President’s Letter


Winter is definitely putting up a fight – it doesn’t want to leave even though spring is supposed to be here.  Scraping the ice off my car in the city this morning was not much fun.  Looking at pictures of our beloved cottage country made me very unhappy with snow everywhere.  Snug Harbour Road has been flooded and our little “Trail” is solid ice Yuk!

On a happier note, I was at the Cottage Show a couple of weekends ago and it made me happy to see boats, docks outside furniture and so I am sure it won’t be long before we can enjoy the cottage.

This coming season, your West Carling Association is planning a number of events for you and your family. There is an event on July 10th for kids 6-12.  It is in conjunction with the Library and is called Animal Tracks and will focus on local animals, how to identify their tracks and make plaster tracks with the kids. Watch for the registration for this.  Sounds amazing! Other events will be posted on our website so make sure you check things out.

Remember that we do have an Associate membership that allows your spouse and or children to join as long as there is one full membership for each property. There is a focus again this year on increasing our membership so I ask that you speak to your neighbours and friends about becoming members. Also consider volunteering to help with our events or to become a Board member.

Our AGM will be held on Saturday July 27th which is a change from our usual Sunday date at the Carling council Chambers and our Annual Picnic and Regatta will be held on Saturday August 3rd with the rain date on the 4th at the beach in Fitzgerald Bay. This is a fun event and a nice opportunity meet your neighbours.  Lots of fun for the kids too. I hope to see you there.

I look forward to having an opportunity to chat with many of you over the summer. As I mentioned there are a number of events being planned which I hope you will attend.  We also value your input so please don’t hesitate to contact me or any Board member with your suggestions.

Enjoy this newsletter and remember to keep checking our website for events!

Here’s to a wonderful, summer filled with warm and happy times with family and friends!
