The Davidson Lake Association met this week to start planning for the upcoming year. To help us in these efforts, we’re hoping you could take a few minutes to complete this survey. Thank you in advance for taking the time to let us know your opinions and suggestions!
EXCITING NEWS!! Thank you to past president Ken Donald and Andy Morton for working with the provincial government, and receiving approval, to have the tract of land stretching from Loon Lane to the outlet and back to Route 2 now identified as a Nature Legacy protected area. This means that this area cannot be developed and can only be used for hiking and recreational use. This will help ensure the ongoing health of our lake for many years to come. We appreciate this fantastic effort for our community!
Our annual fundraiser is now underway. I hope many of you have been visited by our committee members and received one of our “Welcome to Summer” pamphlets. If not, please find one attached. This year, your kind donations will help us start the Invasive Plant Patrol, maintain our membership with the NBALA as well as continue to maintain our roads and garbage shed. They’re also going towards some of our community events, the first being this Saturday at Sandy Cove Bible Camp where there will be a draw for door prizes for everyone that’s contributed to date. If you would like to donate, you can send an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org or directly to one of our executive. This year, your donation counts towards your membership, so you should only be visited once . If you’d like to wait to donate at the hotdog social, no problem, we will have receipt books there. Looking forward to seeing everyone, and thank you so much for helping keep our lake safe for the community!
Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday, August 21st at 11:00am the Dumfries Firehall. For those that would like to attend but cannot be there in person, please email email@example.com and we will be happy to provide you with a zoom login for this session. Hope to see you there!
Please see attached notice from the NBALA Lake Association outlining an opportunity for our youth to get involved in our lake environmental efforts by asking them to contribute a creative design project that involves maintaining lake health.5 project proposals and individuals who are chosen will be provided compensation in exchange for their design as a part of our “Youth Ambassadorship” program. Interested individuals are asked to contact Briana Cowie (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 5th with their project ideas. Details are enclosed in the attached announcement. Good luck to everyone that participates! Looking forward to all of your creative ideas
As indicated in our previous post, here is the presentation delivered at our Annual General Meeting held July 13, 2019. Included in it, is the proposed solution that will allow us to keep our lake clean, safe and able to be enjoyed for many generations to come. Please take the time to read through, and send any questions or provide your support by sending an email to: email@example.com , or using the ‘contact’ function on this website.
Your support and participation is needed and appreciated!
As many of you recall, during the summer of 2017, our water levels became dangerously low. This was caused by the loss of the beaver dam and beaver population in the outlet, which had been in place for over two decades, combined with extremely high temperatures. At that time, we discussed residents’ concerns regarding this situation at our Annual General Meeting and there was unanimous support to immediately seek out and implement a solution to address the situation. A work group was struck and based on research and expert advice, a temporary water leveler was installed. This has helped immensely with keeping our water clean and safe and our fish and plant habitats exactly as they should be.
Over the past several months, a long term solution to repair the old beaver structure has been designed in close collaboration with Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Department of Environment, Engineers and other lakes in the area. The design includes the addition of an integrated fish way to ensure that our fish population remains unchanged. We will be presenting this solution at our AGM on July 13th and encourage everyone to attend to ask any questions they may have and hopefully support this very important initiative. If you are unable to attend the AGM, the presentation and meeting minutes will be shared after the meeting on this website where there will also be a mechanism to ask questions and share comments and/or concerns.
Thank you everyone for your continued support of your Lake Association and your efforts to keep our lake clean, safe and stable for the many generations to come.
Your Lake Association

Hi Folks – Happy New Year to you all! As per previous years, we’re starting the guesses on when the ice will fully melt out of the lake. By way of ‘comment’ below, provide us with your best guess. Deadline for your guess is March 31, rules as follows:
- One guess per person
- Dates are on a first come first serve basis, no duplication will be accepted
- Ice is considered “out” when the balck float in front of Ken Donald’s home is free of ice or is moved by the ice.
Good luck everybody 🙂
