Your new membership director, Derek Stevens will be looking for ways to continue to streamline the collection of dues. 2019/2020 is a new membership period and members are encouraged to choose the 2-year payment option, now $70.
Members will be able to renew online and e-transfer funds directly to our treasurer. (contact info below) If you would like to participate in the door to door follow up, let us know. We work hard to continue to have one of the highest percentage of Brandy Lake seasonal and year-round residents who are members of our lake association. Members are what make the Brandy Lake Association possible. The stronger our Association the stronger our voice as we advocate to protect our most precious resource, our lake and our lake community.
In the past number of years some residents have also chosen to be members of the Muskoka Lakes Association. They offer a small lakes associate membership for $50 annually. We currently benefit from a $30 reduction in our water testing fees for each associate membership. It is our responsibility to track these MLA members so if you renew directly with the MLA or on-line be sure to let our treasurer know.
The Social was, as always, most successful and will be held this summer on July 27th. Save the date and look forward to a great time. If you would like to host please email Daniela, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bring an appetizer to share and your beverage of choice. Water is supplied. It is a great opportunity to meet new neighbours and visit with all.
