Record Staff

The Waterville Tourism and Culture Committee is supporting an initiative of local singer Tim Brink, who wanted to offer a musical break to the population by organizing a musical city tour through the streets of Waterville this Sunday, June 14 between 4 and 5:30 p.m.
Concerned about the impact of isolation and committed that he could, in his own way, bring happiness to Waterville families and seniors, singer-songwriter Tim Brink has put together a musical city tour. Accompanied by guitarist Dominique Massicotte, they will perform several songs, including the latest compositions from his first solo album: This is Ours.
“In this time of Covid, I wanted to make a difference in my community. Despite the technology that allows us to keep connected, I, like many people, still feel more cut off from the world than ever. We singers and musicians love this job because it allows us to interact with people through our music. This direct contact is what feeds us and inspires us. So, I proposed this tour in the streets of Waterville hoping to fill this void and bring a little happiness. The idea was immediately accepted and then everything was put in place to allow us to do this tour in a safe and enjoyable way for everyone,” Brink explained in a recent press release.
The municipality of Waterville is encouraging the population to get out and enjoy the event.
“Having been unable to host this year’s popular Neighbours’ Day and United for the Cause run, we believe that this musical tour organized by Tim Brink will allow our citizens to keep in touch with each other. Since it is now possible to gather outside, 10 people from 3 different addresses, 2 metres apart, our citizens will be able to take advantage of this opportunity to welcome members of their extended families on their lawn. To date, we have seen a great deal of cooperation from our citizens in respecting the rules of distance and hygiene. This is why we believe that we will have everything in place to facilitate this outdoor activity in a safe and enjoyable manner,” commented Mayor Nathalie Dupuis.
On Sunday, June 14, the tour will begin at 4 p.m. on Principale Street North, near André Street and head towards Principale South and will end between 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on Compton Street East. The complete route will be available on the City of Waterville’s website and on the City’s Facebook and Tim Brink’s Facebook. In addition, public parking lots near the route are indicated to allow non-residents to attend the tour while respecting the two-meter distance required by public health. In case of rain, the activity will be postponed to the following Sunday, same time.
