On November 16, the Lorraine municipal council paid tribute to three citizens who distinguished themselves in sports in 2020. As gatherings are still prohibited by the Public Health Department, Mayor Jean Comtois and municipal councilors went directly to the recipients to give them their scholarship. In total, $ 1,250 was distributed in support of these young enthusiasts.
The scholarship recipients are: Gabrielle Deslauriers (gymnastics), Laurie-Ann Desormes (athletics) and Édouard Theriault (freestyle skiing – slopestyle).
“The fact that we only received three scholarship applications for 2020 shows how difficult it has been for the fields of sport and culture. I want to congratulate our three recipients, and I invite the athletes, musicians, chess players and others to stay positive. We hope that activities can resume normally as soon as possible so that you can live your passion again. Rest assured that the City will be there and that it will continue to support you,” promised Mayor Jean Comtois.
Any scholarship application must be sent to Recreation and culture between January 1st and October 31st of the current year.
