La Troupe du Monument, singer Alfred Landry of the group La Wing à ehin, as well as three volunteers from the Memramcook Cultural Society, very involved in the artistic life of the Valley, were awarded the Éloi Prize.

As a new feature this year, those responsible for the Prix Éloi have decided to highlight cultural builders of the Memramcook Valley, in addition to saluting the work of artists.

Thérèse Melanson-Albert, Odette LeBlanc and Raymond Gaudet were honored for their hard work within the Memramcook Cultural Society. They wanted to thank them as volunteers.

“Cultural society wanted to highlight not only artists, but also those behind the scenes, those who allow artists to perform. And Odette LeBlanc, Thérèse Mélenson-Albert and Raymond Gaudet, these are three people who formed like a trio of volunteers who were very involved in the cultural society, but also in several other associations in Memramcook. And thanks to them, to their united strength, many projects have been implemented. And in particular the Éloi Prize began with them,” explained Marie Bordet, communications manager at the Memramcook Cultural Society.

The Éloi prizes were awarded during a celebration on Sunday at the Monument-Lefebvre theater, hosted by Jason Ouellette in front of 150 people from the community, the families of the recipients, people from the village, elected officials and all the volunteers of the Memramcook Cultural Society.

Singer Alfred Landry of the well-known country-flavored band La Wing à eh received his award with emotion.

“They are a popular group in the region and they have hosted a lot of parties in the region. He is very appreciated in the Memramcook community,” mentioned Marie Bordet.

The Troupe du Monument, which has nearly 15 actors and technicians, occupies an important place in Memramcook. She was praised for the quality of her theatrical performances.

Violinist Eddie Poirier, as well as musicians Joanne-Lise Belliveau and Stéphanie Boudreau performed songs related to the Petitcodiac River, reported Marie Bordet.

“It was really very moving, which helped create a feeling of belonging to this community. We were all together in this magnificent theater in Mermamcook. And it really created a very warm and very moving atmosphere.”

She praised the contribution of volunteers, including that of Eugène LeBlanc, to the organization of the event.
