Laurentian Bank Takes Part in the First Tree Day

MONTREAL, Sept. 21, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is pleased to be organizing a special activity in conjunction with the very first presentation of National Tree Day. The event is taking place on September 21 — the first day of fall.

Under the banner of the Agence métropolitaine de transport's In Town Without My Car for a Whole Week! event, of which Laurentian Bank is serving as the official presenter once again this year, rosebush (Rosa Palustris) shoots will be distributed in Philips Square, the site where most of the week's activities are to be held. From Monday, September 19 to Thursday, September 22, Bank personnel will be on hand at noontime handing out some 2,500 shoots to passersby.

"Laurentian Bank is delighted to be underlining the importance of trees during this first edition of Tree Day, emphasized Gladys Caron, the Bank's Vice-President of Public Affairs, Communications and Investor Relations. ""We are always seeking ways to diminish the impact of our operations on the environment — by substantially reducing our paper consumption, for example — and we are proud to be contributing to beautifying our urban environment through this particular initiative."
