SHERBROOKE, September 18, 2014 – On the heels of the 35th edition of Townshippers’ Day in Coaticook on Saturday, September 13, Townshippers’ Association would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the many businesses, organizations and individuals, as well as all who attended and participated in making the day a success.

“Every year, Townshippers’ Day gives the Eastern Townships English-speaking community a chance to shine by showcasing its creativity, heritage, and vitality,” said Rachel Hunting, Executive Director, Townshippers’ Association. “T-Day also helps to broaden the perspective of the local population about the offerings of the English-speaking community while encouraging English-speakers to be more involved with the larger community. The commitment and involvement of so many various organizations and volunteers in Townshippers’ Day is invaluable and has a direct impact on our community.”

The association would like to sincerely thank our 2014 festival partners: CBC, Canadian Heritage, the Sherbrooke Record, the Corporation des Fêtes du 150e anniversaire de Coaticook, Global Excel Management, the Stanstead Journal, as well as the Caisse Desjardins des Verts-Sommets de l’Estrie, Guy Hardy, Député de Saint-François, Harmonie de Coaticook, Musée Beaulne and Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, Pierre Paradis, Député de Brome-Missisquoi, and several others.

A special ‘thank you’ goes to the Club Lions de Coaticook, the Eastern Townships School Board Transportation Department and ACTIBus drivers, along with the many other volunteers who had a hand in making Townshippers’ Day happen.
