The Ste. Agathe Cartier Park is getting ready for the summer and we’re anxious to host the Cheyenne Family Fest, a Ritchot Chamber of Commerce event, campers, family functions and a couple of weddings. The park has recently purchased a new commercial lawn mower that will prove to make the park upkeep quicker and easier for our volunteers. We have also just been approved by the Ste. Agathe Community Development Corp to commence the construction of an interlocking patio and fire pit area that will surely be a beautiful feature and be an excellent feature for the renters.

The park is in need of a couple of things, although our volunteers do an excellent job at maintaining the yards, we need to trim trees along Hwy 305 to make it easier for tilling the soil and it would be a tedious task with only a few people. We are looking for twelve to fifteen volunteers to help us on Thursday May 19 from 6:30pm till approximately 8:30pm. We would need four chainsaws, branch shears and saws to do this job quickly and efficiently. Please respond to alain@steagatheservice.com if you could lend a hand and weather permitting we’ll complete this task on that day.

Also, the Cartier Park is looking to hire a part time summer student to work at the park. The tasks would include grass cutting, yard maintenance, camping fee collection, garbage maintenance, cleaning etc. The hours will be flexible and some occasional weekend work will be required. The student would be working alongside volunteers as well as alone. We require an employee between the ages of 15-19 years old that has experience with lawn maintenance equipment, hardworking and dependable. If you know of any students that would be interested please contact Alain Robert @ alain@steagatheservice.com or text to (204)746-5737. We will hire a student before the end of May.
