Best AGM Ever
Updated August 27, 2015
Thanks to all of our members who were able to come to this year’s Annual General Meeting at Solid Comfort Fish Club on August 2. According to many who were there, it was the most fun AGM we have had in years. Part of the thanks for this has to go to our special guest Dr. Françoise Noël, who gave a fascinating talk on the modern history of Lake Nipissing and the Upper French River, including the rise of cottaging and tourism in general. After the meeting, Dr. Noël made arrangements to have more of her books (NIPISSING – Historic Waterway, Wilderness Playground) available for sale at the store at Riverview.
Thanks also to Chief Denis Restoule of Dokis First Nation for spending time with us and providing an update on the impressive range of activities now underway in that community. This, of course, is Chief Denise’s final term and all wished her very well. Thanks, too, to Jeff Hamilton for making this year’s photo contest so entertaining. It was great to see so many entries this year and congratulations again to winners and to all participants.
And, finally, a most heartfelt thanks from all of us to the Solid Comfort Fishing Club. Club President Joe Ray and the Club members who were present took special care to make this a memorable event for us, including assisting with boats, setting us up in the lovely main dining hall, providing delicious snacks, and even offering a tour of the property. All of those in attendance (over 75) appreciated the warm welcome and the opportunity to become more familiar with this very stunning and historic spot.
