Dear NDIP Residents,

For those fortunate enough to have been acquainted with our friend and colleague Bernard Groulx, you may be interested to know that his funeral will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 14 at the Sainte-Jeanne-de-Chantal Church. The family will receive condolences at Carrefour Notre-Dame between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. and at 1 p.m., after the ceremony. Because of Bernard’s extensive community involvement as a volunteer firefighter and municipal councillor, we expect that many people will want to honour him. The City is pleased to support his family in organizing this event. In keeping with Bernard’s wishes, Council and I took advantage of the May session to authorize a subsidy for the École François-Perrot lunch club in his name, a cause dear to his heart, to help the new generation of students now attending his former neighbourhood school.

Next week, the Marché des saveurs de l’île Perrot outdoor market kicks off its 2022 season. New this year, merchants will set up their stands one Tuesday a month in the Carrefour Notre-Dame parking lot. Since so many NDIP residents visit the Île-Perrot market each summer, we are certain this project will be a tremendous success. Of course, the markets in Parc des Générations will be back every week from May 18 to September 28 as well.

Again this summer, Council will be hosting the June, July and August sessions in our magnificent parks. The councillors and I are always delighted to have you join us outdoors in summer. Look for us on June 14 at the baseball stadium in Parc des Hirondelles, on July 12 at Parc des Éperviers and on August 9 at Parc des Mésanges. Let’s hope the weather cooperates this year!

Your mayor,
