The or­ga­niz­ing team is al­ready en­thu­si­as­ti­cally plan­ning the 2016 Town­ship­pers’ Day (T-Day), the 37th an­nual cel­e­bra­tion of the English-speak­ing com­mu­nity of the his­tor­i­cal Eastern Town­ships, to be held in beau­ti­ful Brome, Que­bec, on Satur­day, Septem­ber 17. The or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee invites in­di­vid­u­als and or­ga­ni­za­tions to par­tic­i­pate as ex­hibitors, part­ners and sup­port­ers, in this key com­mu­nity event fo­cused on show­cas­ing the cre­ativ­ity, her­itage and vi­tal­ity of English-speak­ing com­mu­nity. Since 1979, this bilin­gual fam­ily-friendly cul­tural fes­ti­val and in­for­ma­tion fair unites the English-speak­ing and French-speak­ing com­mu­ni­ties in the re­gion, through dance and mu­sic, arts and crafts, ac­tiv­i­ties and food. Or­ga­nized by Town­ship­pers’ As­so­ci­a­tion, a non-profit com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tion, and the Town of Brome Lake, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Brome Vil­lage and West Bolton, this year’s event is re­turn­ing to the Brome fair­grounds, 345 Stage­coach Road. It’s time for artisans and ex­hibitors to re­serve their ta­bles for this year’s Town­ship­pers’ Day on Septem­ber 17th, in Brome for the sec­ond year in a row. Ex­hibitors At­tract­ing more than 4,000 vis­i­tors last year, T-Day pro­vides a valu­able op­por­tu­nity for artisans to show­case lo­cal prod­ucts, and for com­pa­nies, or­ga­ni­za­tions and in­sti­tu­tions to in­tro­duce their ser­vices or ac­tiv­i­ties to the com­mu­nity. This year 90 spa­ces – as­signed on a first-come, first-served ba­sis – will be avail­able to fea­ture artisans, com­mu­nity/non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions, busi­ness, gov­ern­ment or­ga­ni­za­tions and ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, as well as his­tory and her­itage groups. For the first time, po­ten­tial ex­hibitors can reg­is­ter eas­ily on­line through the Par­tic­i­pate sec­tion at TDay. ca! Forms can also be down­loaded from the same sec­tion or picked up from Town­ship­pers’ of­fices in Sher­brooke or Lac-Brome. Sup­port­ers and Silent Auc­tion Do­na­tions Since T-Day is a non-profit event, the fes­ti­val re­lies on the gen­er­ous sup­port of spon­sors and donors. A num­ber of sup­port op­por­tu­ni­ties, de­signed to meet all bud­gets, are avail­able, pro­vid­ing a cost ef­fec­tive means to pro­mote your prod­ucts and ser­vices to a large num­ber of vis­i­tors. Fi­nan­cial sup­port is rec­og­nized lead­ing up to and fol­low­ing the fes­ti­val. In-kind do­na­tions and items for the ever pop­u­lar silent auc­tion are also warmly wel­comed. Do­na­tions of new items are fea­tured on the fes­ti­val web­site be­fore and af­ter the event.
