REMINDER! The Generations Party is this Saturday, May 11, on the Sutton School grounds!

The entire Sutton community is invited to the Generations Party this Saturday, May 11, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This event, organized by the Sutton-Abercorn community development table, will take place on Saturday, May 11, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Sutton School grounds at 19 Highland Street. Come and enjoy a free cold lunch and numerous activities for all ages, in a festive musical atmosphere!

On this day of celebration, a great program is planned:

Free cold meal

Come and enjoy a delicious cold lunch and share a convivial moment with members of the community. The lunch, prepared by volunteers and Racine pop, will include sandwiches and salads. A vegan and gluten-free option will also be on the menu! We’ve set up picnic areas so you can eat in a comfortable area and enjoy the activities. Feel free to bring your own lunch if you prefer!

In an effort to reduce waste, we invite you to bring your own dishes. If needed, compostable dishes will be for sale for $2 on site (cash only).

Trade market

The trade market is a convivial and ecological event that allows members of the community to trade goods and services without the need to use money. The aim is to encourage the exchange of goods and skills, while reducing waste and environmental impact.

The trade market is open to all members of the community. Come and exchange objects in good condition, or even services: cooking lessons for toys in good condition, gardening tools for clothes: anything is possible!
