Not To Miss In December
Knowlton Pub Presents "Elektrip"
On Monday December 29th Eugene Brotto's band "Elektrip" will be playing at the Knowlton Pub in what will surely be a night of great music and a lot of fun.
Elektrip is a mix of rock and groove with a healthy dose of electro and a performance by this multi-piece band is often like a tight-rope of experimental styles that progress without a safety net. Intense rythmic ambiances and flowing colors of musical movement will take you from sweat to pleasure! Yeah!
Entry is only $3 and proceeds will be donated to charity. Come out and celebrate the end of the year with friends and dance the night away. The Knowlton Pub is at 267 Knowlton Road across from the Library.

Christmas Bird Count
The annual tradition of the Audobon Societies Christmas Bird Count will take place on Saturday December 15th in Lac Brome. Volunteer bird counters all over North America will be collecting data to help researchers understand and maintain a database of bird activity. Last year there were over 3.50 million of our little feathered friends counted by close to 12,000 volunteers in Canada. The history of the bird count dates to 1900 when scientist Frank Chapman decided to take his friends out for a hunt...but instead of a traditional shoot-to-kill hunt he instead led his group into the forest to count and record the different species. 107 years later the Christmas Bird Count is still going strong! For more ino on the Brome Lake Bird Count call Tom Moore at 450-539-3336 or visit the Audobon website at www.adobon.org/bird/cbc
Merry Christmas Brome Lake!
God give you blessings at Christmas time;
Stars for your darkness, sun for your day,
Light on the path as you search for the Way,
And a mountain to climb.
God grant you courage this coming year,
Fruit for your striving, friends if you roam,
Joy in your labor, love in your home,
And a summit to clear.

Christmas Fireworks Display
As part of the month long Festival of Lights the village is planning their second annual winter fireworks display. The show is simply spectacular as the fireworks light up the village sky and sparkle over the ColdBrook Park. Last year's fireworks were a huge success and the streets were full of people who braved the chilly temperatures to see the show. It is rare to see fireworks so close to the village and it is really a fantastic show as the fireworks are set to music. Bring a chair and a thermos of eggnog! See The 2006 Winter Fireworks
