100th anniversary of 68 Prince Edward Avenue
The City of Pointe-Claire is pleased to announce that an inauguration ceremony for the commemorative plaque marking the 100th anniversary of 68 Prince Edward Avenue will take place on August 15.
Valois Protestant School
To meet the needs of Valois’ growing population, a new elementary school was built at the corner of Prince Edward and Belmont. When it opened in September 1923, the Valois Protestant School welcomed a class of 16 children in Cycle 1 of elementary school.
As the population continued to grow over the years, the little red-brick school was soon unable to accommodate all the children, closing permanently its doors in 1961.
In 1991, the City of Pointe-Claire moved the Valois branch of the Pointe-Claire Public Library into the old school.
The commemorative plaque will be unveiled on Tuesday, August 15 at the Valois Branch, at 2 pm. Refreshments will be served during the event. In case of rain, the event will be postponed to the following day, at the same time.
On Wednesday, August 16, during a wine and cheese evening at 7 p.m., a video recounting the history of the building, produced by Mr. Jason Bolanis, will be shown at the Central Library.
We hope you will be able to join us!
