For the 19th consecutive year, Clubs Optimistes of the Centre du Québec District will bring together hundreds of volunteers on May 13th, 2017, at Camp Papillon. Coordinated by Mrs. Diane Michaud, Rodrigue Michaud, Paul St-Amour, Monique Legault, and Robert Desrochers, the Clubs Optimistes Work Bee is much more than a single day involvement. As a matter of fact, its organizing committee participates in various events throughout the year to raise extra funds, to find sponsors, to recruit volunteers, and to plan a whole series of projects.
The Club Optimistes legacy is priceless as are testimony the amazing renovations of some fifteen cabins that constitute what is now generally known as the Faubourg Optimistes.
For further information or to register for the Optimistes Work Bee of May 13th, 2017, contact Diane Michaud without delay.
Every year, the work bees of the Quebec Society for Disabled Children bring together volunteers from all walks of life to take part in preparing our facilities in Montreal, in Saint-Alphonse-Rodriguez, and Otterburn Park. Numerous groups and companies participate in the adventure such as Hydro-Québec, the Sûreté du Québec, the Société de transport de Montréal, Clubs Optimistes, Pratt & Whitney Canada, KPMG, Videotron, Plastique GPR, Club Richelieu, and many others.
There is work for everyone! Carpentry, electricity, plumbing, raking, interior and exterior painting, the talents of each participant is put to good use! After the Papillon Bee, as if by magic, the Camp Papillon site soon regains its original beauty as if there had been no winter at all!
The Society’s Work Bees are an opportunity of carry out some wonderful projects. For example, during the last editions of the Bee, Camp Papillon acquired a library, a terrace with a panoramic view of Lake Pierre and a covered playground which enables the youngsters to take part in outdoor activities in case of rain.
All these accomplishments were made possible thanks to the support of numerous organisations and volunteers who unstintingly gave of their time to carry out these projects.
