An­dré Gaulin hon­oured by Car­i­tas

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Sher­brooke

Last week, Stanstead’s An­dré Gaulin re­ceived, along with nine other Town­ship­pers, the Prix Abbé De­seve Cormier for his many years of work as a vol­un­teer for Car­i­tas Estrie. For more than forty years, Mr. Gaulin has been the main or­ga­nizer for the Share the Bread

Cam­paign for all of the Stanstead sec­tors. At first, he was busy with the Fitch Bay and Ayer’s Cliff sec­tors, fi­nally switch­ing to only the Stanstead sec­tor which is quite large. He also vol­un­tar­ily helped to build up a so­cial net­work of vol­un­teers who can some­day take over.

The awards were given to one rep­re­sen­ta­tive from each of Car­i­tas’ nine re­gions in the Estrie, as well as to the mayor of Sher­brooke, Bernard Se­vi­gny, to high­light his par­tic­i­pa­tion as the Hon­orary Pres­i­dent of the 50th an­niver­sary of the Share the Bread Cam­paign.

This award com­mem­o­rates the Abbé De­seve Cormier who, for forty years, was the gen­eral di­rec­tor of Car­i­tas. He put in place 52 or­ga­ni­za­tions or ser­vices for the most marginal­ized of so­ci­ety, such as the Mois­son Estrie, La

Mai­son Aube-Lu­miere, Se­cours Ami­tie, the Comp­toir

Fa­mil­ial, La Villa Marie-Claire, and La Grande Ta­ble.
