Len­noxville Stanstead

Af­ter an ex­ten­sive re­design, it is with great plea­sure that Town­ship­pers’ As­so­ci­a­tion de­buts www.tday.ca, the of­fi­cial web­site of the 33rd Town­ship­pers’ Day, which takes place in scenic Farn­ham on Satur­day, Septem­ber 15th, 2012.

Since its found­ing meet­ing in Oc­to­ber 1979, Town­ship­pers’ Day has grown into the Eastern Town­ships’ English-speak­ing community’s largest cul­tural cel­e­bra­tion and in­for­ma­tion fair, wel­com­ing 8,000 to 10,000 vis­i­tors from all lin­guis­tic backgrounds. On the third Satur­day of Septem­ber, vis­i­tors – English and French – come from far and wide for a day of mu­sic, dance, arts, ar­ti­sans, in­for­ma­tion, ac­tiv­i­ties, healthy food and fun for all ages.

The of­fi­cial www.tday.ca web­site, both bilin­gual and view­able on most mo­bile de­vices, fea­tures dy­namic el­e­ments that pay trib­ute to this well-es­tab­lished an­nual event while pro­vid­ing all the vi­tal in­for­ma­tion needed for vis­i­tors to make the most of Town­ship­pers’ Day 2012. Sur­rounded by colours re­flect­ing this vi­brant re­gion, vis­i­tors to www.tday.ca are greeted by a slideshow pre­sent­ing a glimpse at the his­tor­i­cal and cul­tural el­e­ments that are syn­ony­mous with Town­ship­pers’ Day. The lo­ca­tions of the last 32 host towns in each cor­ner of the re­gion, along with this year’s host Farn­ham, are proudly dis­played along­side the his­tory of the day.

In­for­ma­tion and down­load­able forms can also be found on the web­site for busi­nesses, in­di­vid­u­als and or­ga­ni­za­tions look­ing to en­hance the day through spon­sor­ship, a silent auc­tion do­na­tion or as an ex­hibitor, en­ter­tainer or food ven­dor.

With the launch of the new web­site, Town­ship­pers’ Day an­nounces its par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Fun ‘n Fes­ti­val Se­ries hosted by West­Jet air­line. The on­line con­test aims to se­lect Canada’s favourite fes­ti­val for 2012.
