Le Re­nais­sance Manoir St. Fran­cis cel­e­brates 25 years

Sherbrooke Record - - FRONT PAGE - By Matthew Mccully

The Fau­teux fam­ily, own­ers of the Re­nais­sance Manoir St. Fran­cis cel­e­brated 25 years in busi­ness dur­ing a cer­e­mony held yes­ter­day at the Len­noxville lo­ca­tion.

The res­i­dents were treated to a toast with sparkling wine (or gin­ger ale) and a video look­ing back at the manor over the last 25 years.

The cel­e­bra­tion was bit­ter­sweet for manor di­rec­tor Julie Lin­court, who is leav­ing the res­i­dence af­ter nine years.

She gave an emo­tional speech prais­ing the work of the Fau­teux fam­ily in es­tab­lish­ing the se­niors’ res­i­dence and con­stantly work­ing to main­tain and im­prove ser­vices for the res­i­dents.

“The Fau­teux fam­ily took good care of their baby,” Lin­court said, point­ing out that the busi­ness, 25 years later, con­tin­ues to grow with new lo­ca­tions in other parts of the Town­ships.

“It’s like a big fam­ily,” com­mented Lin­court.

Lin­court added that it wasn’t only the work of the Fau­teux fam­ily that made the manor a suc­cess over the last 25 years; she cred­ited the hard work of the staff, many of whom have been there for years, for cre­at­ing a warm and friendly en­vi­ron­ment for the res­i­dents.

In the nine years Lin­court was at the helm, she said there was only one oc­ca­sion dur­ing a se­vere snow storm when the res­i­dence was short staffed, a tes­ta­ment to the ded­i­ca­tion of the em­ploy­ees.

The res­i­dents en­joyed a game of bingo fol­lowed by a cer­e­mony mark­ing the manor’s 25 years; a dance was sched­uled later in the evening fea­tur­ing Ron Hasel­tine.
