AN OKTOBERFEST IN THE HEART OF BROME-MISSISQUOI

Last Saturday was the third edition of the Oktoberfest BMP. The event was sold out with over 450 participants gathered to celebrate an authentic Oktoberfest in the heart of Brome-Missisquoi. Thanks to them and the support of generous partners, this fundraising event raised $42,000. The third edition of the Oktoberfest BMP was held under the honorary co-presidency of Dr. Nathalie Bruneau, Orthopedist at the BMP Hospital and Mr. Simon Campagna, pharmacist-owner of the Brunet pharmacy in Bromont.

A new Orthopedic Clinic

This money will be fully invested in the redevelopment project of the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital Orthopedic Clinic. Currently in the basement, it will be relocated to the ground floor in a larger space. The new Clinic will offer more privacy to its patients and easy access to complementary services such as radiography. A project that is close to the heart of its spokesperson: Maxence Parrot. This well-known resident of Bromont has used this service many times for various injuries. Fortunately, it was without a hitch that he recently distinguished himself for his snowboarding exploits at the PyongChang Olympic Winter Games by returning home with a silver medal. Being on the road last weekend, he wanted to participate in the event by donating a snowboard that was never seen before on the market for our auction, which was held during the evening. A huge thank you!
