Our older friends will gather with volunteers and staff to celebrate LBFE’s founder Armand Marquiset. Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly (LBFE) was started in France in 1946 by Frenchman Armand Marquiset as les petits frères des Pauvres (Little Brothers of the Poor). The organization served elderly Parisians who had lost their families and savings in World War II.

Armand Marquiset’s motto, flowers before bread, expresses the belief that it is the human touch that makes life worth living.
