May 2017 Newsletter

Greetings Everyone,

It has been quite cool and very rainy but as the saying goes, "April Showers Bring May Flowers" is appropriate for what we have experience the last few weeks. However, it won't take long before the temperatures start to warm up and we start into our summertime activities whether it be outdoor BBQ's, a round of golf, lawn bowling, preparing gardens, outdoor chores, or just taking it easy at home or at the cottage.

The club has several rentals coming up in May. Our first rental is the monthly Kawartha CAN Poker Tournament taking place on Sunday, May 7th. Doors open at 9:30 am and registration begins at 10:00 am.

Some of you may even want to drop by the curling club on Saturday, May 13th to see what treasures may be offered at the Humane Society's Yard Sale. Doors open at 8:30 am and close at 2:00 pm. Be prepared to get here early to not miss out on one or more of the many treasures. You might also want to drop by to stock up on baked goods as there is a bake sale as well.

Later in the month, the club will be hosting "Quilted Treasures" presented by the Lindsay Creative Quilters' Guild. On May 27th and 28th the doors will open at 10:00 am for the public to come in and enjoy the many quilt exhibits, observe various quilting demonstrations, visit the members sales boutique and tea room. There is a modest admission of $5.00 per day and I'm sure that you will not be disappointed.

Accessibility Update:

Just a note to bring folks up to date with regard to the proposed accessibility project. We have had meetings with both Wilcox Architects Inc. and Carbon Contracting Inc. and we have discussed the possibility of completing the project in phases as we do not have the funds required to complete the project all at once. We are meeting again in the very near future to discuss the project phases and to get up to date budget costs. I will inform you of more details as they become available.
