Explore a future in the Estrie

If you know a city dweller who is thinking about a change of scenery, or you are an employer trying to encourage a prospective employee to move to the Townships, Make Way for YOUth Estrie has a great opportunity for young professionals to test-drive life in the Townships. 

From March 17 to 19, Make Way for YOUth will be hosting a Discovery Days weekend in the Val-Saint-François and Des Sources municipalities —areas with an affordable cost of living, an abundance of career opportunities, and everything need to turn dreams into reality. During the exploratory weekend, plenty of activities have been planned to help participants discover the area, it’s businesses, organizations, and other attractions while building a network of personal and professional contacts. Best of all… it’s on us!

An initiative of Place aux jeunes en région offered to the English-speaking community by Townshippers’ Association, Make Way for YOUth is open to soon-to-be or recent post-secondary graduates ages 18 to 35 who are interested in living and working in the region. It supports young professionals in choosing where to settle and launch their careers.

Spaces are limited, but if you miss out on this one, at least two other exploratory activities are in the works in 2017.

For more information or to register, contact the Make Way for YOUth Migration Agent at [email protected] or call 819-566-5717 (toll-free 1-866-566-5717).

Where to turn? The Resource Team!

Seniors and caregivers of seniors may wish to talk to someone about loneliness or physical and mental health issues or may want someone to accompany them to a notary or doctor’s appointment. Perhaps an older adult you know wishes to find resources dedicated to his or her needs, or simply wants someone to talk to. So where do you turn?

At the March 3 Food for Thought lunch, guest speaker Simon Dancause will share introduce you to the Memphremagog Resource Team “Ressources Relais” – a free, confidential service offering flexible support for a variety of circumstances. Simon has already been spending time listening and serving seniors in the Magog area and wants to hear more about what may be needed to best offer support services for the senior population.

Join us at 12 noon at St. Paul’s United Church hall (211 des Pins, Magog) for a lunch of homemade shepherd’s pie (vegetarian option available), salad, coleslaw, and dessert, and stay for Simon’s presentation at 1 pm. Food For Thought sessions are open to everyone in the Townships community. The presentations are free a small fee of $7 is charged to cover the meal.

Laughter is the best medicine

Laughter can be a great workout for your muscles, a release of stress-relieving hormones, and can even have the power to fight illness. R.H.Rediker CAB and Townshippers’ Association invite you to a fun presentation o Monday, March 6, to discover some of the simple ways you can bring laughter into your life at the Buelah United Church 967 Main Street, Ayers Cliff.

In the workshop, “Laughter is the best medicine,” Laura Teasdale will fill you in on the theory of laughter and its benefits, and you’ll do some simple games that begin as exercises, but end in genuine laughter. The presentation will be from 10 AM to noon followed by a light luncheon. The event is free and no registration is required. For more information please contact Lynn Wood at R.H.
