Current pronouncements in force in Quebec as of June 17,
2020 do not permit organized gatherings of more than 10
people (from a maximum of 3 households). Although outside
gatherings under the current rules do allow up to 50 people
to be gathered in a public place (which the lake is not), there
is no way the Association could enforce distancing and
control the number of people to 50 for our traditional
Canada Day Parade. Accordingly, the Board decided to
cancel the Association’s parade/judging of best decorated
boats and related trophies. We believe that there will still be
members who decide to make their way onto the water at
some time during the day to celebrate Canada Day and
proudly show our colours and flag, each respecting
distancing and maximum of 10 gathering rules. There will
simply not be any organized pattern to this and people will
figure out their own way to celebrate safely under the
Quebec Health rules in place.
We are advised that Mike Avon (south end of the lake at
Mike Avon’s dock) will initiate a personal fireworks display
on his property to take place on Saturday July 4 at about
9:30 p.m. (dark). If you wish to observe same from the lake,
please be careful and drive slowly when entering and leaving
the viewing area, and respect nighttime boating rules. Rain
date for this will be July 5.
