Cardio-Active in the Haut-Saint-Laurent needs a new location

Cardio-Active in the Haut-Saint-Laurent, one of the only training rooms in the region, could be forced to close if a new location cannot be found, and quickly.

The organization, which has been in Room 101 of the Huntingdon Adult Education and Community Centre for the past 16 years, has been asked to leave the school by August 15.

In a press release issued by the organization, its president, Rénee Guernon, laments that while the board of directors has met with the direction at HAECC on two occasions since May 30 to find a possible solution, “Their need for space became too great.”

The organization, which started in 2002 as a way to promote physical activity within the Haut-Saint-Laurent population, has turned to the Town of Huntingdon, as well as local MP Claude DeBellefeuille and MNA Claire IsaBelle, the administration at École secondaire Arthur-Pigeon, different church committees, the Centre Local d’Emploi, and even the CLSC, but with no luck in finding a suitable location.

In a desperate plea for leads or suggestions from the community, Guernon admits “Our plan is to continue our search, but please understand that if we do not find a space in the near future, we will have to put an end to Cardio-Active.”

For additional information concerning this situation, or to offer help, contact Renée Guernon at 450-802-8098. (SR)
