Don’t miss the fun next year! Everyone welcome to join or watch and visit with your lake neighbours
For those who don’t know where The Glen is, it is at the end of Lakeview Trail off Peterson Rd. (Black Sturgeon Estates Road)

Boat Speeds and Wakes
Boat speeds and wakes near shore, docks and moored boats have been creeping up. A recent e-mail from the Association reminds cottagers of lake etiquette and to boat safely and be considerate of the shoreline, specifically peoples’ docks and boats. Don’t drive close to shore unless you have to and if you do: No Wake. Keep an eye out for swimmers and kayakers as there have been close calls reported. There has been quite a flurry of comments on this subject on our Facebook page.
Also, be warned that Conservation Officers have been on the lake recently and they are checking boats for safety gear, boating and fishing licences and drinking.
