Les P.É.P.I.N.E.S. was founded in 1992 with the in­cen­tive of in­te­grat­ing more women to be in­volved in the de­ci­sions made within their com­mu­nity. The or­ga­ni­za­tion is in­volved in an ar­ray of ac­tiv­i­ties such as con­sul­ta­tion and rep­re­sen­ta­tion of women’s in­ter­ests on the re­gional scene, in­for­ma­tion and train­ing for women, as well as aware­ness and pro­mo­tion the equal­ity and eq­uity. Their area of in­ter­ven­tion is the Estrie Re­gion.

Their team is com­prised of women from the MRC de l’Estrie who work in fields as di­verse as com­mu­ni­ca­tion, ed­u­ca­tion and business. Mem­bers at­tain ex­per­tise in so­cial in­ter­ven­tion, hu­man re­source man­age­ment, eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, ca­reer coun­sel­ing, ed­u­ca­tion and so­cial sciences.

The “Soirée Ae­quitas” held on De­cem­ber 4th, 2014, was ded­i­cated to honor women in the Estrie re­gion who dis­play an ex­em­plary lead­er­ship role in their en­vi­ron­ment. A se­lec­tion com­mit­tee from this or­ga­ni­za­tion vis­ited each MRC in the Estrie re­gion to choose the most de­serv­ing can­di­dates of which Mrs. Bren­dalee Pi­iro­nen, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the Wales Home in Cleve­land was one of the se­lected few!

The Wales Home is proud to have Pi­iro­nen rec­og­nized for her achieve­ments in geri­atric health care and look for­ward to her con­tin­ued suc­cess. Bren­dalee thanked her col­leagues, vol­un­teers and the Board of Direc­tors for their support. She ded­i­cated this award in mem­ory of her mother who in­spired her to de­vote her­self to the health­care field.

Also hon­ored dur­ing the event was Magog mayor Vicki May Hamm who, be­sides run­ning the City of Magog, is in­volved in many other re­gional and provin­cial causes.
