The Remi Lake Cottagers Association has new life thanks to a last ditch effort to re-invigorate the organization earlier this month.

 

With all former executive members stepping down, no new board of directors, and a lack of new members, the Association was in dire straits and facing dissolution.


The Cottage Owners' Association is responsible for the buoy system on the lake marking the dangerous rocks, various improvements in lighting and roads, signage, welcome baskets to new owners, and more.

 

Every year we meet with the Moonbeam council with a list of items that we would like to see or have done around the Remi Lake area,” former Association Secretary, Nilol Tremblay said. “Our main priority is our buoy system on Remi Lake that marks the dangerous rocks,” she said. “If we fold, there will be no more buoys on Remi Lake”.

 

Joining the executive are Denis Bérubé (President), Brian “Punch” Pye (Vice-President), Shari Rusnak (Secretary), Monique Simpson (Tresurer), and directors Gretchen Morgan, Randy Caas, Dana McIntyre, Suzanne Guertin and Carole Caas. Bob Guertin is the director remaining from last year’s executive.
