Brome County Families: A group of families in Lac Brome, West Bolton, Sutton and the surrounding area that advocates for better services, events and facilities for families and young people. It was formed in 2009 after concern about a lack of playgrounds in the area and a decline in the number of families in Lac Brome. See more info in the stories on my Townships news page.
