Reconnaissance de lesprit communautaire et du civisme

first_imgLe Prix du lieutenant-gouverneur pour l’esprit communautaire est décerné à deux collectivités néo-écossaises reconnues pour leur civisme et leur esprit communautaire exemplaires. Ce prix célèbre l’énergie, la force et la diversité des dynamiques collectivités de la province. Jusqu’à quatre collectivités sont honorées chaque année. Un comité de sélection étudie les demandes en fonction des critères établis pour l’obtention du prix et choisit les collectivités qui y répondent le mieux. En avril, nous avons demandé aux Néo-Écossais de nous faire part d’histoires d’engagement communautaire et de service extraordinaire. Les deux collectivités reconnues cette année sont celles de Big Tancook, dans le comté de Lunenburget de Pubnico-Ouest, dans le comté de Yarmouth. « Le Prix du lieutenant-gouverneur pour l’esprit communautaire est l’une des façons pour la Couronne en Nouvelle-Écosse de reconnaître et de remercier les gens qui se dépensent sans compter afin de faire de leur collectivité un endroit spécial où vivre, a déclaré le lieutenant-gouverneur, Arthur LeBlanc. J’ai vraiment hâte de me rendre prochainement sur l’île Big Tancook et à Pubnico-Ouest pour présenter les trophées. » Hillary Dionne de la Big Tancook Island Community Association a présenté la demande en collaboration avec plusieurs autres organismes communautaires. Elle a parlé d’une petite collectivité insulaire pleine de ressources qui est très fière de son histoire et qui travaille toujours ensemble. « L’histoire et le patrimoine culturel sont omniprésents ici sur l’île Big Tancook, et les gens qui vivent ici sont solides et ils ont beaucoup d’initiative, a dit Mme Dionne. Nous vivons dans un endroit unique qui nous demande souvent de faire les choses un peu différemment. Notre mode de vie favorise une approche créatrice pour presque tout ce que nous faisons. Ensemble, nous sommes motivés et capables et nous travaillons toujours dans l’intérêt supérieur de notre collectivité. » Avec l’aide de divers groupes communautaires, Charlene LeBlanc a présenté la candidature du petit village de pêche de Pubnico-Ouest dont elle a souligné le patrimoine acadien toujours vivant, la forte participation citoyenne et le flair pour l’innovation. « Il n’y a absolument rien que la collectivité de Pubnico-Ouest ne peut pas faire, a déclaré Mme LeBlanc. Tout ce que nous faisons, nous le faisons extrêmement bien et cela se voit dans notre travail, nos divertissements et notre engagement bénévole. Les résidents de Pubnico-Ouest ont tous participé à la création de cette formidable collectivité à laquelle ils sont fiers d’appartenir. Les collectivités choisies pour recevoir le Prix du lieutenant-gouverneur pour l’esprit communautaire seront honorées lors de célébrations communautaires qui auront lieu prochainement. Le lieutenant-gouverneur, Arthur LeBlanc, assistera aux festivités pour remettre à chaque collectivité une œuvre originale de NovaScotian Crystal sur laquelle sera gravée une illustration de l’histoire de la collectivité.
