Mount Royal parents group gathers on web for meeting

Led by current president, Sophie Séguin, the Association des Parents de Mont-Royal (APMR) will be looking for ideas and volunteer commitments when the annual general meeting by video conference is held at the end of the month.

In a message to parents and members, Séguin says the association has reached a pivotal and decisive year in their mission to serve families and will renew and redefine itself for the future.

This year will be crucial she says as the APMR will crystallize the mission taking into account the needs of members, current challenges, and relationships with the Town and others. “Many of you show an interest in the well-being of Mount Royal families and we are very grateful that you participate so actively in the discussions on our Facebook page,” she says.

This involvement can now become more concrete by volunteering for the association. She says, “We invite you to state this interest by proactively getting involved in the APMR”.

There is an opportunity to make a change says Séguin. “If you have any dissatisfaction, questions, suggestions or projects aimed at improving the community life of Mount Royal, why not join a team whose objective is the improvement of this community life?” There are still positions open on the board.

She says this is an opportunity to get involved and work with a team of committed and dynamic volunteers, who meet once or twice every three months.

“We are looking for people who represent all facets of our community — who are interested and open to working together for the common well-being,” says Séguin.

The meeting will be held by video-conference on the website Zoom, Wednesday, September 30 at 7:30 p.m. To join the meeting a password will be needed and this can be obtained from the association by email: The Board of Directors up for election for this coming term are: Maria Reit, Polina Vasherman, Samia Chebeir. Haylley Pérez Islas, Marie-Isabelle Roy, Van-Anh Le, Annie Tremblay, Chantal Goffoz, Gabriella Munro and Eve Jacob Tremblay
