Fête de quartier de Chomedey takes place Sat. Aug. 24

(TLN) The organizing committee for the Fête de quartier de Chomedey is inviting people of all ages to come out and take part in the 11th annual gathering which will be taking place on Saturday Aug. 24 at Labelle Park, 799 Loranger St. in Chomedey beginning at 1 pm.

In keeping with longstanding tradition, the overall themes at this year’s event will be accessibility, eco-responsibility and citizen participation. Various forms of entertainment will be presented during the day, including shows, children’s activities and workshops.

Activities all day

Many community groups from Chomedey are currently putting together a schedule of entertaining activities. A stage will be available on which registered performers will be able to make presentations. As well, a health booth will make available free information on health issues, as well as healthy snacks.

The day will come to an end with a big prize draw, a circus presentation and a friendly soccer match. Everything will be free. This year, around 1,000 people are expected.

A citizen initiative

The Fête de Quartier de Chomedey is a citizen initiative that emerged from the Chomedey social forum held in 2008. It is led by citizens as well as partner members of the Comité de Développement Local de Chomedey (CDLC). The committee is always looking for new members.

The Fête de Quartier de Chomedey is made possible with support from several key sponsors, including the Centre Intégré de Santé et Services Sociaux de Laval, the City of Laval, IGA Extra Gagnon et filles, the Caisse populaire Desjardins de Chomedey, and Chomedey MNA Guy Ouellette.
