"Now we have a spokesperson. She is a well-known, well-loved figure
in Quebec, comedian and humorist Marie-Lise Pilote. We are delighted
that she accepted our invitation. She has fallen in love with European
Neighbours' Day and is pleased to help us publicise it to a broad audience. Her presence will
also help us obtain sponsors."

displayed on a computer screen in the middle of a poster, as seen in the photo below.
