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

A historic handover occurred on April 7: the official transfer of ownership of the Quyon Recreation Park by community group Quyon Ensemble (QE) to the Municipality of Pontiac (MoP). The land, worth approximately $322,000, was symbolically sold by QE to the MoP for a dollar. "For the last couple of years we've been in negotiations," Roger Larose, mayor of the MoP, explained. "As a municipality, we've been wanting to have a recreation park in Luskville and one in Quyon. Through negotations, they [QE] were open to sit down and talk about it."

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.
