Sunshine and smiles for the ­Townshippers’ Festival

By Gordon Lambie

The campus of Massey-Vanier High School in Cowansville was crowded on Saturday as people from all across the Eastern Townships came out to participate in the Townshippers’ Festival. Continuing the nearly 40 year legacy of Townshippers’ Day in the region, the festival offered visitors the opportunity to interact with local community organizations, artisans, and government services who set up as exhibitors in the school cafeteria, while also taking in the sights and sounds of Townships’ arts and culture through a variety of performances on the indoor auditorium stage and an outdoor performance space. “I’m quite delighted, so many things are coming together for us today,” Townshippers’ Association President Gerald Cutting said in the early afternoon, hailing the event as a great success. “We have great weather and I think a lot of people have taken this opportunity to see what is happening at the Townshippers Festival.” See full story in the Monday, Sept. 23 edition of The Record.
