Victor Mesher praised for Montreal feasts
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Mr. Victor Mesher, who for many years has made life more enjoyable for the Inuit community here in Montreal.
Victor has made it possible, by his great spirit and generosity to help us in getting together every month to enjoy country food, good music, good company, good old-fashioned Inuit games, great prizes and many many more activities. Families, children, old friends, new friends, strangers, the homeless, the working class and everyone else would come to this event in Lachine and sometimes in Dorval to celebrate each other and to feel the warmth of being together in the big city.
My children as well as many other children loved this event and would look forward to it with excitement, knowing that they would see their friends on this special night. So on that note I would like to say thank you once again to a very special individual who had the time and patience to bring all of us together through his hard work and determination in bringing the Inuit community together.
I would also like to express the great sadness I felt when I heard that May 28 would be the last event. This is a very big loss to our community and affects us all in many different ways. I feel a sense of loss for both me and my children and am quite sure others feel the same way.
Victor Mesher has put a tremendous amount of energy into this event for five years and 9 months, so Victor please accept my gratitude on behalf of the Montreal Inuit community. We love you very much!
