The Board of Directors of your LWRA held an enjoyable Friday evening “barbeque meeting” graciously hosted by Jan MacKillican at her cottage behind the islands on July 24 with husband Dave expertly handling the barbequing.
Details of the organizational tasks necessary for the Annual Cottagers’ Picnic to be held on the front lawn of Limerick Lake Marina on Saturday, August 1 were the big items on the agenda. This year the main course will be a fully catered meal with cottagers only asked to bring a dessert to add to the kids’ favourite table. Greg Hannah and his band will be on hand to provide music for the event, which starts around 4 p.m. and Greg will also be organizing an “Open Mic” session so if you like to play be sure to bring your musical instruments along. There will be lots of games set up for the kids before dinner is served and this year the Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be conducted just before dinner. If anyone is interested in joining the LWRA there will be a membership booth set up to make that easy. Volunteers to help setup for the picnic will be welcomed at 1 p.m. when the annual “figure-out-how-to-set-up-the-tents event” takes place and if anyone is interested in joining the Board of Directors to help preserve the quality of our cottage life experience they may talk to any director either before the picnic or by speaking up during the AGM. Nominations from the floor for a seat at the table will be accepted as part of the AGM.
Thanks were expressed to George Offshack for once again allowing us the use of his property for the picnic.
It is a busy weekend with the canoe races scheduled for Saturday at 10 a.m. at Fraser’s Beach. If you join in one of the many race categories you should be able to build up a good appetite for the picnic which is priced at only $12 for adults and $6 for kids.
Then on Sunday, August 2 at 2 p.m there should be sails unfurled for the annual sailboat races which will use the islands as one of the markers in this annual challenge with the elements. If Mother Nature co-operates with fine winds it will be twice around the triangular course to complete the race. Anyone with a sailboat is welcome to show up at the start line just before the starting horn sounds at 2 p.m.
So, talk to your friends and neighbours around the lakes and encourage them to participate in these LWRA events. Our mission is to have some fun and a voice where needed to protect the quality of the cottage environment we all enjoy so much.
