Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL NEWS - Record Staff

The Force de l'ami­tié (Friend­ship Force) Club of the Sher­brooke re­gion is invit­ing the pub­lic to take part in the 14th an­nual walk around Lac des Na­tions on Thurs­day, March 1 be­gin­ning at 6:15 p.m. at the Ar­mand­nadeau Pavil­ion in Jac­ques-cartier Park. The walk is to mark World Friend­ship Day, a mo­ment cel­e­brated through the Friend­ship Force In­ter­na­tional (FFI) net­work.

Un­der the theme "Art, Friend­ship and Peace", the event, or­ga­nized in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Ser­vice d’aide aux Néo­cana­di­ens and Des­ti­na­tion Sher­brooke, will fea­ture the pres­ence of Mr. Paul Gingues as Honorary Pres­i­dent.

Gingues is a Sher­brooke city coun­cil­lor and chair of the Cul­ture Com­mit­tee and ac­cepted the in­vi­ta­tion, em­pha­siz­ing: "I deeply be­lieve that the arts, in all their forms, bring com­mu­ni­ties to­gether by cre­at­ing re­la­tion­ships between cit­i­zens."

On the pro­gram, Gingues will de­liver a short speech that will sig­nal the be­gin­ning of the march on the Lac-des-na­tions promenade. Then, around a cup of cof­fee, the par­tic­i­pants will be asked to con­tinue their ex­changes in a fes­tive at­mos­phere.

A blues duo com­posed of Robert Daigneault and Joël Savard will pro­vide mu­sic at the event.

The ac­tiv­ity is free and open to the pub­lic.

The Force de l'ami­tié club in the Sher­brooke re­gion is part of a world­wide net­work of more than 360 clubs in over 60 coun­tries. This walk around the Lake of Na­tions is an op­por­tu­nity to re­mem­ber the im­por­tance of friendly con­nec­tions within the com­mu­nity.
