Plot: For several weeks now, something has been amiss on the Townships Trail. Objects have been disappearing or turning up in unexpected places. Someone—or something—has been playing games, to the dismay of Olivia, the employee responsible for assisting visitors.
Ghost hunter Glenn Stevens has been tapped to investigate. Thanks to his paranormal detection doohickeys, he discovers that the disturbances are indeed the work of a spirit. But not just any! It’s the ghost of Queen Lil, a manageress looking for her precious ring.
Olivia and Glenn soon realize that the only way to rid the premises of this inconvenient visitor is to help her find what she is looking for.
Mansonville Cœur Villageois
Mansonville, the administrative centre of the Township of Potton, obtained in June 2017 its accreditation to the ‘’Cœurs Villageois’’ network, an original project of Tourisme Cantons-de-l’Est.
This recognition means that the village has been able to develop citizen involvement through unifying projects, highlight its natural, cultural and human assets and provide improved welcoming services for visitors.
VIDEO: During the summer of 2018 and 2019, Tourisme Cantons-de-l’Est has produced videos on 8 ‘’Cœurs Villageois’’ villages. We present to you the one on Mansonville. Thank you to the citizens of Potton who participated: Gwynne Basen, Hiro Gagnon, Lucie Blanchard, Roger Arbour and Martin Gendron.
In addition, there are 13 ‘’Cœurs Villageois’’ villages on the territory of the Eastern Townships, including the village of Mansonville. Discover them HERE.
Come and taste the cultural diversity of the Canton of Potton, whose gastronomic influences are as varied as the origins of its inhabitants. A French bakery and a Polish deli are among the restaurants not to be missed in the village of Mansonville, while you can also opt for a good poutine or excellent table d’hôte close by.
Do you prefer to stay overnight? Bed-and-breakfast and campsites are ready to welcome you.
