On Monday April 9, Alberta Union of Provincial Employees (AUPE) Local 001 presented two cheques for $500 each to Falher Library / Bibliothèque Dentinger and McLennan Municipal Library.
At the presentation, McLennan Municipal Library board member, Ursula Valiquette read from a letter sent to both Falher Library manager Jocelyne Gervais and McLennan Library manager Maureen Fisher, expressing AUPE Local 001’s reasons for choosing the libraries to receive the donations.
The letter signed by Local 001 treasurer, Kathleen Buss said in part:
“Each year at our chapter annual meetings throughout Alberta, our Union Local makes a decision to support community groups with donations on behalf of our members living and working within your community.
“For 2018, our Peace River and area Chapter selected your organization to receive the $500.00 donation, in recognition of all the support you provide to your community members and allow your programs to continue…”
On hand for the presentation at McLennan Municipal Library was Shannon Nadeau representing AUPE – Jackie Hockey, Falher Library/ Bibliothèque Dentinger Board Chair – Philippa O’Mahony McLennan Library Board Chair, and Ursula Valiquette also representing McLennan Library board .
