Border Fest Thank you’s
Another Border Fest has come and gone and once again it was a success. The parade and fireworks were very popular. The Organizers found it was a slower and less populated event this year for the activities on site but are very grateful of all the volunteers that helped out. First, let’s thank the Recreation Association board members: A J Bedard, Serge Tougas, Peggy Alger, Gislaine Lemay, Wayne Stratton, Brittany Butler and Brigitte Lemay. Parade Organizers: Nickolas Wood and his group of volunteers, D J Smitty and Centre Récréatif Stanstead and the participants. Michael Sudlow and friends who took care of the 5 k run. Our helpers throughout the day: Charles MacIntyre, Réal Houle, Kathy Sheldon, Constance Bédard, Francyne Tougas, Sharon Misener, Roxanne Lapointe, Roger Lussier, Lee-Ann Chase, Bobby Dumas, Nancy Veilleux, Amanda Buzzell and everyone who helped us out in any way. Thank you to the Escouade Desjardins for taking care of the games on site. Myers family and ETWA for great shows. And the organizations that helped us: Stanstead Fire Department, Colby-Curtis Museum and CAB R.H. Rediker.
