Laurentian Bank to Partner with La Fête nationale du Québec in Montréal
MONTREAL, June 11, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is extremely proud to
be serving as a partner and principal collaborator in Montréal's Fête
nationale du Québec festivities this coming June 24. Through its financial
participation, the Bank will contribute to the presentation of activities in
the city under the theme, Le Québec en nous, d'hier à demain.
"As the third oldest enterprise in Montréal that has been at the service of
the Québec population for 167 years, it is perfectly natural for Laurentian
Bank to be associated with this event," underlines Gladys Caron,
Vice-President of Public Affairs, Communications and Investor Relations. "We
are delighted indeed to be celebrating our collective belonging to Québec
society in this special way!"
Laurentian Bank will be at the very heart of the festivities throughout the
course of the day and will be actively involved in all of the activities —
from the colourful parade, to the spectacular show. The Bank's Little Heroes
Club will also be on hand from 1:00 p.m. to early evening in the family area
at Parc Maisonneuve. In addition, the Bank will be helping to illuminate the
big show at night and make the ambiance even more festive by distributing
glowing neckbands. The blowout show will feature the likes of Marie-Mai, Diane
Dufresne, Pierre Lapointe, Raôul Duguay, Richard Séguin, Samian, Koriass,
Manu Militari, le collectif hommage aux Colocs and Ano Dajay, while Guy A.
Lepage and the Porn Flakes will run the happening.
Pleased to be helping perpetuate the great tradition of June 24 festivities,
Laurentian Bank is inviting all Montréalers and residents of surrounding
areas to come celebrate La Fête nationale du Québec in Montréal. More
