Le Vortex de Bagotville - - NEWS -

Wo­men's Day was ce­le­bra­ted on March 15th at CFB Ba­got­ville and more than 200 people at­ten­ded the confe­rence di­ner and ce­le­bra­to­ry ac­ti­vi­ties.

The event be­gan with a din­ner- confe­rence where the Mem­ber of Parliament for Jon­quière, Ka­rine Tru­del, spoke about the place of wo­men in de­ci­sion­ma­king, work- life ba­lance and the im­por­tance of fam-

ily sup­port for ca­reers.

Mrs. Tru­del's speech was more like an open conver­sa­tion with the crowd. "It was a very po­si­tive mes­sage. She said that eve­ry­thing is pos­sible for wo­men and that being a wo­man should not stop us from doing what we want to do in life, "said Cyn­thia Ruest, the event co­or­di­na­tor.

The new pro­gram adop­ted this year al­lo­wed more time for the guests to vi­sit the thir­ty kiosks set up for the oc­ca­sion.

Thanks to all the ma­jor spon­sors in­clu­ding Eter­nel Spa, Ca­nex and guest contri­bu­tions, 80 at­ten­dees took home more than $ 7000 in to­tal prizes. "We had a lot of good re­views. I be­lieve eve­ryone was sa­tis­fied, "concludes Ms. Ruest.
