On April 25, Les Ami(e)s du Cycloparc PPJ held a working meeting at the Carrefour jeunesse-emploi office in Campbell's Bay, bringing out about a dozen people.
Remo Pasteris, the president of the Green PPJ Verte, opened the meeting and explained the difference between the two organizations. The Green PPJ Verte is a group that was set up to protect the cycling path from motorized vehicles as well as helping to identify areas requiring maintenance. Les Ami(e)s du Cycloparc PPJ was an organization started by Tiziana Fortin-Rompelberg last year in order to promote the route and cycling in general with various events.
Pasteris explained that over the last summer, Rompelberg put in a Herculean effort in order to put on the events she did, and if the events are to continue in the future, she will require more help. The working session was a chance to look ahead to the summer and plan strategy.
Co-founder of the Green PPJ Verte, Lynne Lavery, introduced the first guest of the evening, MRC Pontiac Tourism Marketing Officer Jérémi Vaillancourt.
“You're the first one from the MRC that's attended a meeting,” she said.
