gŏđŏ   Merci à nos bénévoles La semaine de l’action bénévole a eu lieu cette année du 21 au 27 avril dernier. Dans notre communauté, ce sont les bénévoles qui nourrissent ceux qui ont faim, réconfortent les personnes seules, embellissent les espaces verts et amassent des fonds destinés à soutenir les organismes de bienfaisance de notre milieu. Ce sont également ces mêmes personnes qui s’occupent des loisirs de notre jeunesse. Nos bénévoles ne comptent pas leurs heures et travaillent trop souvent dans l’ombre. Les bénévoles de notre com- munauté ne sont pas des inconnus. Il s’agit de nos parents, amis et voisins. Au nom du conseil municipal de la Cité de Clarence-Rockland et au nom des citoyens de la municipalité, j’aimerais reconnaître pub- liquement le travail de nos bénévoles et de dire à ces personnes extraordinaires un gros merci.

Memory walker on the run again

CLARENCE CREEK | Lyne Shackleton is back on the road, campaigning for ovarian cancer awareness. The Clarence Creek resident plans to get out and about later this year for her annual Walk In Memory in honour of her mother as both a fundraiser and public awareness event for ovarian cancer research. She is also helping promote the newly-declared World Ovarian Cancer Day on May 8 and which is slated to become an annual event in countries around the globe. “Canada has been a leader in the establishment of what will become an annual day dedicated to creating and raising awareness about ovarian cancer,” Shackle- ton stated. “It is the women’s cancer with the lowest survival rate, and the one for which there is little aware- ness and no cure.” Shackleton and others involved in promoting re- search into and awareness of ovarian cancer will be at a flag-raising ceremony in Ottawa 9:30 a.m. on May 8 with Mayor Jim Watson officiating. A noon reception

follows in the Councillors Lounge at City Hall on Lauri- er Avenue near Elgin Street to both mark the occasion and launch the 2013 Walk of Hope campaign. Shackleton’s hope is that next year she and other local supporters of ovarian cancer research will be able to attend a similar event in the City of Clarence- Rockland. “It was just too short notice to get more events orga- nized this year since it's the first year,” she stated, “But we're asking people to wear teal on that day (ovarian cancer color).” In mid-June Shackleton sets off on her annual two- day Walk In Memory. This year the walk begins from the Notre-Dame Basilica in Ontario and will finish at the St. Joseph Oratory in Montréal, for a total of 230 kilometres.
