“This significant financial contribution will allow the local organization to pursue its mission and better achieve its objectives,” said IsaBelle in a press release. “For 25 years, the CDC du Haut-Saint-Laurent has worked hard to promote community development,” she added, noting the organization is doing remarkable work.

On June 30, IsaBelle announced funding in the amount of $16,202 to the Chateauguay Valley Community Information Services organization, which publishes the biweekly newspaper The Gleaner, as part of the Aide au fonctionnement pour les médias communautaires program. “I recognize the important role that our newspaper, The Gleaner, plays in the lives of our citizens,” said IsaBelle in a press release. “This newspaper is an excellent source of local and regional information,” she noted, adding that it also highlights the region’s cultural, social community and business sectors. “I congratulate the board of directors and their journalists for their excellent work.” (SR)
