Graduates honoured at Town Hall
Yesterday evening, before the monthly council meeting in Stanstead all of the town’s recent graduates were honoured. Those who attended received special achievement certificates from mayor Philippe Dutil as well as hearty applause from all the councillors and the people attending the meeting, several of whom came from both the English and French school boards for the occasion. Once the certificates were handed out, the names of the graduates were put into a hat and one name was drawn to win the prize of $200.
“Thank you for your perseverance. Getting an education brings value to our community and we wish you continued success,” said mayor Dutil. Julie Dubois, the director of Jardins-des-Frontiere, added: “You are all fine examples for the youth of our community.”
