The next Communi-T Night will take place in the warm and festive atmosphere of the holidays. As part of the event, Notre-Dame de Huntingdon Elementary School will open its doors to organizations and to the community, and will welcome a white-bearded guest wearing a distinctive red suit. All citizen from the Haut-Saint-Laurent are invited to this special Night where everything is free. Save the date: December 5, 5-7 p.m., 15 York Street.
A place to find everything
Twenty-five organizations confirmed their presence and will provide information on services available to citizens between the ages of 0-100+ from the Haut-Saint-Laurent territory. In short, there will be something for everyone, in English and French. We even offer a free spaghetti dinner- take a break from cooking and dishes- and a free daycare service for 0-7 year-olds.
In just one evening, you can discover resources available for seniors; new residents; sports and cultural enthusiasts; families; parents of infants; preschool children; caregivers; volunteers; environmental supporters and more.
Ideas for a humble Christmas
During the event, a special activity prepared by students of Notre-Dame will be hosted by the coordinator of spiritual life and community involvement. The goal? Find alternatives to consumption by building a suggestion box filled with actions that will bring happiness around oneself, without fee or reward. Children and adults attending the Communi-T Night will have two options: draw an action to accomplish from the box, or find inspiration by reading all the actions listed by the students.
The Tree of solutions, started during the previous Night, will be on site in order to be completed with more ideas to eliminate poverty in all its forms.
People who would like to bring a non-perishable food item for the food bank are welcome to drop it in the designated box in the school hall.
The Community Nights are an opportunity to cultivate a sense of belonging to the Haut-Saint-Laurent by stimulating community development and creating networking opportunities for citizens, all free of charge. They provide opportunities for engaging in meaningful encounters and forging bridges between Francophone and Anglophone communities, between organizations and citizens, and between citizens and their fellow citizens. You will find on-site information on the resources available in sports and leisure, as well as services in care, transportation, health, culture, communication and environment, as well as courses and offers of support in community and economic development.
