About Us

Share this Page on Facebook
Many young adults live and work in the Chaleur region there was no group or “network” to bring these youth together. Founding members of Synergies knew that it was time to act. Synergies Chaleur will have monthly social activities and a variety of events for all interests.

Synergies
Is the creation of an environment for young adults or the “young at heart” (19 and over) to provide meaningful social activities while providing an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.

Brings youth together to create a sense of community in the Chaleur region.

Serves as a bilingual organization and members are free to speak in the language of their choice. Synergies operates on a system of respect for all ideas and appreciates everyone’s contributions.

Synergies is not just for “young professionals” but for all young adults in the region. Whether you are a plumber, a carpenter, a lawyer or a student, you are welcome! 

The name Synergies
Synergies is defined as the interaction of two or more agents or forces so that their combined effect is greater than the sum of their individual effects. The more young adults that come together in the Chaleur region, the more positive change can be evoked.

Logo conception
Graphic artist extraordinaire Mike Goyette of Websolutions conceived the Synergies logo. The colour green was selected as it represented transformation, change, harmony, education and the joining of people together in groups. The circular image represents unity and the importance of working together.

Leadership, culture, social, mentorship, personal and professional development are some of the facets that Synergies will focus on. There really is something for everyone at Synergies Chaleur.

Kevin is the morning news anchor and morning show co-host at Max104.9, the Chaleur region’s English language radio station. When he’s not covering events or giving the people of the Chaleur region their daily dose of local and provincial news, Kevin creates custom cakes. He enjoys singing and playing numerous instruments. For Kevin, music is not only a form of indulgence but also a therapeutic tool that helps keep his feet on the ground. A singer/songwriter and instrumentalist, and having a plethora of musical friends, if Kevin is there, chances are a guitar or mandolin are not too far behind. He enjoys a wide variety of outdoor activities as well. Camping, fishing, hunting, geocaching and exploring, along with his love of music, keep Kevin’s weekends both fun and fulfilling.

An active member of Synergies Chaleur from the beginning, Kevin was both excited and appreciative having been offered a seat on their board of directors. A native of the Chaleur region, he is eager to continue welcoming newcomers to the area with Synergies Chaleur and showing them this special place he proudly calls “home”.

2013-04-16
Let me start out by saying that I am not a prudish person. Nor am I the personification of perfect manners all the time.  I argue, criticize, disagree and challenge opinions and positions on a regular basis.  The important thing to remember is the HOW I do these things.
