A Message from the WTRA President: 2016 Spring Newsletter

Seeking New WTRA Board Members

Secretary-Treasurer Corina Zechel is interested in passing on one or both of her jobs. If you are keen to join the WTRA executive, please contact Corina, John or Jackie, using the e-mail contacts below. Time commitment is minimal and the minimum term is two years.

We would like to give thanks to Frank Jasek who will once again handle the filing of the WTRA tax return.

Social Note

Mardell Brown, of Summit, died in December 2015. She was one of the original cottagers and will be missed.

Road Condition

Our roads are very soft in the spring, and have become damaged by large trucks coming in. Please do not order material requiring a large truck or drive one yourself until at least mid-May when the roads have had a chance to dry out. If for some reason such action is unavoidable, you are responsible for correcting any resulting ruts or other damage.

Road Maintenance

Our Road Chair, Jackie is working on an agreement to contract out the maintenance of the road. Fees will remain the same for this year.

Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Please come to the WTRA’s AGM on SATURDAY, MAY 21st AT 10AM in the community room at the Dorset Lions’ Camp, entrance off Kawagama Lake Rd (turn left on KLR from White Trout).   Please find the minutes from the 2015 AGM by clicking here

Road Work Bee

As usual there will be a road work bee this summer. This is a meet/re-meet your neighbours opportunity during which time we improve road visibility and safety by clearing the culverts and pruning the smaller branches and weeds back from the road. We will meet at the gravel pit at 9:30AM on SATURDAY JULY 16th. Bring gloves, work tools and bug spray.
