Name of creator
In 1973, soon after the inauguration of the Robert Fournier arena, the Club de Patinage Artistique d'East Angus (Les Lames Magiques) was founded in East Angus by Denis Martin, the East Angus recreation director, alongside Mrs. Isabelle Dugal and Mrs. Micheline Bouchard. The club operates out of the Robert Fournier Arena and is a non-profit organization whose mission is to teach the basics of skating to anyone at any age. The club was first sponsored by the Filles d'Isabelle and was first chaired by Micheline Bouchard. During the first couple of years, skating lessons were given by Madame Fernande Fraser, a professional and ex-skater from the Holiday on Ice troupe. The leadership of its first administrators (Isabelle Dugal, Madelaine Cathcart, Shirley Hawkes, Lucette Dion, Denise Roy, Jean-Paul Dionne, Jacqueline Munkittrick, Madeleine Legault, Laurence Trépanier and Nicole Bergeron) and the work of volunteers allowed the club to progress. On November 13, 1975, the club joined the East-Angus Sports and Recreation Coordinating Committee, and on March 28, 1977, the club obtained its charter of incorporation. From then on, the club was affiliated with the Regional Association, the Quebec Figure Skating Federation, and eventually became a member of the Canadian Figure Skating Association, now known as Skate Canada. The club offers many different programs such as Patinage Plus, Patinage STAR, Patinage Adulte, and many more, which allow for the development of figure skating in the region. Every year, the club organizes various regional competitions such as the Suzanne Cathcart competitions and the Programme Court competitions, and at the end of each season, the skaters put on a show suitable for any age.
The documents were donated to Société d'histoire et du patrimoine du Haut-St.-François by Dominique Guay in January [2003?]. The holdings of the Société d'histoire et du patrimoine du Haut-St-François was transferred to the Compton County Historical Museum Society at the time of their dissolution in 2006, as the two organizations occupied the Academy building in Eaton Corner. The Club de patinage artistique d'East Angus fonds was then donated to the Eastern Townships Resource Centre by the Compton County Historical Museum Society in 2021.
