2018 year-end message

 

The Stony Lake Heritage Foundation is deeply grateful to the Stony Lake community for its ongoing support for the work of the Foundation.  During 2018 your gifts to the Foundation allowed us to work with key partners on two major projects.   We made a three year commitment to the Kawartha Land Trust to assist with the costs of acquiring and protecting lands at the eastern end of the Stony Lake Trails network on the north shore of Stony Lake.   We financed the final stage of a project to obtain and analyze core samples from the bed of Stony Lake with a view to understanding longer term changes in lake nutrients that can drive the production of algal blooms and other nuisance algae.  And we continued to pay for the cost of water quality monitoring on Stony Lake.  We stand ready to continue to protect the heritage buildings at Juniper Island as the need arises.

To help us continue this work, please consider joining me in making a donation to the Foundation this holiday season.    To all of you who contributed to the Foundation during 2018, please accept our deepest thanks.  An easy way to donate is through the following website:  www.canadahelps.org  You are also welcome to mail a gift to us at Stony Lake Heritage Foundation, Box 146, Lakefield ON K0L 2H0.

We wish you Season’s Greetings of every kind – Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or Solstice, and a happy New Year however you choose to celebrate it.
