Win­ter Mem­o­ries await you on De­cem­ber 15

Sherbrooke Record - - FRONT PAGE - Record Staff

The Len­noxville Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion is invit­ing peo­ple into the heart of the com­mu­nity on De­cem­ber 15 for a new event they are call­ing “Win­ter Mem­o­ries.” Build­ing off of the as­so­ci­a­tion’s mis­sion to pro­mote the eco­nomic and com­mer­cial devel­op­ment of the Bor­ough of Len­noxville, this new fun-filled day aims to bring a lit­tle bit of hol­i­day cheer to the cold days of win­ter.

Although the or­ga­niz­ers are sav­ing some sur­prises for the day it­self, “Win­ter Mem­o­ries” al­ready prom­ises a schedule of un­prece­dented ac­tiv­ity.

In the morn­ing the Len­noxville Li­brary will be host­ing an event that in­vites vis­i­tors to get into the Dan­ish tra­di­tion of Hygge (pro­nounced "hugah"); the cre­ation of a warm and cosy at­mos­phere and en­joy­ing the good things in life. Vis­i­tors of all ages are in­vited to share stories, treats, and Christ­mas cheer from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.,

Af­ter Lunch the Les 3 Fées store at 139 Queen Street will be host­ing a gi­ant Christ­mas card work­shop. To avoid con­fu­sion, this is a work­shop de­voted to the cre­ation of gi­ant Christ­mas cards, which will be tak­ing place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

As the evening rolls around, the Len­noxville Youth Cen­tre will be hold­ing a tree or­na­ment work­shop. Un­like the Christ­mas card event, this ac­tiv­ity lasts only 45 min­utes, from 4 p.m. to 4:45, so those who are in­ter­ested would be bet­ter to show up at 168-B Queen Street ear­lier rather than later. Once that work­shop comes to a close, how­ever, the LYC will host a fes­tive tree light­ing to bring the day’s events to a close on a high note.

Through­out the day vis­i­tors are in­vited to branch out from the or­ga­nized ac­tiv­i­ties to ex­plore Len­noxville’s other lo­cal busi­nesses and take ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­nity to do a lit­tle last-minute shop­ping.

The Len­noxville Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion in­vites you to a day where you will cre­ate new mem­o­ries as you rem­i­nisce about your win­tery fa­vorites. To­gether, let us cre­ate new mem­o­ries in our com­mu­nity.

About the or­ga­ni­za­tion:

The Len­noxville Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion was cre­ated by lo­cal mer­chants in 2016 with sup­port from Com­merce Sher­brooke. Ral­ly­ing around the cause of the bor­ough’s an­nual sum­mer street fes­ti­val, the or­ga­ni­za­tion has grad­u­ally built sup­port and mo­men­tum while work­ing on grow­ing its mem­ber­ship. Ear­lier this year the as­so­ci­a­tion part­nered with The Record to cre­ate the Pur­ple Pro­ject: an ini­tia­tive aimed at con­nect­ing more Bishop’s and Cham­plain stu­dents stu­dents with lo­cal busi­nesses
