Summer is in full swing, and so are activities at Pike Lake!  

At the AGM last weekend, I was thrilled that the PLCA membership resoundingly supported acceptance of our new constitution and plans for this summer and beyond.  

The new constitution has been thoughtfully researched and crafted to reflect our collective vision, and is the foundation from which the PLCA will continue to build for yet another 50 years.  With the lion’s share of constitution discussions behind us, we can now turn our focus to community building initiatives that will help celebrate and protect the lake we all love. 

Firstly, members approved implementation of a marker buoy program.  This new flagship program will improve water safety and be a proud reminder of the PLCA’s presence and contribution to a healthy and safe environment.  This initiative is already showing its potential to engage the entire community, with many volunteers already stepping forward.  

Secondly, we are working to infuse more fun into the Association.  This year, we will mark the PLCA’s 50th anniversary and Canada 150 with a special community day on August 5th: a Pig Roast followed by a Boat-in movie night.  We will be celebrating with old-fashioned games, and our Reeve, Keith Kerr, will confer the Lanark County Legacy Cottage plaques to eligible Pike Lake families. 

Thank you to Eric and Danielle for offering their property for the pig roast and to the Fowlie Family for hosting the movie night. I would love to see us have more such community and stewardship events.  For example, are you an experienced birder or amateur astronomer? How about leading a meet-up for some bird watching or star-gazing?  This would be a great way to share your passion, enjoy the outdoors, and connect with your neighbours on the lake.  I encourage you to step forward with your ideas! 

To purchase tickets for the Pig Roast, volunteer with the marker buoy program, or share your ideas for another PLCA community event, please email info@pikelake.ca.

See you all on August 5th!
