Message of recognition from Parc Jean Drapeau for the work done for La Fête des Neiges :

À vous et vos équipes,

Je tenais à vous transmettre toutes mes félicitations et mes remerciements sincères pour la qualité du site que vous avez produit pour la tenue de la Fête des neiges.

Le lancement de presse, hier soir, a permis à tous nos invités de constater à quel point vous avez réussi à réinventer de façon extraordinaire ce lieu événementiel. Les nombreux commentaires, dont ceux du Maire et de notre conseil d’administration, sont tous positifs et je me joins à eux pour vous dire bravo!

Cette réalisation est certainement le fruit d’un travail d’équipe. Je sais que pour arriver à ces résultats, il aura fallu un travail soutenu de tout le monde, de toutes les directions, dans un contexte hivernal. Vous êtes trop nombreux pour vous énumérer mais sachez qu’individuellement, vous avez toute notre reconnaissance et que je ne manquerai pas de la saluer lors de mes visites. Grâce à vous, des familles et leurs touts petits, des plus grands, des touristes, bref les citoyens pourront profiter de moments extraordinaires dans notre magnifique ville. N’oublions jamais que c’est pour eux que nous travaillons si forts, pour leurs sourires et satisfaction. Je vous remercie d’avance de la qualité constante de votre service à la clientèle.

Le parc Jean-Drapeau se transforme significativement et positivement et vous nous prouvez encore une fois que vous êtes les artisans essentiels à notre réussite collective.

Bonne Fête des neiges et au plaisir de vous recroiser sur le site!
