Golf Day for Literacy '99
Given the recognized success of our Golf Days for Literacy, we are doing nothing to ruin a perfect record. Dennis Trudeau and our good friends at CBC continue to be our loyal partners, as they have been for the past six years. We can never thank them enough for their support and for the colour they add to the day.
The perfection of Cedarbrook Golf Club has lured us back again this year, and we look forward to a marvelous day just like the previous ones at Cedarbrooke. We hope you will join us.
Golf Day '98 Grants
Congratulations to this year's recipients:
These groups join the growing list of LPQ members who benefit directly from our Golf Day for Literacy each year.
LPQ Attends Heritage Canada Hearings
Although most participants represented the cultural industries, they were interested and receptive to the notion that literacy is closely linked to their work.
Members of Parliament who were in attendance were particularly responsive to LPQ's presentation and to the reality that literacy skills are fundamental to enabling individuals to participate in every aspect of society and culture.
Local Family Literacy Day Events
To help promote the day in Quebec, LPQ distributed promotional materials and notified at least 20 mayors in the Montreal area. The Cities of Beaconsfield and Verdun were very positive and officially declared that day Family Literacy Day. The City of Dorval also showed great interest.
"Penny's Odyssey" aired on local CTV networks in most provinces, and the entire project was an excellent way of raising awareness for Family Literacy.
Local Literacy Worker Honoured
One of this year's winners was Lisa Lucas, Director of Action ABC, a literacy program for people recovering from substance abuse.
Lisa was recognized for her efforts in facilitating a program in Family Literacy which encourages her clients to expand literacy in their home lives and to prompt their children to share in their own newly-acquired literacy skills.
