Six community organizations host
festive open house on December 20

SHERBROOKE, December 7, 2017 – Community members of all ages are invited to celebrate the holidays with the community organizations in the Marguerite Knapp Building at the annual Open House from 5 pm to 7 pm on Wednesday, December 20 in Sherbrooke’s Borough of Lennoxville. 

Meet and mingle with the team behind Townshippers’ Association, a non-profit organization serving the region’s English-speaking community and learn about their many community programs, activities, and projects. Enjoy refreshments while getting to know five other community organizations that share the building including the Lennoxville and District Women’s Centre, Mental Health Estrie, Townshippers’ Foundation, Townships Sun, and the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network (QAHN).

Earn some extra “nice” points before the holidays by bringing new Hats, Underwear, Gloves, Socks, and Scarves, and other warm articles of clothing, to donate towards Mental Health Estrie’ HUGS campaign. All cash gifts of $10 and over will be used to purchase warm essentials and issued a tax receipt.

QAHN will have copies of their latest issue of Quebec Heritage News, and in honour of the festive season and open house, will offer all new members a special holiday membership rate.   

Visitors can also take advantage of some last-minute holiday shopping from Townshippers’ Association’s boutique and give someone a taste of the Townships with books, music, cards, and artwork from the Townships Expression collection.

Everyone is welcome to this free event at the Marguerite Knapp building, 257 rue Queen, Sherbrooke (Lennoxville), from 5 to 7 on Wednesday, December 20, 2017. If you’re new to the area, this is a great chance to meet new people and see what these community organizations can do for you.
