The Yamaska Valley Optimist Club has raised nearly $775,000 for the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital Foundation over the past 16 years. The club will add to that total on Sunday, Sept. 30 when it conducts its 17th annual Walk to End Women’s Cancers in Knowlton. If the walk brings in its annual average it will raise the total to well over $800,000. See full story in the Tuesday, September 4 edition of the Brome County News.
