Presidents Message: Spring 2015

Hello cottagers and residents of Pike Lake. 

Those of us with seasonal cottages on Pike Lake are gearing up for another season of relaxation and enjoyment on the greatest little lake in Ontario. Those of us who reside on the lake year round get the pleasure of seeing the lake transform through its four seasons. Residents reported that the ice went out on April 18th this year and that some of our loon couples are already back. I heard them loud and clear last weekend in the evening.

Mark your calendars for these two annual events:

  • The fourth annual and popular Let’s Celebrate Pike Lake Boatilla and BBQ will take place on Saturday, June 27th. Bring the whole family as well as your guests.

  • Our Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Saturday, July 4th. Please note the new location: the Church Hall in Stanleyville

We are having a new event this year: Bug Talk with Marina Petrovic, a specialist in creepy, crawling, swimming and burrowing bugs that live on the shores of Pike Lake. This event for kids ages 6 -12 will take place on Saturday August 9 at the Fowlie cottage on Pike Lake Route 17A. Details to follow.

The Pike Lake Post will be delivered to your cottage in early June. In it you’ll find lots of useful information about your lake and community. You’ll also find your 2015 membership form. please be sure to fill it out and send it in to us or bring it to the Boatilla. The membership form is also available on the website.

I want to take this opportunity to express my personal gratitude to Kay Rogers for her passion and dedication to the Pike Lake Community Association and for her efforts to build the Pike Lake Community. Kay resigned from the Board following many years of service. No one can challenge Kay’s love for the lake or her commitment to “Keep Pike Lake Healthy”.

I’m hoping 2015 at the lake is full of good weather and great memories for us all.
