Dear LLPOA Members,
We hope this update finds you and your families well and safe during this seemingly endless pandemic. Despite all of the inherent obstacles, we have been working diligently to ensure our community continues to thrive and that our voices continue to be heard.
This year has provided us with many opportunities to contribute to the direction that our municipality Wentworth, the municipality of Wentworth North, as well as the MRC of Argenteuil are planning with respect to environmental protections and by-law changes. Board members of the LLPOA have either contributed to or assisted in meetings with officials and members of other lake and environmental organizations. We are encouraged by this new openness and spirit of collaboration.
Of particular interest is the fact that mid-January, the Township of Wentworth invited the LLPOA and other community organizations, to provide recommendations for by-law changes before the end of the month. View a summary of the LLPOA Board of Directors’ recommendations to the township posted on our website. Also, in response to two questions we submitted for the February 1 Council meeting, our Mayor confirmed that there will be a meeting/s with all community groups once our Councilors have had a chance to review the submissions. Again, this spirit of collaboration and openness is very encouraging.
LLPOA Board of Directors Updates
The LLPOA has also undergone some changes in the last several months. Our dedicated leader, Mary-Anne Armstrong, has, after 3 years, stepped down as President to focus on family responsibilities. We are eternally grateful to Mary-Anne for her courage and dedication in leading us through possibly the most difficult period in Lake Louisa’s history, as we combatted the development of a mega complex of hotels, golf course and then some.
Fortunate as we are, Tanis Trotman has graciously agreed to step up to the presidency from her role of vice-president. Tanis provides us with a wealth of expertise and resources and will lead us further towards our goal of ensuring our lake and rural community continues to thrive.
Subsequently, Isabel Rut has agreed to take on the role of vice-president, as well as maintaining her role as communications director.
Additionally, Karen Ott, who has been volunteering with the LLPOA to manage our website, has joined the LLPOA board as an interim director.
On behalf of the LLPOA board and our valuable members, we would like to congratulate and welcome those who have taken on their new roles.
We look forward to keeping you informed, and of course seeing you all in person before too long.
LLPOA Board of Directors
