In less than nine days, Stanstead will become a hub of the English speaking culture and community for the annual Townshipperâ€™s Day celebration but this year vendors and visitors will have a liquid challenge to live up to.
For the 32nd T-Day, Green Team President Jennifer Reinbold wants to give bottled water the boot.
â€śBishopâ€™s University and the University de Sherbrooke both banned bottled water on campus and it seems like it went pretty well,â€ť Reinbold said. â€śI think its something that is really not that challenging for people to adopt. Almost everybody has two or three reusable water bottles lying around. All weâ€™re asking is that they bring their bottles to T-Day, weâ€™ll have a water source on site for people to fill up at.â€ť
