Faculty Club Newsletter April 2017 Edition
Now that March is finally behind us, we look forward to beautiful weather in April. It’s the perfect time of year to visit McGill University’s sister property, the Gault Estate. Located on the shores of Lac Hertel in Mont Saint-Hilaire, the reserve offers local residents and the general public a mini recreational retreat. A place to find peace of mind or organise an executive meeting, the staff on hand is ready to fulfill all your needs. The Gault Estate was officially renamed the Gault Nature Reserve by McGill University and is recognised as a private natural reserve under the natural heritage conservation act by the Ministère du Développement durable de l’Environnement et des Parcs du Québec. See website for more details: http://www.mcgill.ca/gault/gault-nature-reserve-mont-saint-hilaire
The Faculty club has decided to upgrade its coffee machine to be able to provide high quality, expresso, cappuccino and latte. We hope that you will appreciate the change and enjoy a great coffee.
