In the 1940s she founded a home for handicapped persons in the village of Austin. As the agency expanded it also shifted in format, going from institutionalization to de-institutionalization and social integration of its clients.

TBL: Year one a slower recovery than new administration hoped for

November 10, 2014

November 2013 marked a dramatic change of guard for the dissatisfied citizens of the Town of Brome Lake when a new mayor and five new councillors were elected into office and leaving only one from the previous administration to carry on. One year into it and there is a kind of a hush in Knowlton part of TBL. At a local garage, clients are saying that things in town feel a lot better. The same sentiment is reverberated at some of the restaurants. After seemingly a number of years of turmoil from the ranks there are rumblings that “things are going a lot better now.”
