As of last month, the Maison de la Famille Quyon (MdlFQ) is the new host of the Sharing Store, a place for people who are experiencing food-related problems to get discounted groceries
The new site is a step forward for the Store, which has been operating from a small room in the corner of the Beach Barn, that was proving ineffective in a number of ways.
With funding from McGill, Connexions is pleased to offer the Health and Social Services Community Leadership Bursary Program. The Bursary provides financial incentive for students from the Outaouais region pursuing full-time studies in health and social services at a Quebec government-recognized educational institution to return to (or stay in) their region to work and serve their communities after completing their studies.
This bursary aims to reach students with English and French language skills who are pursuing full-time studies in the area of health and social services and who have demonstrated a commitment to, and involvement in, their community.

Life becomes limited if you can't see properly.... Can't see the chalkboard, can't cross the street, can't read warnings, can't drive a car.
With this in mind, Catherine Beaudet, Director General of la Maison de la Famille Quyon, has organized a visit from a team of optometrists working with Bonhomme a Lunette, a Montreal-based organization specializing in low-cost eye ware.
Bonjour! Bonne année !
I hope you have had a Merry Christmas!
Encore une fois c’est le temps pour notre recensement locale (Breckenridge-Dunrobin). Si vous avez une mangeoire d'oiseaux (avec nourriture) dans votre cours arrière, svp recensiez les oiseaux présents le 2 janvier. Vous n'avez que indiquer à la fin de la journée le nombre total d'individus (maximum) de chaque espèce présente en même temps. Vous pouvez communiquer vos résultats par courriel à moi, avant 17h.
Are you an early riser? Do you like to work as a team? Do you adore milk mustaches and jam on little fingers? Then you must join us as a volunteer at the Breakfast Club at Notre Dame de la Joie school in Luskville.
It makes everyone feel good!

In 1977, Terry Fox lost his right leg to osteosarcoma; it had to be amputated six inches above his knee.
In 1980, Terry started his Marathon of Hope, dipping his prosthetic leg in the Atlantic Ocean off the Newfoundland coast. And we know how the rest of the story goes.
This year, Shawville's Terry Fox Run celebrates it's 36th year.

They say it takes a village to raise a child and the Parents de la Municipalite de Pontiac (PMP) are determined to create and support that village.

Launched mid-June in 2015, the PMP's activities have included dancing lessons, workshops on body image and healthy eating, as well as a story-telling hour and a picnic event. PMP organizers estimate at least 40 to 50 families have been part of this years activities.
Guess what I saw by the side of the road in Wakefield this afternoon? I don't know it's Giant Hogweed for a fact, but it has all the signs: purple blotches on the stem, large ragged leaves and a truly menacing head of thick white flowers.
