Annual General Meeting 2021
THE Baptiste Lake Association will hold a limited AGM on August 14 at 10:00 AM at St Mathews Church in Baptiste Village to meet the minimum legal obligations of our organization to accomplish the following:

1. Approve the Minutes of our 2020 AGM posted on the BLA website on the Meetings page.
2. President’s report
3. Receive and approve our Financial Statements for the fiscal year ending 2021/03/31
4. A resolution to exempt the BLA from a requirement for audited financial statements
5. The election of the directors.

Hard copies of each of these documents are available at the meeting and by email upon request.

A copy of the agenda for the upcoming AGM meeting is posted on the Meetings page.

In order to attend the meeting you must be a paid up member of the BLA. Instructions for renewing your membership, if it has expired, are located on the Membership page.

Attendance in person by BLA members will be limited in accordance with COVID19 best practices. Weather permitting, the meeting will be held outdoors on the church grounds (limit 100 people). Members are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs as no seating is available. If the meeting is indoors due to inclimate weather, the limit is 25 people. Masks must be worn if indoors.

If you do not plan to attend the meeting, you may delegate a board member or any member in good standing to act as your proxy at the meeting. The Proxy form is also available on the Meetings page.

No matters of policy or planning will be addressed. Our limited purpose is to achieve the five legal requirements for 2021 without risking the health of anyone.

Any person having policy or planning or other issues at any time in 2021/22 is invited and encouraged to contact any member of the board and we will attempt to address the issue.

Dock End Food Drive, August 21st
We are going to follow through with a suggestion kindly offered by one of our members at large and hold a dock end food drive, this August 21st. August 22nd will be our rain date.

We hope you will consider joining in and contributing non-perishable food items to help stock the Bancroft Food Bank.

You can simply leave your donation at the end of your dock by 4pm and call
613-723-0162 to tell us where you are.

There will also be drop off points on two pontoon boats anchored near the Government Docks and in Lavallee Bay with banners to help identify them. Availability times will be posted on the web site on this page closer to the event date.

We would welcome volunteers to go pick up the food from people’s docks. Please call the number above if you are interested.

We will tally the donations and let you know how we do.

Many thanks in advance,
The Baptiste Lake Association
