As updates come available we will continue to post links in the Latest News. Our approach is to use links to point you to information in external sites, rather than directly publishing information, unless it is specific to Loon Call Lake.
The 58F Road Committee met and John McGrath has sent the road association newsletter out. Road fees for the 2020 year are due now. The committee has decided to collect the same fees as in 2018. Please send a cheque made out to Loon Call Lake Road Association 58F (LCLRA for short) to John or you can e-transfer (contact John for the email address).
(The full newsletter with financial information is available from John).
Road Association Presidents: If you would like a synopsis of your Road Association to be included in Latest News, use the Contact Us page to reach us and we will let you know where to send your information.
The ice is out. The snow is gone. Birds are calling.Things are awakening at Loon Call Lake.
Since cottagers are beginning to think about cottages we thought it a good time to reconnect. We are in the 5th week of “physical distancing” and restrictions imposed by the Covid 19 pandemic, and nothing is normal. Even the thought of going to the cottage is fraught – should we? shouldn’t we? are we allowed? Information changes regularly and we will attempt to keep you updated on the website.
This letter introduces you to our wonderful restructured website where current information is located and updated regularly.
A huge thanks to Vickie Hartog and her daughter Kathryn Hartog who revised the website! Our thanks also go to Erin Billinghurst and her dad Bruce, who started the website and continued it until recently
Our website: Loon Call Lake includes a link to a video by our Mayor Carolyn Amyotte regarding Covid-19 and visits to the cottage. Although our local mayor is encouraging, our premier and local and federal health officials suggest that cottagers stay home in order to reduce the potential for spread of Covid19 to local residents and to reduce the potential impact on cottage country healthcare resources.
I will be attending a FOCA webinar about cottage country considerations and COVID-19 on Tuesday April 14 and will post and send highlights after the webinar.
Loon Call Lake Welcome Book
You will note on the website that we have a new Welcome Book! It is going to be valuable for newcomers and oldtimers alike. Please have a look!
Again our thanks go to Vickie Hartog’s leadership in creating our new welcome book! A small group including Jim Hartog, Syd Bowcott, Henry DeCock and Margi, led by Vickie Hartog, developed this book late last summer
At the 2019 AGM information was provided about the value of planting trees and shrubs on waterfront properties/shorelines. If you are up to the cottage this spring and staying close to home rather than visiting with friends, please consider planting!!! Trees and shrubs are easily accessible and it is difficult to overemphasize their value.
The province of Quebec has legislated that there must be several metres of natural vegetation on shorelines. (not grass!)
