Arnie reported that he had attended a recent meeting of the NBALA. The application for an Environmental Trust Fund grant has been approved and he will have further details to provide at our next meeting.
Dan will be taking over the water testing on the lake this year. The data logger will be going in soon..
Arnie stated that Miramichi Lake is trying to form an association and would like to join the NBALA.
As the NBALA now has a boat pressure washer and trailer, it is in the process of becoming an incorporation. In order to own equipment, you have to be incorporated.
Yoho has struck a deal with Nicholson’s Waste Management to pump out septic systems 2 times/year at a reduced rate. Mike suggested that this be added to the agenda for the Annual General Meeting (AGM).All agreed.
Ken has only heard from 1 team captain. Claude has some information to distribute to people.
Ken & Aunden have been working on obtaining ads for the directory. Megan will put a post on Facebook stating that we are looking for ads.
Ken needs help with the membership campaign such as the newsletter and membership cards. Megan suggested setting up a Membership Committee and will see if she can get volunteers.
Ken stated that we are about to lose our recycle pickup as it did not get collected for 2 months as the rules were not being observed. If anyone has any ideas how we can save this service, he would like you to pass them on to him.

Andy looked on the Dept. of Natural Resources site and there have been no updates.
Ken asked about final cleanup of the new section of trail along Davidson Brook. Megan reported that Vance Jeffries will be able to get to it before long. Ken will help him.
Ken has dock sections for a crossing at the west end of the lake.
Date for cleaning out the trail along the lake is Saturday, May 29.
Ken said that the signs for Gillis, Loon, Clark and Scott Lanes have been installed.
The road has been graded. There are some culverts to be installed later on.
A discussion took place about whether gravel or crushed rock should be used on the road. The consensus was that there is no problem with having gravel on the road
Andy suggested that we have a cleanup day to pick up garbage and recyclables along the sides of the road. Since Aunden already does this along the Davidson Lake Road, it was decided to include that road as well. Megan thought it would be a good activity for friends and families to get involved and the date of Saturday, June 26 was picked as the kids will be out of school. Andy & Aunden will organize.
The next DLA Bd. of Directors’ Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 10, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. and will be a Zoom meeting.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:35 p.m.
