Celebrating 40 Years of Community, Culture & Advocacy

SHERBROOKE, November 19, 2019 – In the coming weeks, Townshippers’ Association will be celebrating its 40th anniversary in style at two events that will bring together the English-speaking community of the Eastern Townships and get some toes tapping.

On Saturday, November 23, from 5 to 7 p.m., a reception will be held at The Golden Lion Pub & Brewery in Sherbrooke, featuring live jazz music, great food and drink, prizes, and good company. The following week, on Saturday, November 30, starting at 6:30 p.m., a good old-fashioned dance party will be held at The Star Café in Lac-Brome. There will be a buffet dinner, prizes, drinks, and live rock music by The Random Chance.

Many things have changed in the 40 years since the Association was incorporated on December 12, 1979, while many others have remained the same – particularly Townshippers’ dedication to working on behalf of the English-speaking population of the Eastern Townships. Whether this be by representing the interests of this community at the municipal, regional, provincial or federal level; by hosting events that enrich and strengthen the cultural identity of this community; by forming partnerships to ensure access to health and social services in English; or by developing projects that support this community’s youth and seniors, Townshippers’ has constantly strived to support its community.

Townshippers’ invites the public to come and celebrate this legacy of community support, relationship-building, and advocacy. Admission is free for both events, however there is a cost of $20 to enjoy the buffet at the Lac-Brome event. For more information about the Sherbrooke event, please e-mail ta@townshippers.org or call 819-566-5717. For information about the Lac-Brome event, please e-mail ta@townshippers.org or call 450-242-4421.
