Special Edition of Tempo: a Showcase for Brome Lake Merchants

Brome Lake, July 29, 2020 — In this particular period for our merchants, the Town of Brome Lake is proud to unveil a special edition of the Tempo newspaper, produced thanks to an outstanding collaboration with the entire team. For one issue, the monthly’s journalists have swapped their objective eye for a bilingual edition promoting the stores and businesses located in Brome Lake.  

The 26,000 copies of this issue will be distributed not only in Brome Lake, but also in nine other communities (Cowansville, Bromont, Brigham, Sutton, Dunham, West Bolton, East Bolton, Brome and Saint-Étienne-de-Bolton), in order to make as many people as possible aware of the treasures, well-kept secrets and other good attractions that make up Brome Lake.

In today’s context, the notion of local tourism takes on its full importance, since it allows to limit travel. “Elected officials found it relevant to insist on attracting people from the surrounding area,” said Town of Brome Lake Mayor Richard Burcombe. “The message is now being sent to residents of the surrounding communities: come and visit us, whether it’s to discover or rediscover a place that is only a few minutes away by car!”

The Town of Brome Lake would also like to acknowledge the immense work accomplished by the artisans of Tempo, which is usually not published in August. Volunteering their time, they did not skimp on the efforts and many hours of work.

“We are pleased to have been able to count on the participation of Tempo, a bilingual media organization with strong roots in our community. They did a colossal amount of work within a tight deadline,” said the Mayor.

“The uncertainty that currently affects several sectors, including businesses and restaurants, was a concern for us. It’s our way of contributing by making them known and letting people discover how attractive the tourism offering is in Brome Lake,” says Francine Bastien, a Tempo journalist and also one of the project’s pilots.

The 32-page special issue is expected to hit the mailboxes over the next few days. For more information, those who are curious can also consult tourismelacbrome.com before coming to visit our charming town!
