Why Belong to The Anstruther LakeCottagers’ Association?
www.anstrutherlake.com … Facebook: Anstruther Lake & Anstruther Lake Cottagers Association Pages.
As has been told over the many years the ALCA has been around (approximately 57), it is important to support Your Lake Association for many reasons.
Here are several:
Water Testing in July and again in August at 10 sites covering the entire Lake to make sure our ‘pristine’ water is kept healthy along with the Province’s “Lake Partner Program” testing for phosphorus and more extensive testing with Trent University in early August.
Navigation Lights are maintained and up-graded to reflect the latest technology and to help night-time boating be easier and safer.
Interaction with ALL levels of government to lobby on a variety of issues that occur on a regular basis (i.e. ALCA is a member of The Federation of Ontario Cottagers’ Association (FOCA) to leverage these issues and others on a large scale with the greater numbers of a larger Association.
Issues emerging with The Kawartha Highlands Signature Site Provincial Park(our entire Lake is in the KHPP) .
Local Township and County Issues involving waste management … support of the expanded Health Centre in Apsley … Library … Computer Library … Township Swim Program … Safe Boater Training Program. ALCA fosters a good relationship with the Township and dialogues to keep tax increases minimal.
The annual Lake Regatta in Aug. & Corn-Wiener Roast in Sept.
The ALCA website: www.anstrutherlake.com to keep everyone up-to-date on the Lake.
Your annual ALCA membership dues ($35.00) enable all this and more to happen. Liability Insurance the Association must carry is also an expense for every ‘non-profit’ volunteer organizations.
