A note was just sent to our membership announcing the upcoming dates for our Annual Meeting and FUN Day. These can always be found in the side bar of the website.
Our Annual Meeting will be held on Saturday July 21st at #115 Star Lake Woods Road
Our FUN Day will be held on the August long weekend, Saturday August 4th (Rain Date August 5th) at #110 Star Lake Woods Road
SAFE QUIET LAKES
We would like to remind cottagers to be aware of their wake when boating. Star Lake Woods Association recommends the Safe Quiet Lakes guide of: “SLOW DOWN, BOW DOWN”. Near shore (within 30m) speed should be a maximum of 10km/h to avoid large wake.
Please see the following two links:
WATER QUALITY TESTING
Our water testing program with the MLA, has begun. If anyone is a member of the MLA, please let us know as we get a discount for each member of our association who has joined. The cost is $120 annually, which includes their Advantage Card, giving you discounts at participating retailers.
You can see the results, in our post, here.
ANNUAL MEETING AGENDA
Below is the proposed Agenda for the Annual Meeting:
Agreement to the By-Laws Constitution *(See Funds Allocation Policy below)
Winter Roads** See note below
** It is proposed that the winter road become an official part of the Star Lake Woods Association. The fee structure would remain the same, but would run through the SLWA account and have separate book keeping. As this is a change in our Constitution, there will need to be a vote on this, which we will do by email, in the weeks following the meeting.
* the agreement to be added to the By-Laws will be as follows:
Funds Allocation Policy
Money collected from the members of the Star Lake Woods Association shall be kept in three separate (booking keeping) accounts for:
a) Star Lake Woods Rd/Hill Top Lane’s remaining funds
b) Morningside Drive’s remaining funds
c) Common expenses, including the common road to the “Y”, Water Testing, Social Events, Administration Fees, etc. and Reserve Fund Common Road (suggest a balance kept of $4000, 30% from Morningside, and 70% from Star Lake Woods/Hill Top)
The treasurer will work with the road manager to advise how much money is available for use on each section of road.
The road manager will work with the President and Vice Presidents from each side to decide on any projects to be done on a yearly basis.
A report from our Treasurer was also included with the email

Happy Spring Everyone,
The road is flooded on Morningside Drive, where it normally floods. The water has definitely gone down since last week, but there is still water covering the road from #31 to past #33. We’re not sure how deep it is, but you could probably get through with a 4 wheel drive truck. This picture was taken while standing in 2 inches of water about half way to #31 driveway:
