Happy Summer everyone!


Your SDRA board has been busy in the last little while, so this is a bigger update than usual. Please read all the way through to ensure that you don’t miss anything important.


June 24, 11:00 a.m.-  the Land O’ Lakes Garden Club is having a Canada 150th celebration at the Cloyne Pioneer Museum grounds. There will be a smudging ceremony, visiting dignitaries, a community choir, local musicians, a BBQ, and a dedication of the new re-planted parkland.


July 1 - Canada Day Boat Parade and Dock Decorating contest. The boat parade will begin at 11:00 a.m. at the mouth of Sheldrake and Ron Nowell will be leading. Decorations should be an “I Am Canadian” theme, and we need YOU to send in the pictures of your decorations (of dock and/or boat). We will select the best dock and the best boat and announce the winners at the AGM. Please send in all pictures by Monday, July 3, at noon. You can email the pictures to info@skootamatta.ca.


July 2, 1:00-4:00 p.m. - Memorial for Karl Maier at Nancy Kallina’s cottage. On May 12th we lost Karl Maier in his 91st year. Karl owned two successive properties on Skootamatta Lake from 1964 until 2002.  He was an avid fisher, hunter, and painter.  He was fondly regarded by many, and was often seen fishing with his wife Luise, and known for telling “big fish” tales. A modest memorial will be held to remember Karl, hosted by his daughter Becky and the Kallina family.  All those who knew Karl are welcome.
