MONTREAL, June 3 /CNW Telbec/ - Laurentian Bank is proud to be renewing
its association with the South Shore Regional Soccer Association (SSRSA) for
the fifth consecutive year as principal sponsor. Officially launched today,
this year's soccer season will culminate September 19-20 with the presentation
of the Laurentian Bank Cup.
"The Bank and its employees are delighted to be contributing to the
promotion of a game like soccer that is so readily accessible to families and
is constantly growing in popularity," underlined Lucie Méthot, Assistant
Vice-President, Montréal South Shore Regional Market. "At Laurentian Bank, we
firmly believe that it is very important to encourage children to play sports
in order to enable them to be physically fit while learning the rules of the
various games and developing team spirit."
Each year, on the South Shore like elsewhere in Québec, a large number of
Laurentian Bank employees serve as volunteers and get involved with different
soccer organizations. This partnership with the SSRSA is perfectly aligned
with the family orientation adopted by the Bank and its dedication to being
part of the life of the communities in which it operates.
