Our Neighbours Day was fun!

Our Neighbours Day gathering was held June 7th in Parc LaCroisee and the weather was perfect.

There were about 300 neighbours, young and old, who came to hear some of our local musicians, play some games, enjoy some arts and crafts, relax with neighbours and enjoy a barbecue.

On June 7th we were also grateful for:

  • Richcraft Homes and Gerik Construction for their financial support for this community event.
  • M&M Meats
  • Mr. Paul Drouin, with the Aylmer Sector of the City of Gatineau.
  • Pat, Amie and Ryan from PM Event Services for their help with our sound system and their community support
  • all our volunteers: Mike & Sylvie, Derek and Lisa, Todd and Corrine, and Sally. April, Christine and their Arts and Games group, Hee Young, Laura, Josee and Melanie; Emma, Cristi - our great community MC; Lisa, Matt, Larry, Scott and Pierre in the food tent; our set-up crew Mike , Derek, Serge, Yves, Pierre, Larry, Scott, Pierre and many others who stepped in for the day.
  • our neighbourhood musicians who accepted our invitation with courage and showed off their talent. This was certainly different for most of them, compared to practicing in their living rooms. Thank you, Kevin, Mark, Katherin, Ameila, Anisa, Maxim, Isabelle, Cristi and our neighbourhood magician, Mr. Enmao Zhang.
  •  and for everyone who attended, it is always good to see one another and a lot of fun when we get together!
