Sutton History Ralley

Tourists rally around historicial buildings in Sutton

By M. H. Starhemberg
It's the brainchild of Marie Amyot (above) of the Sutton tourist office, coincides with the Sutton Fall festival and will end on October 16: A foot Ralley for tourists to discover the historical roots of this town. Available at the tourist office across from the town hall are questionnanaires which have sixteen items. A tourist can walk the town, questionnnaire in hand and visit the buildings mentioned, all of which have descriptive plaques on the front lawn. Questions may be, "What was the material used to create this structure?", or "Which religious groups made up the first congregation of this church?". All the clues to the questions can be found on the historical markers and after people submit their filled-out forms, they will be eligible to a drawing of a stay for two at Sutton's B&B "Gite Vert Le Mont, complete with breakfasts and afternoon teas.
A drawing for the grand award will be held at the tourist office on October 21.
