The Maison de la Famille de Quyon (MdlFQ) continues to be a remarkable and vital mainstay in this community. In her AGM notes, Beaudet compared the Centre to a lighthouse which stands and shines over the community of Pontiac.
Kids and their adults came in droves to the third annual Parents of the Municipality of Pontiac (PMP) picnic event, held at the Community Centre in Luskville on June 17. There was art, there was craft, there were bubbles to blow, a mini-bouncy castle to pounce on and three -- count them, THREE -- fire engines to climb on. AND snacks! What more could the under-5 set ask for?
Se mettre en forme et rester fort sont intégralement liés pour une vie en santé.

The second painter hailing from the Municipality of Pontiac on the Pontiac Artists' Associations' studio tour this year is Cheryl Dolan. She welcomed visitors to her charming Quyon home studio this weekend as part of the unique opportunity for the public to see where art is made.

It's sunny, the grass is green and the park is calling! Pack up your picnic basket and come to the third annual Parents of the Municipality of Pontiac (PMP) children's picnic on Saturday at the Luskville Community Centre. (The above image is from last year evidently!)
A good breakfast is the best way to start the day. And, every day across Canada, volunteers assemble at elementary schools at 6:30 a.m. to make sure young students get that best start.
On June 6, Le Club des petits déjeuners (The Breakfast Club) volunteers from Notre Dame de la Joie in Luskville and Ste. Marie in Quyon gathered to be rewarded with a breakfast of their own. But first they served breakfast for the kids of course!
Our municipality has many hidden treasures and some of those brightly coloured gems are our visual artists.

A great big thanks to the Municipality of Pontiac, the Quebec Ministry of Public Security, the Canadian Red Cross and our wonderful military for their long hours of very difficult work during the recent flood. I was very impressed with the way in which they handled the devastation it caused.
