We have taken on the task of promoting and supporting all the social activities that are not directly related to the golf course…and there are many., says president Maurice Pilon in his 2011 Fall Newsletter. The wonderful website that was developed by Jacques Pigeon will serve as our main tool for communications and we hope that you will consult it more and more frequently. We want to help the organizers of the different activities to reach more residents and, de facto, create stronger social bonds within the community.
I want, in your name, to thank especially Robert Percy for the efforts he has personally given to make the kayaking events (SPANK) such a great success on its second year.
Some of the activities that we will support and promote are:
The Walking Club
The Friday Ski Club (downhill)
The Curling Group
The kayaking (SPANK)
The painting group
The Glee Club
Green Day, etc…
Then we also want to discuss the security issues that face our community. We think this important enough, that the board has created an ‘ad hoc ‘committee which will be headed by Sheryl Caron. The members will meet during the winter and come up with proposals to help improve the general security in our area. You will be kept informed.
We will also revive a tradition which the association used to have: honouring a resident who has contributed in a special way to the bettering of the community.
This year Black lake became the privileged home of 1000 speckled trout and our “chief fishing officer” (Rod) would love to hear from anyone lucky enough to catch some… regarding their size, etc…
