A tributes to the volunteers : A brunch to celebrate and say thank you!

The National Bank Canadian Junior Internationals taking place in Repentigny would not be the wonderful tournament it has been since its creation in 1986 without its volunteers. The next generation is very present, but we still can count on the invaluable help of the volunteers who have been involved since its inception. To celebrate the 35th edition, it was important to pay tribute to them and say thank you. A brunch was therefore organized at the Centre de formation professionnelle (CFP) des Riverains, on Sunday July 10th.

More than 120 volunteers were reunited. Moreover, we were able to see how much fun people were having reuniting for this activity specially prepared for them. During the meal, Repentigny mayor, Nicolas Dufour, tournament president Benoit Delisle and its founding father René Gauthier paid tribute to the volunteers who have greatly contributed to the reputation of this tournament over the years.
