2017 Annual General Meeting

Each year our Annual General Meeting focuses on a specific community on Lake of Bays and heritage plaques are awarded to the owners of historically significant buildings in that community. This year we will be featuring the history and built heritage of Austin Lane. A video of the history will be shown at the meeting and will be available for purchase at the meeting as well printed material about Austin Lane. The meeting will be held at the historic Bethune United Church in Baysville on Saturday August 19th at 11 a.m.

 View the videos documenting the community history of Clovelly, Seabreeze, Dwight Beach Lane, Scott's Boathouse Road, Dorset and Bigwin View Lane.
