Approximately 30 people were in attendance for the Patro’s annual general meeting (AGM) on Wednesday, August 26. During the meeting, the organization presented it’s annual Activity and Financial report, in which the impacts of the 2019 floods were notably highlighted.

According to the president of the board of Directors, Gélineault Dionne, even though the organization saw major damages to its buildings they was able to receive a 75% return on its insurance, which allowed for the repairs of site. Though most of the repairs to the buildings at the Patro in Fort-Coulonge have been completed, work will continue through the fall of 2020.

The new director general, Suzanne Dazé, who recently took over for Frère Marc Frappier, commented on the state of the Patro, which faced the major floods in 2019 and now the COVID-19 Pandemic. She added that despite the struggles of the previous year, the Patro intends to recover its deficit by reaching out more to the community.

For 2019, the Patro was forced to cancel major portions of its revenue stream, operating at limited capacity for its day camp and tourism attractions as reported in the 2019-20 annual financial report, running a deficit for 2020 of $76,543.

More details on the Patro’s annual general meeting will be available soon.
