As part of the Vaudreuil-Dorion Volunteers' night held Saturday, October 1, a special tribute was paid to Normand Desjardins (centre), who is stepping down after 52 years of volunteering with l’Association de baseball La Presqu’Île.
Mayor Guy Pilon (holding microphone) presented him with the Honorary Medal of the City and Councillors François Séguin and Paul Dumoulin announced that the "Pavillon de Dorion-Gardens" located at 671, rue Valois, now bears the name "Pavillon Normand Desjardins."
Mr. Desjardins has devoted over 50 years to develop baseball in Vaudreuil-Dorion. He was president of l’Association de baseball mineur since its inception in Dorion in the1960s, a position he continued to hold during mergers with other associations in Vaudreuil in 1994 and Île Perrot in 2007. He completed his term as president in 2016.
