Dignitaries at the sod-turning ceremony for the extension to Dollard-des-Ormeaux School in Valcartier (Shannon) are: Major Christian Martin, coordinator CFB Valcartier; Eric Claire, MNA for La Peltrie; Stéphane Lagacé, principal of DDO; Stephen Burke, chairman of the Board of Commissioners of the Central Québec School Board (holding ceremonial shovel); and Stephen Pigeon, director general of the CQSB.

Last Friday’s grey, wet morning in Shannon did not keep dignitaries and guests away from the sod-turning ceremony for the extension to Dollard-des-Ormeaux School. Enthusiastic guests plodded through mud and sand to the construction site.
