Saint-Étienne-des-Grès wants to capture special moments

SUMMER. The municipality of Saint-Étienne-des-Grès revealed on Monday, June 20 the programming of its activities for the summer season.

Taking place under the theme “Capturing special moments”, the municipality is planning a wide range of activities, both sporting and cultural, which begin this week and continue until the end of September.

As we know, the various culture, recreation and sports committees have had to use their imagination over the past two years to continue to offer activities to the citizens of the municipality. Many volunteers involved, working in particular with the director of recreation Ariane Bolduc-Bédard, were excited to finally return to more normal programming.

“Without their work and their involvement, it would be impossible to offer such a rich and varied program,” we added at a press conference, where several of these volunteers were present.

“We must talk about our municipality for its successes and its good deeds and not just for the difficulties and problems encountered”, supports the mayor of Saint-Étienne-des-Grès, Nancy Mignault.

National Day – Friday June 24 from 5 p.m.

Families are invited to the Parc des Grès to enjoy family activities such as inflatable structures, local tales, the unveiling of the flag contest, the raising of the flag, the patriotic speech, a musical show by the La Déferlance group and the traditional fireworks and bonfire.
