THE THIRD EDITION OF THE RUSSELL TOWNSHIP’S LOCAL FLAVOURS RENDEZ-VOUS WAS ONCE AGAIN A GREAT SUCCESS

Embrun, Ontario - Monday, November 5, 2018, at the Council meeting, the amount donated to Friends for Life was revealed following the Local Flavours Rendez-Vous.

The event organized by the Economic Development Department took place on October 13, 2018, at the Embrun Community Centre. The 22 booths had the chance to introduce their products to more than 450 attendees during the event.

The Local Flavours Rendez-Vous is also a fundraiser for a local association. Among the proposals we received from community members, the selection committee chose Friends for Life as this year’s beneficiary, who received $7,874.22 from the Township of Russell and another $ 2,000 from Caisse populaire Nouvel-Horizon with their Community Involvement Program, for a grand total of $9,874.22. This non-profit organization is mandated to raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and to support our survivors. The theme of this third edition was Survivor in celebration of breast cancer survivors.

“This event, that bring people from our community together, including our local producers, was once again this year a huge success. We would like to thank all the volunteers, employees and sponsors who helped us organize the third edition of the Local Flavours Rendez-Vous.” Shared Dominique Tremblay, Director of Planning, Building and Economic Development.
