Panier du bonheur campaign
For the 30th year in a row, the Bagotville Air Traffic Control section is launching its ' Panier de Bonheur' campaign to help less fortunate families as we approach the holiday season.
During this campaign, nonperishable food and money are collected to redistribute, in the form of grocery baskets, a few days before Christmas in collaboration with the Saint- Vincent- dePaul Society of La Baie and the Lower Saguenay. The door- to- door collection of food will be back in early December. Residents are encouraged to consider keeping one or two commodities that will be picked up by the ' Panier de Bonheur' team during this collection. Several boxes will also be placed in the different buildings of the base in order to collect donations on site. Inter- mess hockey games will also be on the program for December to help raise funds. For a small fee of $ 3 or a food contribution, all members of the community will be able to attend a hockey game with base's best talent taking part. To find out the exact dates and to find out more about the activities that remain to be confirmed, you are invited to consult the Base bulletin board.
