It was an afternoon of fun.

On Saturday June 17th, despite the non perfect weather, neighbours gathered together in Parc la Croisée to express their community spirit at this year's annual Neighbours Day event.
Young and old alike, gathered in the park to fraternize with old friends, make new ones, enjoy music, games, a good BBQ and more!
It was an afternoon of fun, laughter, and comradeship.

A very special thanks goes to Joseph Mouaikel, a La Croisée community resident, and Moe Atallah who offered and prepared the wonderful food at our event.

Also, a big thank you to all the volunteers who made this event possible: Annic McGuire, Louis Martinet, Charles Martinet, Angela and Warren Hager, Halina, Jamie and Jack Hagar, Josée Sisson, Lisa Sattler, Allana Hayes, Sean Stevenson, Lyne Forget-Lanthier, Sylvie Lefebvre, Mike Girouard and Ronan Bosch.

La Croisée – learning road safety and having fun, too!

After having to postpone due to bad weather, many neighbours, friends, and organisations came together for our 4th Annual Community Bike Day on Saturday May 20th.

This year, more organisations joined our event but once again, Velo-Service provided guidance on bicycle maintenance. The Gatineau Police Bike Patrol division provided lessons on riding safety while the Director of Mobio-O, Jean-Maxime Lemerise, was present and offered his support. Our event was also registered with United Nations Global Road Safety Week- 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland who provided a lot of information on shared, global initiatives about road safety.

Road safety, managing speed in our neighbourhood, bicycle maintenance, safety and fun, all together made this a great day in the park. And like all our community events, it was simply born by the flow of ideas supported by residents and volunteers. 

Our community offers thanks to many generous and encouraging local sponsors and supporters for this event: Velo-Service, Gatineau Police Department, Pro-Cycle Bicyclette, Mobi-O, Provigo, IGA, The General Store and the City of Gatineau.

Special thanks go to Melanie Brassard (Street Representative) and Annic McGuire (Planning Director) who led coordination of this event.  ...and to our Community Association support for planning, advertising, and material support.
Also, thank you, to all the event volunteers who contributed in so many ways, from set-up to registration, music, food and bike route safety, - thank you: Angela Hagar, Chad Butler, Cristi Parapalita, Gilles Gougeon, Joelle Cléroux, Gaston Gagnon, Louisa Olvera, Lise Boileau, Anne Martinet, Louis Martinet, Dina Exantus, Gaston Gagnon, Lyne Forget-Lanthier and Tracy McCulloch.

A special thanks also goes to Velo-Service and the Gatineau Police Department for their education initiatives with children regarding bicycle safety and maintenance.

And most of all, thanks to all our residents and friends who simply came out and had fun together.
