Mississippi Lakes Association Goes Social
These days when you hear the word ‘social’ it’s always assumed to mean some kind of online app that has to do with electronic media. Rarely does it involve face to face human contact. The MLA will change that in 2017. Sure, we built a lake plan, ran an extensive shoreline improvement program, sample water quality every year, install hazard markers in the lake every summer, built a new website with an online magazine BUT now we want to get social. Really social!
In the summer of Canada’s 150th birthday, the MLA (est. 1944!) wants to revive human social contact as one of our key objectives. We have many ideas… a flotilla, a fashion show, paddle boarding events, strawberry social (for starters!) in addition to our typical activities like counting loons and invasive species. But then again, I bet you have ideas about how to celebrate our wonderful life here on the mighty Mississippi!
Why don’t you share them with us? Are you interested in getting involved? Reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are waiting to hear from you!
Canada 150 Celebrations in our Community

Around Mississippi Lake there are many Private Road Associations who maintain their access roads and organize community and social events during the cottage season. Annual General Meetings, pot luck suppers and mini-regattas bring residents together to socialize and celebrate our lake lifestyle. If your Association has a forthcoming event, drop us a line and we'll post it here.
Drop in to the Carleton Place-Beckwith Heritage Museum at 267 Edmund Street, Carleton Place, where you will see exhibits depicting the early days of Carleton Place and Beckwith. Check the museum's web site for details and hours: http://www.cpbheritagemuseum.com/
