The Board of the Association for the Protection of Lake Lyster (APPLL)
• The Association regularly reminds its contacts with the municipality and the MRC of the importance of keeping in mind the ability of the lake to support residential and resort development. Everyone can appreciate the positive and negative sides of development, but the lake has already lost many natural characteristics that made it the jewel that we know. Let's try to preserve as much as we can for future generations.

• Usually the Annual General Meeting is scheduled for early July. This year, we are organizing the AGM for October 14th. Please put this date in your calendar.
• The Association has a record number of members, over 200. Membership in the Association plays a dual role; on the one hand it gives us representation and credibility and, on the other hand, helps to ensure a reliable source of funding. Traditionally, annual membership begins in July and ends in June of the following year. You can now renew your membership by following the instructions below. We strongly recommend using Interac e-Transfer to do this. It's simple, efficient and secure, and it also makes our financial management and that of the members' files much easier. Obviously if you have already renewed your membership between last January and today, please disregard this reminder.
• You have surely noticed that southern Quebec has had a very dry start in the month of May. Since Baldwin’s Mills is a forest environment, caution with all fires is paramount for our safety and that of our property. You can consult the SOPFEU
