Centre Culturel La Ronde and Centre de santé communautaire de Timmins teamed up to host a community barbecue Monday.
The event provided an opportunity for both organizations to showcase and promote their services.
More than 30 people attended.
“We were able to launch our programs to the community and this is a great partnership to do that for the first time, so that’s really exciting,” said Lisa Prevost, community development coordinator for the francophone community health centre based at Timmins Square.
For the month of August, Centre de santé is offering a walking club that will meet at Gillies Lake every Wednesday and Friday, and a social club on Aug. 13 and Aug. 20.
The organization will also be hosting a SafeTalk training to help community members recognize people who have suicidal thoughts and connect them to help and resources. The event will take place on Aug. 27.
La Ronde took the opportunity to unveil its new programming set to launch next year.
