest in the pronunciation. The subject is a great ice breaker  and is often the first question asked by visitors.

Langlois is a variant of the French "L'anglais" meaning the Englishman which seems to indicate the family name started when some English showed in France post-Norman conquest era. The variations in pronunciation stem from Anglicization and then Americanization down through the years.  There are variations still among Guernsey (home of our founding family) and Jersey Islands The name is not quite on par with the Welsh town of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwy rndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. So really, one might  we have it easy, but  is still up for debate.  One of most accepted version is Langless stemming from a phonetic version of the 1860 Federal census of our Founding Family

 

  

  

However, the citation in Oregon's Names; How to Say Them and Where They are Located? by Bert Webber ( a well respected historian) lists the pronunciation as LANG lois.

The locals have their own take on the name: Lang lois  Langwau, Lang o ise, Lang lewis , Lang lis , Lang loy and probably more. Here are some samples from us locals. 


Natuere Time Yoga with Heather at Dragonfly Farm

Date: 

Thursday, June 22, 2017 - 12:30pm

 

 

 

 

12: 30-1:30

I am partnering with Dragonfly Farm to give you an incredible outdoor yoga experience every third Thursday in June, July, and August. Nature is calling, let's answer, yoga style!

All levels welcome. This will be a gentle slow flowing class with the intention of cultivating calm and relaxation. Come prepared to do yoga on slightly uneven ground, in the sun and possibly wind. Rain and wet fog cancel. Bring a mat if you have one, I will have a few on hand to borrow. A small blanket or towel, sunblock, hat, sunglasses and light jacket are all good things to have should you need them.

Feel free to bring a picnic lunch for after class and look around the nursery. Maybe you'll find yourself some nature to bring home with you!

Sliding scale fee of $10-$15/class with 25% of the proceeds going to The Trust for Public Land.

"Trust for Public Land works to protect the places people care about and to create close-to-home parks—particularly in and near cities, where 80 percent of Americans live. Our goal is to ensure that every child has easy access to a safe place to play in nature. We also conserve working farms, ranches, and forests; lands of historical and cultural importance; rivers, streams, coasts, and watersheds; and other special places where people can experience nature close at hand."
