What We DoThe Jack’s Lake Association has been a proactive lake association since 1950! Many people feel that anyone using Jack’s Lake should be a member of the Jack’s Lake Association (JLA), that in fact we have a community obligation to join. This is undoubtedly because we all benefit from the Association’s lake stewardship, including, but not limited to the following:
- The buoys marking underwater hazards and the flashing markers in the main channels
- The ever- ready serviced fire pumps
- The annual JLA sponsored Regatta enjoyed free of charge by members and their immediate family (non-members pay a nominal fee)
- The very popular and informative Association magazine mailed to your home twice annually
- The annual Kids Fishing Derby sponsored by Bob Izumi’s Kids, Cops, and Canadian Tire organization, hosted by the JLA Fisheries Committee
- The Hot Dog Social where members meet new and old friends
- The swimming lessons, taught on the lake, have been brought back
- The environmental projects like a Wetlands Assessment and a Benthic (bug) Study are financed by the JLA to monitor and protect water quality
- JLA is a paid and involved member of the Coalition for Equitable Waterflow for reservoir lakes in the Haliburton and Kawartha Lakes area. We work with government agencies to maintain appropriate water levels throughout the season
- The challenge by the JLA to planned logging around the lake has achieved better protection from the visual and environmental effects
- The advocacy for waterfront property owners with all three levels of government when we need a collective voice. JLA keeps current with the issues facing other lake associations through its paid membership in the Federation of Ontario Cottagers’ Associations (FOCA), and the umbrella organizations of lake associations in North Kawartha and Havelock-Belmont-Methuen.
We trust you agree the $50 annual membership fee is exceptional value protecting your investment, Jack’s Lake and your enjoyment of this beautiful lakeside community.
