Gala Reconnaissance 2009 highlights contributions made by several personalities in the business world

    MONTREAL, Feb. 3 /CNW Telbec/ - The Hotel and Restaurant Suppliers
Association Inc. (HRSA) will, once again this year, hold its Gala
Reconnaissance event. With approximately 400 representatives of hotels,
restaurants, institutions and their partner organizations in attendance, the
Gala represents a unique opportunity for the HRSA to thank certain figures in
the business community and the HRI industry for, and place the spotlight on,
their contributions to our society's economic development as well as their
participation in the growth of the hospitality sector.
    During the Gala, each award recipient selected by the HRSA will receive a
Pilgrim Stick - a collector's item, personalized specifically for him/her,
designed by Roch Lefebvre, a craftsman and creator from Quebec's Bois-Francs
region. Among other benefits, the Pilgrim Stick recipients are drawn into a
circle of affinity comprised of other faithful companions who are a source of
support and pride. The award - a memento that the recipient can look to at the
various high points of his/her life, is also a symbol of courage and physical
and moral support.
