Golf Day for Literacy 99 a Success Even in the Rain
For the first time in the history of our Golf Days for Literacy, the weather did not co-operate on Tuesday, June 1, 1999. Despite all attempts to will the clouds away, they persisted and it rained intermittently until mid afternoon.
But the ending is a happy one. Having now experienced every golf tournament organizers greatest dread, we know that even rain cannot dampen the spirits of our golfers, guests and most of all, our friend and host, Dennis Trudeau.
Cedarbrook (now part of Club Link) looked lovely even in the summer rain and our 88 golfers did not seem to mind the weather. With nobody bothered by the lack of sun, the day went on flawlessly and ended on a warm, positive note as Dennis presided over hors doeuves, dinner and prizes.
We cannot thank Dennis Trudeau and CBC enough for their role in our event. Dennis was largely responsible for the good time had by all, as he made everyone feel welcome and eager to enjoy the golf, the contests, the silent auction and the dinner. With so many of our golfers being regulars by now, there is definitely a very special family atmosphere when we all come together each year.
Although a final accounting has not yet been completed, initial calculations indicate a significant increase in profits. We estimate this years net return to be approximately $11,000.00, all of which will be returned to projects in the literacy community. This year our focus is on adults with learning disabilities.
Plan to be with us at Cedarbrook next year for the 8th Annual Golf Day for Literacy on Monday May 29, 2000. Rain or shine, we know it will be a great day.
LPQ Has Moved
After more than seven years of residing at our first home in an office at The Centre for Literacy at Dawson College, LPQ has now moved to the Fraser-Hickson Library.
The move comes as a result of LPQs growth and our need for more space. The past two years have marked a number of new directions and great change for LPQ, and we have literally outgrown our original office.
While this is a very positive impetus to move, we also recall our very happy history in our original space at The Centre.
It was due to the graciousness of The Centre for Literacy that we were given not only the office space, but also the opportunity to begin our growth. We wish to express our sincere thanks to them and to Dawson College for this opportunity. Without them, we would not have been able to reach this new stage in our history as a vital and important member of the literacy community.
We leave our original home with many, many good memories and look forward to the future with great anticipation. As of mid June LPQ will be located at the Fraser-Hickson Library at 4855 Kensington Avenue in Montreal where we anticipate continued growth and success. This is a very exciting time for everyone at LPQ.
Once again we would like to thank The Centre for Literacy and Dawson College for their kind hospitality, and we look forward to a maintaining our ties with all of our friends there.
We look forward also, to continuing to serve our members and the literacy community from our home at The Fraser-Hickson Library.
