Haunt­ing at Goodrich Li­brary

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - New­port, VT Sher­brooke

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.
