Quin­zaine kicks off

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

The Ta­ble de de­vel­oppe­ment so­cial Mem­phrem­a­gog (TDSM) has planned a first, spe­cial event to pro­mote so­cial de­vel­op­ment and sol­i­dar­ity: la Quin­zaine which will run from Oc­to­ber 27th to Novem­ber 9th in the Mem­phrem­a­gog re­gion. Ev­ery­one is wel­come to take part in the dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties.

“The idea be­hind the Quin­zaine was to cre­ate mo­men­tum in the au­tumn by com­bin­ing sev­eral events con­nected to so­cial de­vel­op­ment in the space of a few days,” said Marie-Denise Morency, the pres­i­dent of the TDSM. “They could be new events or ex­ist­ing ones that took place at another time of the year be­fore. We hope that peo­ple re­al­ize that so­cial de­vel­op­ment and sol­i­dar­ity as well as so­cial economies come in sev­eral forms and touch dif­fer­ent spheres of ac­tiv­ity.”

The com­plete sched­ule of ac­tivites for the Quin­zaine can be found at www.de­vel­oppe­mentso­cialm.org.
