Local Flavours Rendez-Vous


Local Flavours Rendez-Vous - October 21, 2017

THE SECOND EDITION OF THE RUSSELL TOWNSHIP’S LOCAL FLAVOURS RENDEZ-VOUS WAS ONCE AGAIN A GREAT SUCCESS

Embrun, Ontario - Monday, November 6, 2017, at the Council meeting, the amount donated to Victoria's Quilts Canada was revealed following the Local Flavours Rendez-Vous.

The event organized by the Economic Development Department took place on October 21, 2017, at the Embrun Community Centre. The 22 booths had the chance to introduce their products to more than 600 attendees during the event.

The Local Flavours Rendez-Vous is also a fundraiser for a local association. This year Victoria's Quilts Canada received $ 7,546 from the Township of Russell and another $ 5,000 from Scotiabank with their Community Involvement Program. This non-profit organization provides free handmade quilts to people suffering from cancer across Canada.

“We would like to thank all the volunteers, employees and sponsors who helped us organize the Local Flavours Rendez-Vous. Without your support, the event would not have been so successful.” Shared Dominique Tremblay, Director of Planning, Building and Economic Development.

For next year's event, the local association that will receive the funds raised will be selected from community member submissions. The selection criteria will be developed in the coming months and a selection committee will be created to select the association for the event. Keep an eye on the Townships social media and website for the application period in early 2018.
