Cynthia Brunelle has been working in recreation in some capacity since she was 15. Her newest position is the director of recreation, tourism, culture, and community life for the Town of Brome Lake. She took over on July 3 following Johanne Morin’s retirement after 27 years. “It’s all new,” she said in an interview in her office at the community centre. “I still need to learn a lot about this job.” The 29-year-old Cowansville native became a swimming teacher and a lifeguard when she was 15. By age 19 she was an aquatic center staff coordinator. Brunelle then studied kinesiology — the science of the mechanics of body movement — at the University of Sherbrooke.
