ROSEMÈRE, August 20, 2020 – The Town of Rosemère is pleased to invite the population to the second edition of Harvest Day, which will take place on Saturday, September 12, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., in front of the municipal library.
In order to ensure that government orders are followed to minimize the risks of spreading COVID-19, this second edition will offer a more simplified program than last year, but just as colourful!
To minimize gatherings, Harvest Day 2020 will be based on a "public market" format, where a number of Rosemère merchants working in the food industry will be on hand. This event will, of course, comply with the health measures put in place by public health.
"The main objective of Harvest Day is to collect fruits, vegetables and non-perishable foods for Moisson Laurentides. This is why it is essential for us to maintain this charitable event. Also, it is a great opportunity to encourage our local merchants. Come and encourage them and, at the same time, contribute to a good cause for people in need!" stated Mayor Eric Westram.
In order to minimize the handling of objects and the distance between the participants, the honey extraction workshops will exceptionally be held in a virtual way. Residents will therefore be able to view the extraction of honey from our Rosemère hives in the comfort of their own homes. Details will be announced at a later date.
Please note that for this occasion, Grande-Côte Roadwill be closed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. between Adélard and Hector streets. A detour will be set up on Labelle Street for local traffic.
