BOUCHERVILLE, QC, April 7 /CNW Telbec/ - At the moment he received the highest recognition in Canada's honors system, Daniel Germain, president and founder of Breakfast Clubs of Canada, immediately thought of the thousands of people, the partners and volunteers, who work behind the scenes and make up the heart and soul of Breakfast Clubs of Canada.
"This honor doesn't belong to me alone," says Daniel Germain. "It's the result of the work done by everyone who has put their confidence in me and who has made the decision to take part in this important project, completely devoted to the well-being of our children. From the beginning, I've been surrounded by compassionate people, ready to put words into action. And together, we have worked tirelessly to make sure that all children get an equal chance at success in school. This award is the crowning achievement of our efforts and the recognition of our work so far. And even if sometimes the scale of what we still want to accomplish seems huge, every time I wear this prestigious insignia, I'll know that we've done a really good job and that we continue to head in the right direction."
The Order of Canada recognizes a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. The honor acknowledges the entire work of Daniel and the family of people who make up Breakfast Clubs of Canada.
