Head to Farn­ham for T-day!

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE 1 - Farn­ham

The his­toric vil­lage of Farn­ham, which sits on the shores of the Ya­maska River, will be the site of Town­ship­pers’ Day, this Satur­day. The or­ga­niz­ers have put their own stamp on the day’s events, in­clud­ing many ac­tiv­i­ties for the whole fam­ily like in­flat­able struc­tures, the Lit­tle Tykes Cor­ner, Skate­board­ing with the Youth Cen­tre and a Fam­ily Rally.

There will be in­for­ma­tion

booths, artist kiosks and even lo­cal food prod­ucts for sale at Ecole Jean Jac­ques Ber­trand, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and live mu­sic and danc­ing, be­gin­ning at 11:00 am, at the En­ter­tain­ment Tent. A me­choui din­ner will cap off the day at 6:00 in the evening.

But what will make this Town­ship­pers’ Day ex­tra spe­cial is sure to be the visit by the Royal 22nd Reg­i­ment. “The Royal 22nd Reg­i­ment will ex­er­cise the Free­dom of the City which will be­gin with a cer­e­mony at 1:30,” said De­nis Riel, the hon­orary chair of the 2012 Town­ship­pers’ Day Com­mit­tee. “I asked Ma­jor-Gen­eral Alain Fo­rand, who is orig­i­nally from Farn­ham, if they could come to the town on Town­ship­pers’ Day. They’ve been twice be­fore. There will be about seventy sol­diers with mu­sic, march­ing, flags fly­ing, drums beat­ing. Even the Mas­cot should be there if he’s up for the trav­el­ling – he’s very old!” added Mr. Riel. Later in the af­ter­noon, the Reg­i­ment will take part in a cer­e­mony to chris­ten a new park in Farn­ham that will be named af­ter Ma­jor-Gen­eral Fo­rand.

“I hope peo­ple will come and learn a lit­tle about the his­tory of Farn­ham; many peo­ple don’t re­al­ize we were named af­ter a city in Eng­land. I think we are a very good ex­am­ple of how peo­ple can live with re­spect for each other; lan­guage is not im­por­tant. The French and English need each other here; it’s been like that in the Eastern Town­ships for hun­dreds of years!” com­mented Mr. Riel.

“It’s been quite a bit of work to or­ga­nize the event but it’s been fun to work with the Town Hall. We’ve had noth­ing but 100% sup­port from the mayor and all the coun­cilors,” con­cluded Mr. Riel. You were close to us to share our grief af­ter the deaths of (born Good­sell) oc­curred July 20th, 2012 Your kind­ness and moral sup­port have been a great con­so­la­tion in mourn­ing.

Saint-Esprit, Toi qui ré­sous tous les prob­lèmes, Toi qui éclaires tous les chemins pour m’aider à at­tein­dre mon but, Toi qui me donnes le don divin de par­don­ner et d’ou­blier le mal que l’on m’a fait,Toi qui te trou­ves à mes côtés dans toutes les cir­con­stances de la vie, je veux, par cette courte prière, te re­mercier pour tout et te con­firmer, une fois de plus, que je ne voudrais ja­mais être sé­paré de toi,même et en dépit de toute ten­ta­tion matérielle il­lu­soire. Je veux être avec toi dans la Gloire éter­nelle. Merci pour Ta miséri­corde en­vers moi et les miens. (Vous de­vez récitez cette prière pen­dant trois jours con­sé­cu­tifs. En­suite, la faveur de­mandée vous sera ac­cordée, même si elle vous paraît dif­fi­cile à obtenir.
