The Caisse Desjardins

de Stanstead was founded seventy-five years ago on Fe­bru­ary 1st, 1937. On Mon­day, it of­fi­cially launched the year-long cel­e­bra­tion with a visit from one of the found­ing mem­bers of the first Caisse in Rock Is­land, 96 year-old Denis Daviau, and the founders of the Caisse Desjardins it­self in 1900: Alphonse and Dorimene Desjardins!

“Dorimene played a key role in the found­ing of the Desjardins Group,” com­mented the Caisse’s com­mu­nity rep­re­sen­ta­tive

Marie-eve Rien­deau who played the part of Dorimene. Caisse em­ployee Pa­trick Dion played the part of Alphonse.

Re­fresh­ments will be served to cus­tomers of the fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion through­out the week and sur­prise gifts will be given out ran­domly to mem­bers who visit their branch.
