Mr. Speaker, this morning, I had the honour of attending the ceremony where Monique Venne from Mont-Laurier was awarded the Sovereign's Medal for Volunteers.

Since it is National Volunteer Week, I would like to sincerely thank her for the 25 years that she has spent helping people in need through the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul.

That is why I would also like to recognize the inspiring attitude of many other volunteers who were recently awarded the Quebec Lieutenant Governor's medal at a ceremony that I attended on Saturday in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts.

I would like to congratulate and thank Mathieu Desmarais, Mélissa Campeau, Vincent Mailloux, Alexandre Milette-Gagnon, Robert Ardoin, Ernest Boyer, Denise Comtois-Lalongé, Francine Doré-Paquette, Micheline Drainville, Jacqueline Dumas, Huguette Dumay, Monique Guénette, Rose-Amande Houle, Claire Lalonde, and Yolande Véronneau.

Our communities would not be the same without volunteers like Ms. Venne and the commitment of these other leaders in our region. Keep up the good work.

Monsieur le Président, j'ai eu l'honneur, ce matin, d'assister à la remise de la Médaille du souverain pour les bénévoles à Mme Monique Venne, citoyenne de Mont-Laurier.

Dans le cadre de la semaine de l'action bénévole, j'aimerais la remercier sincèrement des 25 années qu'elle a passées à aider les plus démunis à la Société Saint-Vincent de Paul.

C'est pourquoi je souligne aussi l'attitude inspirante de plusieurs autres bénévoles qui ont récemment reçu la Médaille du Lieutenant-gouverneur du Québec à Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, une cérémonie à laquelle j'ai participé ce samedi.

Je félicite et remercie Mathieu Desmarais, Mélissa Campeau, Vincent Mailloux, Alexandre Milette-Gagnon, Robert Ardoin, Ernest Boyer, Denise Comtois-Lalongé, Francine Doré-Paquette, Micheline Drainville, Jacqueline Dumas, Huguette Dumay, Monique Guénette, Rose-Amande Houle, Claire Lalonde et Yolande Véronneau.

Nos communautés ne seraient pas les mêmes sans les bénévoles comme Mme Venne et l'engagement de ces autres leaders dans notre région. Ne lâchez pas.
