Annual General Meeting

Mark your calendars for the 2024 AGM starting at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, July 13. Dave Mason will once again graciously host the AGM at Lakeview, 224 South Papineau Lake Road. The AGM is an opportunity for Association members to ask questions of the executive, raise concerns, and provide direct input on Association priorities. We plan to have guest speakers from our local Hastings Highlands community. We’ll fill you in on all that later..

Meet and Greet

As they say, “business before pleasure”. Immediately after the AGM at Lakeview, rain or shine, join other PLCA members and your Board of Directors for the annual 2024 President’s Meet ‘n’ Greet Wine & Cheese. Please make some time for the AGM and then take some social time afterwards. The Wine & Cheese usually starts at 2:00pm, …or whenever the AGM ends.


I daresay the 2023 Annual Regatta was one of the best in recent memory. We had a spectacular showing at the Raffle Table thanks to the hard work of Vera Gunn who led the Raffle, and Carey Mollenhauer who assisted. 

Between the Raffle and the new clothing created by Karen Pennington’s StickerUpSigns we raised over $4000! A lot of the proceeds went to cover the cost of the new clothing and ribbons and medals, but overall it helped us reach our goal of donating $500 to the Bancroft Food Bank, The Maynooth Library, and the BASC Wonders of Wetlands program.

Of course the Regatta is only made possible by the numerous volunteers and sponsors. We had over 100 items donated to the raffle by residents and businesses!

Thanks so much to our volunteers: Vera Gunn, Carey Mollenhauer, Candace Bristow, Melissa Down, Ricky Bobby, Lesia Oughtred, Mark Trypuc, JD Baetz, Colter Cranston, Mitchell Needham, Kevin Cranston, Steve & Andrea Carroll, Karin Martin, Troy Dumolin, Shannon Needham, Terri Pamenter, Cam Clements, Lesly Mason, Rebecca & Anita Daniels, Dody Ferber, Geoff Hopkins, James Fowler, Janine McClintock, Jon Daniels, Rick Kopfeistner, Tom Potter, Dave Mason, Karen Pennings, and all those that jumped in on the day of the Regatta to help me out. Your support and help is so very appreciated.

Corn Roast

After organizing the “End of Summer” corn roast for many, many years, Steve Carroll has stepped down, having run his last roast in 2023. If you’re a fan of the event and you’d like to see the tradition continue, please consider taking the lead to organize it this year. Steve is sure to share his secrets of success. Please contact Fiona if you’re interested.

Many, many thanks to Steve for running so many successful and delicious corn roasts in past years.
