New Dawson Blues Band video release today!
The Dawson Blues Band (the DBB) has grown to 18 members now! They have put together a new video to cheer us and raise support for the students of Dawson College who could use some help.
The name of the DBB song is: “With a lot of help from our friends” inspired by “With a Little Help From My Friends” by the Beatles (released in 1967) and by Joe Cocker (released in 1969) and “You've Got a Friend" by Carole King (released in 1971).
"I want to congratulate all the participants for the great work you accomplished for this project," said organizer and musician Vincent Maggiore (Business Administration).
Enjoy the DBB video, released today for you in the Read More link.
If you enjoy it and can help out, consider a donation to the Dawson College Foundation for the Dawson Financial Aid Program. The community and our friends have now donated more than $5,000. More news to come in August.
The DBB plans to be back in the Fall with more great music for us!

Julie and Julie advise to keep up the health protocols
Even though the Quebec Government continues to open up the province, we all have to keep vigilant to protect the most vulnerable and to prevent a second wave of COVID-19 infections. College Nurses Julie Drolet and Julie Gosselin advise us to:
- keep washing our hands properly and effectively
- continue maintaining a two-metre distance from people outside our household
- wear masks when we cannot maintain the two-metre distance and when entering closed public environments (e.g. grocery stores)
- visit our friends and families outside and from a distance
