About Town­ship­pers’: Col­umn’s end is a new be­gin­ning

Sherbrooke Record - - BROME COUNTY -

In Jan­uary 2011, this About Town­ship­pers’ news­pa­per col­umn from Town­ship­pers’ As­so­ci­a­tion made its first ap­pear­ance in the Brome County News. Our first col­umn an­nounced the for­mat — “ev­ery two weeks” with “news about our ac­tiv­i­ties and those of our many part­ners” — and in­tro­duced the team work­ing out of our Knowl­ton of­fice.

Over the years we’ve never had to look too hard to find some­thing to write about; there’s al­ways some­thing go­ing on in our com­mu­nity! Our part­ners are busy with ac­tiv­i­ties and ini­tia­tives, and we have a mul­ti­tude of ever-chang­ing projects on the go of our own.

As the as­so­ci­a­tion’s other com­mu­ni­ca­tions and out­reach meth­ods have grown and changed over our 39year his­tory, the time has come for us to make ad­just­ments to our weekly col­umn in the Sher­brooke Record as well as our bi-weekly col­umn, which you are read­ing at the mo­ment; the dig­i­tal age has forced us to make ad­just­ments that will al­low us to con­tinue our com­mu­nity con­ver­sa­tions in new and dif­fer­ent ways.

While our 227th About Town­ship­pers col­umn is our last, it’s not the last word from Town­ship­pers’. For now, you can still hear us ev­ery Fri­day at 4 p.m. on CIDI 99.1FM (re­peats

on Tues­days at 10 a.m.), read about our ac­tiv­i­ties on our web­site Town­ship­pers.org (make use of our free com­mu­nity cal­en­dar at Town­ship­pers.org/cal­en­dar), and we’ll still be post­ing on Face­book.com/town­ship­pers, and other so­cial me­dia (you can find us @Town­ship­pers on Twit­ter and In­sta­gram).

Of course, we can al­ways be found out in the com­mu­nity at a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties and you can still reach us at our of­fices in Lac-brome at 3-584 Knowl­ton Rd (450-242-4421, toll-free: 1-877-242-4421) or in Sher­brooke at 100 – 257 Queen (819566-5717, toll-free: 1-866-566-5717).

If you are a mem­ber, our Town­ship­pers mag­a­zine is still go­ing strong and the lat­est copy was just sent out. If you are not a mem­ber, we’d love to hear from you! Give our Sher­brooke of­fices a call or sign up on­line at Town­ship­pers.org/mem­ber.

We look for­ward to see­ing you at the newly imag­ined edi­tion of Town­ship­pers’ Day — re­branded as Fes­ti­val des Town­ship­pers Fes­ti­val — on Satur­day, Septem­ber 29, 2018, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Rich­mond Re­gional High School (de­tails com­ing soon at Tday.ca).

We’d like to thank our many part­ners who con­trib­uted to this col­umn space over the last seven years, and to the mem­bers of our com­mu­nity who fol­lowed along. Lastly, we’d like to thank the Brome County News for al­low­ing us to use this space and shar­ing our news with those in the Brome County re­gion.
