PREMIER’S VOLUNTEER SERVICE AWARD 2017

On April 24, 2017 members of the Ste-Agathe Community Development Inc. were honoured as recipients of the Premier’s Volunteer Service Award 2017 under the community group category.

It was a great honour for the current Board of directors to receive this award but we would be remiss if we did not also recognize all those committee members who preceded us including the many, many volunteers.

To those volunteers who were directors on previous boards; to those who chose to chair these boards & committees; to the many who worked the canteen at our Cheyenne Summer Festival; to the volunteers who worked the registration table for the Ste-Agathe Charity Golf Tournament; to those who gave of their time to cut grass and plant seedlings in Cartier Recreational Park; to those who flooded the ice at the outdoor rink; to the many who assisted in our fight against the 1997 Flood of the century; to all of you, we owe you a huge debt of gratitude.

These are just a very few of the numerous tasks that many, many volunteers have completed over the years. We have been reminded through media over the past week that this was the 20th year anniversary of the devastation caused by the Flood of the Century. As a community we have shown resilience and perseverance and for that today we are stronger.

To all our community volunteers, we are very proud to share this award with you.

2016 looking fantastic for Cartier Park

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.
