A rainbow for Coaticook

Record Staff

As a way of reaching out at a time that is proving difficult for everyone, the town of Coaticook has painted the Victor-Laurier-Vincent Bandshell in the middle of town like a rainbow.
“I am very happy that we have made the decision to put a rainbow in the heart of our city,” said Mayor Simon Madore. “It is important that everyone keeps their spirits up and stays confined. This is the only way out of it. After the pandemic, the rainbow will remind us that the population of Coaticook is strong and that it remains united despite the bad weather.” Located in Chartier park on the side of the Les Jardins du Parc seniors’ residence, the bandshell is easily visible to anyone passing through town along Child Street and will be illuminated at night so that the symbol of hope remains present for people at all times of day.
Similar gestures have recently been made in different forms by other local municipalities, including in Sherbrooke and Windsor where the town halls have been lit up with coloured rainbow lights after nightfall.
