Your Raven Lake Cottagers Association, thatís who!

And to continue to be a potent force, the RLCA needs YOU! Although we'd love to have you volunteer with us, we understand if you cannot find the time. What we cannot understand, however, is why anyone would decide not to support the RLCA by joining.

For your $25 membership, you will:

    1. enable your association to continue the above work
    2. facilitate the building of a floating dock for Regatta and Corn Roast use
    3. assist cottagers in the upcoming 9-1-1 implementation program
    4. insure the organization and its members in all its activities
    5. allow Raven Lake to be heard provincially through membership in FOCA, WRAFT and other organizations

We are now incorporated under the laws of Ontario - a move which has given us more political clout - and we have a reworked Constitution that more than ever guarantees your Association is ready and able to serve the Raven Lake community.

Please, this year, make it a top cottage priority to buy and maintain a membership in your RLCA. Keep the Association strong, and help us make Raven Lake better for everyone.

- Harry Wilson, President
