Making Pervana’s dream a reality

By Emilie Hackett, Special to The Record

Community Learning Centre Coordinator Pervana Mladenof spent the last year of her life researching fundraising options to build a ‘green classroom’ gazebo at Princess Elizabeth Elementary School (PEES), a project that she held dear to her heart. Although the Memphremagog CLC coordinator tragically passed away from an aggressive cancer in June, her colleague and friend Dominique Roy has pledged, alongside her daughter Jennily Crook, to keep Pervana’s dream alive. To do so, Crook and Roy have organized a fundraising event, that will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2019, at PEES in Magog. The family barbecue will welcome artists and invite attendees to the dance floor, while there will be a photo booth, cotton candy, popcorn, inflatable games, and face painting for children. “The event will be held from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. People are invited to enjoy a nice barbecue with a musical duo that will be playing from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. There will be a country music show with a band from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.,” explained Crook. See full story in the Wednesday, Aug. 28 edition of The Record.
