Volunteers’ Gala - Tribute Paid to Our Volunteers' Efforts!
ROSEMÈRE, October 21, 2019 – Last Saturday, October 19, 2019, the traditional Volunteers' Gala was held to pay tribute to the commitment and dedication of many Rosemère volunteers.
More than 320 people attended this annual evening event, which took place at Externat Sacré-Cœur under the theme "Once upon a time". For the occasion, the guests dressed up as storybook characters, in beautiful costumes! There were many different characters and plenty of originality!
"If Rosemère is such an attractive and welcoming town with such a vibrant community life, it is thanks to the involvement and devotion of outstanding people—our volunteers. Whether in the field of sports, culture, crafts or community life, these people make the dreams of many youngsters and adults come true. They well deserve a special tribute for their commitment!" stated Rosemere Mayor Eric Westram.
The Town, which has more than 500 volunteers working with approximately 45 organizations, took the opportunity to present a symbolic cheque for $500,000. This amount represents the Town's involvement with its community organizations.
