Have questions about blue-green algae?

Kawartha Protect Our Water (KPOW) is having a public information meeting on Thursday, July 19th at the Bocaygeon Service Centre to discuss this topic of blue-green algae in our lake.

The meeting gets underway at 7 p.m.

More information can be found at http://www.mykawartha.com/community/article/1400856–meeting-offers-insight-into-algae-cause-and-cures OR http://www.kpow.info/

The event features Trent University eco-researcher Colleen Middleton who will help people become familiar with some of the algae common to the area – of which not all of it is harmful – and learn how simple changes can have an impact on their growth.

The meeting will also feature discussions on the proposed governmental changes to the Trent-Severn Waterway and the implications with Brian Hunt of Voices for the Trent. People are invited to bring their questions and concerns.

Sailing Club Celebration – July 14th!

Dear Friends, Family and Neighbours of the Sturgeon Lake Sailing Club,

Please join us for cocktails in celebration of our newly constructed, and nearly completed, exciting new building and the wonderful community that made it possible!

When:  Saturday, July 14th from 7:00 to 8:30p.m.
(The weekly Friday evening junior club dance will be moved to Saturday and held at the same time in the “old” building in order to accommodate childcare)

Where: S.L.S.C.’s New Building

There’ll be an open wine & beer bar, and some fabulous finger foods.

These festivities will be immediately followed by a good ole fashioned Sailing Club Dance for grown-­ups. So polish up your boogie shoes and prepare to bust a move (and hopefully nothing else) to a great selection of your favourite S.L.S.C. dance tunes!

Dress: Your best tight white suit or polyester mini dress. Failing that, comfortable and casual!

Donations to the “Building Fund” will be gratefully accepted.

We’re looking forward to seeing you!
