Despite the pandemic

It looks as though things are brightening up and getting back to a semblance of normalcy. Knowlton Academy has reinstated its ski program and plans are underway to commence an indoor rowing program in preparation for rowing on the lake in May. At St. Edouard’s School the kids have been skating, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. Massey Vanier High School is preparing for a school rowing program this summer as is the Salamander Summer CampTBL Town Hall is open, as is Athletica Lac Brome and the Princess Theatre in Cowansville, a pleasant change from Netflix. Club de la Bonne Humeur has restarted activities as of February 21. The Knowlton Harmony Band has resumed live rehearsals on Tuesday evenings. The Yamaska Valley Optimist Club is holding a new fundraising event to celebrate International Women’s Day. Theatre Lac-Brome will be open for shows in March. The Lions Club is planning for its annual garage sale on the first Saturday of June and Brome Fair organizers are optimistic that a traditional fair will be held in September.
