(Montreal – July 12) – Saturday, July 7, was a red-letter day for the Don Bosco Youth Leadership Centre in Montreal.

 

The city of Montreal decided to rename the most important park near us as Parc Don Bosco and to plant a “Don Bosco” tree to honor him. The mayor of our borough and the provincial and federal members of Parliament were all present for the event. The mayor presented a beautiful tribute to Don Bosco, priest and educator.

All levels of government were most grateful and very proud of all the good carried out by the DBYLC.

Summer campers, animators, parents, and friends of our youth center enjoyed a lively family day of activities.

“We are more appreciated than we expected” was a thought shared by many.
