The CLSC in Quyon has been the fortunate recipient of the community’s hard work in fundraising, affording their doctor a new examination table after waiting years for a replacement.
At a celebration of the new addition at the CLSC on July 25, Dr. Ruth Vander Stelt thanked the donors, including the Quyon Lionettes, Lions, CLSC Foundation and Pontiac MNA André Fortin, for their generosity.
“It’s a symbolic thing, it’s not so much how much money was spent on the table,” said Dr. Vander Stelt. “You’ve got the Lions, the Lionettes, you’ve got the MNA and then you’ve got the [CLSC] Foundation, so it’s a communal effort and that’s symbolic for the CLSC.”
