Community groups settling into their new space

By Gordon Lambie

There are still boxes to unpack and signs to put on doors, but business is more or less up and running for the four organizations that made the move from the old Marguerite Knapp building to 3355 College Street in Lennoxville this past December. Townshippers’ Association, Mental Health Estrie, the Quebec Anglophone Heritage Network (QAHN), and the Townships Sun all moved into the new space in the latter end of 2019. “We were trying to stay together as much as possible because we’ve been together in a community-oriented space for more than a decade,” said Rachel Hunting, Executive Director of Townshippers’ Association. “It’s good for the groups and it’s good for the community.” While different in both location and layout from the Marguerite Knapp building, Hunting said that her impression is that the new space will likely work in very much the same way for both the organizations inhabiting it and the public. The building formerly housed the Dixville Home Foundation and other related groups, she said, but was also once a private home. See full story in the Wednesday, Jan. 8 edition of The Record.
