Evening on the Water

Evening on the Water

Its hard to believe but August is just around the corner!  Where has the month gone? Its been great to see so many people out enjoying swimming, water sports and boats.  We’re still extremely busy which is a good thing this time of year….how many more weeks until winter again?? :)

Tomorrow is a big day here with the MDCA annual regatta out at the point!  Hopefully the weather holds up and everyone can get out and enjoy the community festivities.
Other upcoming events include the annual fireworks on Mississagua Lake this year on August 2nd, the Beaver Lake regatta on August 2nd and the Hovercraft Demo on August 23rd.
Lori is also running her last session of swimming lessons for the summer starting on Tuesday.  She is also going to run a bronze medallion/bronze cross course in the afternoons so for all the older kids out there thinking about life-guarding, its a great opportunity to get a step in the process completed and meet new kids up here.

Highlight of the DayEvery weekday, Sue arrives around 10:30 and every day at 10:30 before the truck is even in park, Arcade is waiting patiently in the driveway for his daily treat with Stormy and Lunker not far behind him!

Despite a good soaking Sunday morning it was a pretty fantastic weekend!
The past 2 weeks have shown us a pretty good start to summer so far.  Swimming lessons looked (and sounded) quite busy each morning and the girls in the store looked forward to the end of each lesson to see how many candies they could hand out.
We welcomed Heather back from her South African shark adventures and she has lots of neat stories and pictures to share.  What an amazing experience!
Our summer staff is back in full swing and we have welcomed 2 new faces to the crew this year.  Keri, who many of you may have already met, has joined Alex, Claire and Anne on the gas docks for the summer, and Kris has been hard at work in the yard each week keeping things looking good around here.
Heather and Shawna have gotten the summer colouring contest up and running for the second summer now so don’t forget to bring the kids by to get their rainy day entertainment!  We’ve decided to add a bit of a twist to it.  The girls have picked a local children’s charity called Five Counties Children’s Centre and what they are hoping is that kids who want to enter the colouring contest will make a donation, even something as simple as leftover candy money.  At the end of the summer, all of the donations will go to Five Counties in Peterborough from the kids up here.

Upcoming events:
Session 2 of Swimming Lessons – July 15-25 (not too late to register for all or part of the session)
Session 3 of Swimming Lessons – July 29-Aug 8
Fireworks – Saturday, August 2nd on Mississagua Lake
Beaver Lake Regatta – Saturday, August 2nd
Hovercraft Demo – Saturday, August 23rd, Little Gull Marina

Boat Delivery supervisors

Boat Delivery supervisors

Summer has arrived….almost!  In just a couple short hours, the kids will be out of school and ready to stir up some trou…fun for the next 2 months!  And we all know that the true start to summer isn’t June 21st but rather the day the kids get out of school.  The arrival of summer means lots of things will be happening to keep on the lookout for.

To start off the summer Lori Harper will be here on Saturday from 9:30-10:30am.  Feel free to stop by and chat about swimming lessons or register in person.  You can also contact her via email or phone regarding swimming lessons or getting your boating licence this summer.  Lessons can be tailored for adults and kids of all ages and levels and its a great way to meet other kids on the lakes.

Bass season opens tomorrow and this is just another reminder that we no longer sell fishing and hunting licenses here but you can get them online.

This summer will also see One Big Day at the Community Center on July 19th, a number of regattas around the lakes (dates TBA), Catchacoma Marina’s fishing derby, and many other exciting events.

Our crew here is working hard to keep those boats hitting the water and the gentlemen in today’s picture are over-seeing the delivery crew to make sure your boats arrive on your dock in tip-top shape.

Finally, the official arrival of summer also means that we are now open from 8am-8pm every day.  We will be here to assist you with any of your cottaging needs, or simply to provide that much needed ice cream treat on the hot summer days that we hope keep on comin.

Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing everyone out enjoying this fantastic weather!
