The

Stanstead Youth Co­op­er­a­tive

The or­ga­niz­ers are now look­ing for young peo­ple, aged 12 to 17, who would like to work this sum­mer and cit­i­zens who have jobs that could be han­dled by this age group, such as gar­den­ing, lawn mow­ing, weed­ing, paint­ing, pool clean­ing, babysit­ting and more.

This year the CJS is hold­ing a con­test that will see one lucky win­ner get help with their gar­den­ing, paint­ing or pool main­te­nance all sum­mer. The “Win a gar­dener for the sum­mer” con­test will pro­vide the win­ner of the con­test with a six week con­tract, of one and a half hours per week, from July 3rd to Au­gust 10th, for work of their choice that fits in with the Co­op­er­a­tive’s man­date. The place of work must be on the ter­ri­tory of Stanstead and the prop­erty owner must pro­vide the nec­es­sary equip­ment. Tick­ets at $3 each or two for $5 are on sale at the Caisse Desjardins de Stanstead, the Stanstead Town Hall, the CAB RH Rediker and the CJE Mem­phrem­a­gog. The draw­ing will take place on June 26th.
