LimogesShirley Racine, a local volunteer who helped spearhead the Limoges Health Hub project, has received the Canada 150 Sesquicentennial Award. Racine was one of 14 recipients selected from Glengarry-Prescott-Russell.

“I am glad that we were able to recognize the amazing work accomplished by these individuals (as) they truly
make our community a better place. ” said Francis Drouin, Member of Parliament for the Glengarry-Prescott-Russell region that includes the Village of Limoges.

Each Canada 150 pin is made from the copper of the roof of the Parliament of Canada in Ottawa. Every Member of Parliament received special Canada 150 pins to recognize outstanding community members. Mr. Drouin awarded pins “to community members who have demonstrated a high level of individual excellence or achievement benefiting
the people of Glengarry-Prescott-Russell.”

Said Racine back in 2015, “establishing health services in Limoges and surrounding areas will create a solid base for future economic development, but first of all will ensure the well-being of our residents by offering preventative health strategies for our residents.”

The Limoges Health Hub officially opened in October 2017.
