LAURENTIAN BANK BACK ON THE PITCH WITH THE SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL SOCCER ASSOCIATION

MONTREAL, June 9, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - For the seventh consecutive year, Laurentian Bank is pleased to be associated in the role of principal sponsor with the South Shore Regional Soccer Association (SSRSA). Over the years, the Bank is particularly concerned with the development of young people. Its involvement with young families and their children who play soccer is part of its commitment to supporting organizations within the communities in which it operates.

"This year in Québec, more than 75 000 young soccer players will benefit from Laurentian Bank's support through associations and local clubs, underlined Guilherme Mendes, Director of Charles-Lemoyne Branch. Our institution is very pleased to be offering its support in the South Shore and to be encouraging the participation of young people in this soccer league." The SSRSA's 2011 season will culminate with the Laurentian Bank Cup series for the regional A league, which will be held in Sainte-Julie next September 17-18.

Increasingly popular in the province, the sport of soccer is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Indeed, this tremendous interest in soccer within Québec is part of a universal trend because it happens to be the most played sport in the world. Laurentian Bank is proud to be actively participating in this movement and to be encouraging a unifying sport that promotes both teamwork and team spirit. Also, a large number of Bank employees also serve as volunteers with the young people on the field throughout the season.
