Video review of HLCA 2018
In order to manage the questions and answers, as it can be very challenging in a large zoom meeting, we are asking for questions in advance for your HLCA Board and also for the Mayor. Andrea will answer the questions as part of her remarks and the HLCA will answer the questions in writing and provide the questions and answers as part of the meeting package prior to the meeting. The deadline for questions is June 1st.
If you are interested in being a Board member please let Brent know (email@example.com) prior to the meeting as we will be putting forward a slate. Please consider getting involved.
Canada Day Fireworks: UPDATE - The Fireworks are set to go Saturday July 31st at dusk! Note: dusk is approximately 8:45 PM
Please note that the public beach will be closed at 3pm for the commercial fireworks set up as per the permit regulations issued by the Fire Marshall of Dysart et al.
Viewing the fireworks will not be permitted from the public beach. Markers will be deployed in the water that will determine the viewing area for boats. See Map
We are looking for a volunteer to patrol the beach to make sure that the viewing limits at the public beach are maintained. If you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Membership Drive Kick Off – March 31, 2021
Just this week HLCA kicked of the 2021 membership drive. Membership letters have been sent out to 625 property owners on Haliburton, Oblong and Ross Lakes. Last year was very successful. Our membership levels are about 390, currently membership is about 62% of the lake, paying 100% of the benefits to all property owners.
The HLCA does many, many beneficial things for the lake community. When you decide whether or not to join please imagine what our community would be like without the services, events, and advocacy the HLCA has to offer. Can you picture what it would be like without the navigation markers no longer placed and replaced throughout the boating season, the boat ramps not maintained or gone? Can you picture cancellation of the Canada Day Fireworks, or the Regatta festival, or even the loss of the ability to offer swimming lessons to our children, plus mid week children’s activities? What if there was the loss of ongoing communications and advocacy on many issues such as environmental, roads and the landfill? Did you know very few lake associations have their own hall for association needs?
What is offered by the HLCA cannot be replaced by government services. It is very much in the interest of every property owner on Haliburton, Oblong and Ross Lakes to be a member of the Lake Association for the nominal fee. A healthy, vibrant, vocal Lake Association adds safety, convenience, and property value to every property on the Lakes, just ask a real estate agent.

Closing up the cottage in the fall is an important task for every cabin owner. Here is a good checklist to help you winterize the cabin.
Our biggest 2017 initiative was the shoreline assessment program lead by the Coalition of Haliburton Property Owners Associations (CHA).
Almost 625 shoreline properties were assessed in May and into June. You should have received your private personal shoreline assessments. If you did not receive your confidential copy of your shoreline assessment, please contact President@haliburtonlake.com
