Time management, communication important for recreation agent

By Steve Blake, Special to The Record

Although the job of recreation agent in Stanstead is only part-time and there is a lot to do, Brunia Doiron manages her time effectively. She lives in Sherbrooke so, she says, she does a lot of brainstorming while she drives. She plans to communicate with residents to learn what they like and need.
She has been on the job for a little more than a month, and she is already learning about the culture and the social class of the Stanstead community – and the challenges. “The budget is smaller here,” she said in an interview in her office last week. She had worked as the recreational agent in St. Pascale for a year-and-a-half. “We need to be creative to make things happen with limited money.” But she’s always thinking about ideas. “There are always possibilities.” Like everywhere, she said, it’s difficult to find volunteers. “TLM – toujours le meme.” Doiron said she has done research on Stanstead, and she has maps. The town has a lot of land, so there are possibilities for opportunity. The town also has some buildings that could be converted for recreational potential.
