Help light up lo­cal stu­dents

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

ThisSatur­day, lo­cal mu­si­cian Mike Goudreau will do a ben­e­fit per­for­mance at La Vielle Douane restau­rant, in Stanstead, to help en­cour­age some very young per­form­ers in town. The restau­rant, for its part, will do­nate $10 from ev­ery Ta­ble d’hote meal of $29.95 to Sun­ny­side Ele­men­tary School to buy light­ing equip­ment for the school’s stage.

“I was at the Christ­mas show at the school and we could barely see the kids on stage. We were so dis­ap­pointed with the lights,” com­mented the or­ga­nizer of the fundraiser, Vin­cent Boudreau, who ma­jored in The­atre at Con­cor­dia Univer­sity and has a child go­ing to the school.

The school needs about $800 to pur­chase good light­ing equip­ment and the school’s prin­ci­pal, Steve Weary, has been able to come up with a few hun­dred dol­lars. “It’s im­por­tant for kids to have the right en­vi­ron­ment to suc­ceed in,” added Mr. Boudreau. “Next we’ll work on fix­ing the lights in the score­board in the gym.”

The event Lu­mieres sur nos fu­turs artistes will be held on April 20th, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Reser­va­tions can be made, and are rec­om­mended, by call­ing 819 876-2960.
