Loisir Sport Outaouais (LSO) hosted a get-together at Pine Lodge on November 6 as part of their regional tour to celebrate 25 years of accomplishments in the field of sports, leisure, and outdoor activities in the region.
Director General Julie DeCourval welcomed participants, many of whom are partners in projects that have been, or will be, realized in the Pontiac. Michel Parenteau, LSO board president, underlined LSO’s partnerships with municipalities, community groups and schools. MRC Pro-Warden Sandra Armstrong congratulated and thanked the LSO on behalf of the MRC.
LSO has helped with such projects as the design and development of the municipal park in Campbell’s Bay and providing games and musical instruments for the Maison des Jeunes there. Help was also provided to the Norway Bay Municipal Association for the improvement of the tennis courts. A pump track, a looped sequence of rollers and berms with swoopy, banked turns for bike riders is scheduled for opening in Fort-Coulonge in the summer 2024.
