Once again, we’re looking forward to enjoying the beauty of the lake and all that it has to offer. As you’ll recall, we devoted most of our time and energy to helping Swanville celebrate its big 200 year anniversary in 2018.
We’ve been doing some planning for next season and would greatly welcome input from our members. We’d like some fresh ideas for potential fund raisers, guest speakers and membership drives. We’d be interested in hearing what you want, instead of thinking that we know what would be of interest. We realize that there’s a lot of talent and vision among you and hope to draw from that wisdom. So far, we did come up with a viable plan for a silent auction in July as we’ve access to some interesting items to include. We’ve never attempted this so whatever information and organizational ideas that you might have would be considered.
Please feel free to contact me with your suggestions; I guarantee that we will carefully consider all suggestions and welcome your help.

It featured three or four varieties of omelets, sausage, bacon &’ham, blueberry muffins, juice, fruit and coffee or tea. Reservations were made and seating consisted of 12-15 people at three different times on Sunday morning. Patrons made a $15.00 donation to support our lake’s CBI Program to protect it from invasive plants.
It was highly successful due to the hard work of the aforementioned volunteers, with whom we could not be more proud.

Questions/answers regarding Lake/dam issues: Bruce Mailloux
As I am sure you are all painfully aware we are suffering a water level crisis. As the dam owners of the lake, it would seem that a lot of the blame is being shifted towards us. We would like to clarify a few things concerning the Swan Lake water level this year.
Our attempt at the house and garden tour was a big success this year thanks to the loyal, hard working members who contributed their time, gardens, boats and homes. They include the following folks: Pontoon captains, Dale Curtis, Blake Curtis, Paul Fyfe, Rob (who drove the Jordan’s), Lee Robinson. Also. the gardens and homes of Becky and Bruce Mailloux, Helen and Lee Robinson, Bob and Mary Ristino, Nancy and Bill Baxter and finally to Sharon Curtis, Katie Curtis and all members who cooked and served at their wonderful English Tea at their camp. All of this was laboriously organized by Peggy Stout and her entourage of helpers, including Carol Jordan, Nancy Baxter, Helen Robinson Sharon Curtis, Katie Curtis and Maggie Fyfe.
Thank you to all who contributed and made it a success for 2016!
