Picnic and AGM
It’s almost time for another day of tradition and memory making at the OLRA Annual Picnic. Join us Sunday, August 2, 12:00 noon at Orr Lake Park for an afternoon to remember as you meet or reunite with neighbours and friends. Games and races provide fun for all ages, as well as scrapbook-worthy medals and ribbons, and great prizes too. We'll have the BBQ fired up and coolers stocked with refreshments at ridiculously reasonable prices. All OLRA members and their families are invited. Annual memberships will be available for the low cost of $10 per household, so if you haven't purchased yours yet don't miss this opportunity to enjoy the day, and reap all the year-long benefits too!
Get creative this week and enter the boat decorating contest. The theme this year is pirate ships, so break out the Jolly Roger and give it your all. Or perhaps your artistic talents lean more toward the musical. Put on your dancing shoes and enter the lip sync contest instead.
The following weekend, be sure to attend our Annual General Meeting at Orr Lake Golf Club Sunday, August at 1:00 pm. It’s your chance to hear what the OLRA has done for you during the year, and to voice your concerns. There are several executive positions up for election this year, and we are in desperate need of reliable, conscientious people to fill those roles. Please consider throwing your hat into the ring, or nominating someone that you believe would serve our community fairly and objectively. If you are unable to attend the meeting, you can still volunteer by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We realize that we ask for help each year, but it is especially important this year. Without this kind of assistance, it is unlikely that there will be enough resources for the OLRA to continue to be active in the coming year. We look forward to seeing you there.
We hope that you have been enjoying this beautiful summer, and spend the rest of it safely as you vacation and visit with family and friends.
