Congratulations and kudos to the White Lake Cottage Association for their well-deserved award from the Federation of Ontario Cottagers Association (FOCA). Keeping our lakes as pristine as possible is an ongoing challenge for all lake property owners. White Lake property owners have assumed additional responsibility to support the fish culture station affecting many Ontario lakes with their research and stocking programs. Invasive phragmites are a nasty plant to control. The White Lake Association’s success has given us renewed hope as we tackle two patches on our lake. Education with the public seems critical to each of these endeavours. FOCA is an amazing organization dedicated to educating the cottagers of Ontario to environmental issues and the preservation of lake property values. We have been the recipient of grants on several occasions and presently are supported for our efforts to control Eurasian Water Milfoil. The Frontenac News is to be commended, once again, for its coverage of the White Lake article as a major educational piece affecting the readership and beyond.
