In September 2005, with the next election in sight, a group of people met to discuss the possibility of setting up a lake association. From this meeting was born a founding committee with the mandate to organize and plan, during the winter, the creation of the Association. Our first general assembly was held in June 2006. We elected various leaders, and we adopted the by-laws of the Association. At this first meeting, the members were able to discuss the questions and priorities that preoccupied them at the start of this summer. Following this meeting, as well as subsequent meetings, committees, to which members could join, were formed and committee meetings were held. The reports and recommendations of these committees are presented at the annual general meetings. The Association consists of a group of paying members of 82 members, representing 151 people.
