The Board of Directors of the Foundation Forget For A Moment has recently voted unanimously to name President Emeritus the founder of the Foundation Ms. Jeannine Lafrenière. After more than eight years of remarkable dedication, Ms. Lafrenière has decided to take a step back from the daily responsibilities of the Foundation and to retire from its Board of Directors.
However, the commitment of Ms. Lafrenière towards the Foundation is not over. She is more than ever ready to contribute actively to the pursuit of the mission of the Foundation, namely to offer a few moments of relief, wonder, and joy at the unexpected sight of nature’s splendour to the sick, the elderly, and to those who care for them, by bringing green spaces to life in hospitals and treatment centres.
“It was not easy to accept Jeannine’s resignation from the Board of the Foundation” said its Chair Mr. Michel Gauthier. He added, “Not only has she founded the Foundation, she has been its soul and main promoter over the past eight years. Her determination and dedication have led the Foundation to the point where it is now. It will be our honour to bring it to its next stage.”

“Jeannine has accomplished wonders since 2011 and I am happy she has accepted to be our President Emeritus and as adviser to the Board, to share her experience and wisdom”, declared the President of the Foundation Mr. Alain Pineau, who added “I have no doubt that she will continue to show a keen interest in the future of the Foundation, whose aim is to bring some comfort and joy to the sick persons, to older people and to all those who look after them.”
