Woolrich Warehouse Sale
The ever popular Woolrich Warehouse Sale is taking place at the Oddfellows Hall at 476 Knowlton Road, accross from the Depanneur Rouge. The 4 day sale gives residents and visitors a chance to buy the quality Woolrich clothing at a fraction of the regular retail price.

Get their early beacuse the line-ups are like what you would expect to see at a Rolling Stones concert!
Decades before the Civil War - before telephones, automobiles and airplanes were invented - Woolrich was an established company supplying apparel and woolen cloth to those whose lives often depended on rugged, reliable, outdoor clothing. In 2005, Woolrich celebrates an amazing history of 175 years of continuous operation.

Established in 1830, Woolrich is today the oldest clothing company and woolen mill in the nation. From the creation of the now famous red and black Buffalo Check, to supplying apparel to three of Admiral Byrd's Antarctic expeditions, Woolrich has continued the legacy of reliable outdoor clothing for the better part of two centuries.

The super-sale takes place Wednesday, Thursday, Friday from 10AM till 7PM and Saturday from 10AM till 4PM. Remember to get to the Oddfellows Hall early because the Lac Brome folks like to start lining up about three hours in advance!

More info by calling 450-243-0058.

Remembering Pavarotti
A musical presentation by Henry Schreiber.

Luciano Pavarotti, was an Italian operatic tenor, who crossed over into popular music and became one of the world's most famous vocal performers. He was one of The Three Tenors and was well known for his televised concerts and media appearances. Pavarotti was also noted for his charity work benefiting refugees, the Red Cross and other causes. He was born in Modena to the family of a baker. After abandoning the dream to become a professional football goalkeeper, Pavarotti spent seven years in vocal training and began his career as a tenor in 1961 in Italy. He sang in houses in The Netherlands, Vienna, London, Ankara, Budapest and Barcelona.

The young tenor earned valuable experience and significant recognition while touring on the invitation of soprano Joan Sutherland and during his 1965 US debut in Miami on her recommendation. His position was solidified in the years between 1966 and 1972, during which Pavarotti first appeared at Milan's La Scala, other major European houses and, in 1968, NYC's Metropolitan Opera to great acclaim.

For the newly freed black residents of Colfax, Louisiana, the beginning of Reconstruction promised them the right to vote, own property, and at last, control their own lives. But in the space of a day, angry whites would take back Colfax in one of the deadliest incidents of racial violence in Southern history, In the bitter aftermath, the Tademys and the Smiths will have to deal with the wreckage, push on, and build a better life for their sons and daughters over the next seventy years.

The Olive Route (Non-fiction)
