The picnic is for all MLPOA Members and their families. This event will run from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., at the M.N.R. boat launch site on Judge Jordan Road. We will be running games, miniputt, fishpond and bean bag toss and more from 2:30 to 4:30 followed by the “Awards Ceremony” and bar-b-que supper at 5 p.m. of sliced beef or turkey on a bun, corn on the cob and hot dogs. If you are able to help in the running of games, site preparation, serving of food or have any ideas about who might wish to serenade us with their musical talents, contact Jeanne Anthon at 705-286-3756 or email

Those interested in participating in the annual Lake Swim must register at 1 p.m. at southwest corner of Mountain Lake Denyer’s property. The race ends at the picnic site. Race starts at 1:30 p.m. As in past years, if there is interest, a short lake swim will take place immediately following the long swim. ALL REGISTERED SWIMMERS MUST HAVE THEIR OWN GUIDE BOAT AS REQUIRED BY OUR INSURERS for the long distance swim. There will be no exceptions. Call Rick for more details at 705-340-2083. This event is also a great way to meet fellow cottagers, especially if you are new to the lake. As in past years, cottagers who missed the opportunity to pay for their memberships at the Annual General Meeting, or are new to the lake, may pay their membership dues at the picnic. We also accept donations to offset the extra cost for people who happen to have cottage guests up for the weekend.
