Members of The Association,


Over the past few months, we have all been living through unprecedented times and COVID-19 has undoubtedly changed all of our lives.


Our Association’s first consideration is the safety and well-being of our community. We aim for our Summer events to be safe, fun and educational for all. As such, we are closely following the regulations and information being shared by the Ontario Provincial Government for major gatherings and community events.


Due to the restrictions outlined by the Province, we are sad to announce that both the Annual Picnic and CBRA Garage Sale are cancelled for Summer 2020.


This was a hard decision, as we look forward to hosting and seeing all our Members at these events each year. Due to this cancellation, we don’t feel it fair to ask our Members for the total due, as our costs for the year will be lower. We do plan to host a wonderful picnic and garage sale for Summer 2021, and will continue to cover basics costs for the year, such as insurance.


Therefore, the Executive Committee has decided to reduce the annual dues to only $10. This will cover our minimized costs and give us a head start to prepare for Summer 2021.


For your convenience, the dues can be paid through e-transfer to:, or via cheques made out to Jill Jenkins. (604 Bayport Blvd.Midland, Ontario. L4R 0G4)


Additionally, you may come by my cottage at 1663 Champlain Rd on Saturday July 4, 2020, where you will find me sitting at a booth at the top of my drive way, ready to chat (via social distance), collect Member Dues and update our Directory. Joining me will be the representative for our Golf group. This is an activity that is open to all Members!


We are also looking for new Committee Members! It’s an exciting opportunity to become more involved in your community and celebrate the history of this wonderful area. If you are interested or have any questions at all, please contact me directly at


To close, we hope you and your family are staying safe during this unusual time. We will miss you this summer, but we will be there celebrating with a bang for Summer 2021!

Dana Karnis, President
