Haunting at Goodrich Library
Mr.Goodrich, founder of the Goodrich Memorial Library (portrayed by Royden Lancaster) guides patrons through Haunted Library On Saturday, October 20, the Goodrich Memorial Library was invaded by the most amazing Haunted House display ever seen in Newport. Many thanks are extended to the Bussiere, Smith, Lancaster, and Chase families (with friends Jorden and Jade) for the extraordinary amount of creativity, time, and work that went into this production. Larry Krzysko provided all the spooky exterior decorations and assisted in staging; donations of many different materials were kindly provided by the Pick and Shovel; and a last minute contribution by Terry Kibbee was a welcome addition. Fabulous job everyone! Every library is a vital component of its unique community’s life. As such, it is critically important to have the support of all segments of the community. Partnerships between families, friends, businesses, and other organizations are essential if our libraries are to continue to grow and serve the needs of the community. Thank you for your continuing support.
Ahugecampaign to mobilise the employers in the Estrie region was announced yesterday morning during a breakfast organized by the regional Chamber of Commerce. This initiative was started to counter the recruitment difficulties and the rarity of manpower, both now and in the future, in several sectors.
“This campaign aims to entice as many employers as possible to join in and to create an internet site that promotes local jobs and the quality of life in the Estrie: CoupdecoeurEstrie.com,” commented Patricia Gauthier, the general director of the CHUS and the representative of the health and social service establishments in the Estrie.
All enterprises in this region can join this site, without charge, by filling out the information for employers directly on the site.
“In effect, all employers must fill out their form and the links necessary in order to ensure the most representation of our region. It acts as a complimentary strategy to the present initiatives of employers for recruitment,” said Sherbrooke mayor Bernard Sevigny, the representative of the cities in the region.
At the beginning of 2013, once the website is complete, an important publicity campaign will direct, principally, young people between the ages of eighteen and thirty-five to the site.
Employers can get more information about this initiative by calling 1 855 780-2220 or by emailing info@ CoupdecoeurEstrie.com.
A new website to help employers recruit personnel was launched by (l. to r.): Patricia Gauthier, director of the CHUS; Estrie CRE president Maurice Bernier; Luce Samoisette, Université de Sherbrooke rector; Wilfred Morin, vice-president of Exp; Alexandre Blanchette, president Forum-Jeunesse Estrie; Anne-Marie Ethier, Emploi-Quebec Estrie; and Sherbrooke mayor Bernard Sevigny.
