The month of June brought out a lot of people to enjoy several events in person. It was nice to attend Beaumont Days and the Beaumont Blues and Roots Festival. The RCMP led the parade with the RCMP racecar on hand. We thank Gord Buck, YIELD Association president, for volunteering his time and bring the RCMP racecar. The City of Beaumont presented a monetary donation to the YIELD Association. Thank you to the City for supporting this program.
The RCMP town hall on June 22 was a success, with several presentations made by RCMP units and RCMP partners. The RCMP presented crime statistics for 2021 and shared crime reduction initiatives. Thank you to all the community members in attendance. The town hall presentation is available on the RCMP webpage for your review.
