    Click for detail --> Mr. Kevin Rivette - Erection of Lawn Sign - SDG Highlanders

    Mr. Rivette stood before Members of Council to share his passion and powerful words of Project Goodbye Adieu Living the Power of a Dream, a joint collaborative and community effort recorded produced and backed by local people, translated by a local French Canadian lyricist and sung by himself with a simple goal in mind to raise funds and community awareness for the needs of offering better cancer services and treatments right here in Cornwall while assisting troops and their families serving in Afghanistan. This venture is about sharing in the vision to allow cancer victims in our community to obtain treatments locally without the inconvenience of having to travel out of town (Ottawa/Winchester).

    The project, the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation and Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation will see the net proceeds from the sale of these CDs and its fund raising activities see 50% go directly back to our Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation for people of our community, 25% to regional hospital initiative efforts and according to the mandate of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation with which Project Goodbye/Adieu collaborates, that of the vision of survivorship , research and development thereby enabling these agencies to raise funds and share success stories. In conclusion, Mr. Rivette presented a banner to Mayor Kilger in hopes of sharing the impact with Council and members of our City. Mr. Rivette further asked that this banner be displayed in front of City Hall and that the City proudly affix a red ribbon of support on municipal police, fire, ambulance and community recreational facilities and call upon all business people to do the same in their businesses and proudly tell the world that Cornwall does support its troops and extends them our support. Supporting the vision to help these military families cope with difficult financial struggles and lift the financial burden from their children related to their post secondary education, is a small price to pay, but generates such a big impact.

    In conclusion, the song promoted on the CD of Goodbye/Adieu played.
