New cottage at Murray Bay in 2024

DAY

 

I had the pleasure of accompanying the visit of La Malbaie, on September 7, for a round of golf on the Royal course of the Royal Quebec golf club in Boischatel. These four hours, in very good company, allowed me to spend a very pleasant day and also to learn that the Murray Bay Golf Club will have, from 2024, a main chalet completely renovated and enhanced. New foundations, the repair of existing annexes (restaurant and bar) as well as the addition of new ones and insulation work on the current building, built in 1906, will be carried out over the next few months. The locker rooms, the boutique and the administrative offices will be found in the basement, among others. Cost of work? Between $3 and $4 million.

New Réno-Jouets store

< p>

The official opening night of Réno-Jouets took place on September 9, in the former premises of the Canac store in Cap-Rouge, with several partners who participated in the realization of this project. Although the store has been open to the public since last June, more than 150 people were present to celebrate the new premises of this non-profit organization, which has collected, recycled and redistributed toys every year since 2002. During the weekend, Réno-Jouets held a fair in the parking lot of the building to allow young families to celebrate the opening and the start of the school year. The profits made during this weekend went directly to the Réno-Jouets Foundation. In the photo, from left to right: Richard Coulombe, president of the Réno-Jouets Foundation; Marie-Claude Arseneault-Dubé, President of the Board of Réno-Jouets; Annie Asselin, general manager and founder of Réno-Jouets; and the Charitable mascot of Réno-Jouets.   

Mobilis Foundation

The 35th annual golf tournament of the Mobilis Corporation, presented last September 8 at the Lorette Club for the benefit of the Mobilis Foundation, brought together automobile and heavy truck dealers who are members of the Corporation as well as several industry partners. The activity, which remains one of the Foundation's major fundraising activities, like the Avant-Première Benefit Evening of the Quebec International Auto Show, raised $65,000. 

In remembrance

September 15, 1987. Canada wins arguably the best series hockey has ever played as they rally to defeat the Soviet Union 6-5 in Game 3 of the Canada Cup Final in Hamilton. Mario Lemieux scores the winning goal on a pass from Wayne Gretzky (pictured) with 1:26 to go for the win.
