Here is very good news for the community of Potton and the Mansonville Round Barn Restoration Project, of which you will hear during 2016!

The Groupe bénévole municipal de Potton (GBMP) has won the 1st prize ($10,000) of the Je coop mon projet Contest, at the Annual General Meeting of the Caisse Desjardins du Lac-Memphrémagog held in Magog on April 19, 2016. The participation in this contest is part of the 2nd phase of the Fundraising Campaign for the Mansonville Round Barn that will take place during the whole year.

The $10,000 will be added to the Fonds de la grange ronde, managed by the GBMP with a present balance of $42,000, in order to build new foundations for the barn.

Let us recall that the GBMP has the mandate of cooperating in the management of some Municipal facilities, among others the Round Barn, the Covered Bridge and the Public Market.
