The summer edition of our newsletter ” The Extra Mile” was sent via email to all active members on July 8th. It is also posted in the member area of this site. Those that do not have email and require a paper copy, you should be receiving it shortly if you haven’t already.

Due to the Ontario Government’s continued changes to the COVID-19 regulations, our The Extra Mile Newsletter will be delayed again until the first week of July. At that point we will notify our members of the plans for our Annual General Meeting, which is currently scheduled for July 25, 2020.
Water Quality Update
Note that since 2011, the MECP (Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks) lab results have regularly exceeded the safe drinking level 1.5 µg/L, but they have NOT exceeded the Ontario safe recreational water level 20 µg/L. Swimming and other water sport activities should be avoided in areas where the blue-green algae bloom is visible. Past history shows that sample results from separate locations can be very different.
