donated well over 100 pieces to local parents. “We use wedding dresses, prom dresses, flower girl dresses and even baptismal dresses,” said Leduc. “We make prince and princess gowns for the tiny angels that are takenmuch too soon. We want their parents to receive them in a respectable way. We don’t want them seeing them in a box. “We make them to honor the lives that could’ve been,” added Brown. The group of 15 volunteers takes donated dresses and, after washing and pressing them, dismantles them into little pieces, which in turn are sewn, sometimes, into colorful suits. “We tend to keep the black for little tuxedos, for the boys,” declared Leduc. “We get wedding dresses that are often loved. Then in turn, we create those little gowns.

Nothing can tear a family apart like the lost of a child before birth. One local woman, who spearheaded Angel Gowns of Cornwall and Area, knows full well the pain it brings. “I’ve had nine miscarriages,” explained Penny Brown, as she sat at a table surround- ed by supporters of her case. She holds to her face an extremely small but well-crafted dress. “Doing these angel dresses has been my way of coping. It helps me heal and it’s a worthwhile cause.” Together, with hardworking volunteers such as Denise Leduc, the organization, which was established two years ago, has

In a way, the little infant is hugged by love.” At her kitchen table, Leduc opens a big box, revealing several pieces of dress, cut into perfect sizes. “ We have a volunteer in her seventies that helps us take apart the dresses,” informed

the woman. “She simply loves it. It gives her something to do and she feels that it’s very rewarding. She’s also very good at it.” Leduc then holds a bag full of buttons. “She’s very efficient,” added Brown, as the four women around the table laugh.

“She’s amazing and we love having her on the team!” On average, a donated dress will create about five outfits. “We have to have several sizes,” specified Leduc. “They are measured in pounds,” contin- ued Brown. In addition, the group will often embel- lish pieces. One of the volunteer holds up a gorgeous blue outfit. On it is a sort of glitter, making it sparkle in the whole room. “We used parts of two wedding dresses for this one,” she said. Brown also recalls that one time, the

group received a fire engine red promdress. “It was fromBejiing,” she indicated. “It also had leopard prints on it.” The volunteers worked diligently and managed to make a number of outfits with the red, all the while keeping the leopard print for little bowties, to go along with little tuxedos. “We work with anything we get,” pointed out Leduc. Bring comfort to the local population In order to bring warmth to parents who just lost an unborn child, the organization brings several pieces to local hospitals, such as in Cornwall, Brockville and Winchester.

“I just got off the phone with theWinchester hospital,” Brown confided. “I have to bring them some more.” One of the volunteers at the table, herself a doctor, explained: “It’s as if children dying during pregnancy is a stigma, as if it’s taboo. People don’t like to talk about it toomuch.” In order to fight the stigma, Brown suc- cessfully convinced the City of Cornwall to proclaim October 15 as the Pregnancy and Infancy Loss Day. In addition, the organization held a remembrance service at the Cornwall Cenotaph. In honor of the event, the lights

in the fountain were blue and pink. “A lot of people participated in the event,” declared Brown. She hopes to organize the event once more this year. “I want it to go on every year!” The group is always looking for volunteers to help them in their quest. “We’re always looking for anyone willing to help,” said Leduc. “It doesn’t evenmatter if you know how to sew or not, we’ll teach you!” Interested individuals can email Brown at peanutbrown77@hotmail.com

Les élèves de l’École secondaire catholique La Citadelle ainsi que les élèves de l’École secondaire publique L’Héritage ont tous eu droit à plusieurs activités, lors de la journée de la Saint-Valentin le 14 février dernier. Rappelons que les origines de la fête se situeraient dans la Rome antique. En effet, plusieurs historiens croient que le choix de cette date est associé aux Lupercales romaines, fêtes annuelles célébrées en l’honneur de Lupercus. Pendant ces festivités, des noms de garçons et filles étaient tirés au hasard, dans le but de former des couples qui resteraient ensemble tout au long de l’année. C’est en 496 que le pape décida d’abolir les Lupercales et d’honorer la mémoire de Saint Valentin, en le déclarant patron des amoureux. Il aurait donc choisi le 14 février comme la journée qui deviendrait enfin la Saint Valentin. Plusieurs des élèves de l’École secondaire catholique La Citadelle étaient élégamment vêtus afin de prendre part à la Saint Valentin, le 14 février dernier. — photo fournies



Dans le cadre de la Saint-Valentin à l’École secondaire publique L’Héritage, Gabriel Valin a animé le micro de l’amour lors du dîner, en demandant aux élèves dans la cafétéria ce qu’ils aimaient ou qui ils chérissaient.
