Traditionally, the holiday season is a time to reflect on what we have accomplished during the past year and on the important lessons we have learnt. For the Directors of your Association, such reflection helps to reinforce our commitment to our mission of protecting and preserving the Blue Sea Lake and Blue Sea Stream watersheds for future generations.
If you would like to learn more about the work of our Association and the principal focus of its efforts, we invite you to visit our website (www.associationbluesea.org). There, you will find a wealth of information that will:
- help you better understand the important issues facing our watersheds;
- show you how you can contribute to the fulfillment of the Association’s objectives; and
- hopefully, encourage you to join our growing team of members and volunteers who are firmly committed to protecting this environment that is so dear to us.
As year 2014 comes to an end, we would like to sincerely thank our 300 members and our many volunteers without whom the Blue Sea Lake Watershed Association would not exist.
We would also like to recognize the important role played by our partners and contributors, without whose support we would not have been able to accomplish all that we have. For their cooperation and support, we would like to thank the Municipalities of Blue Sea and Messines, the MRC de la Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, the Regroupement pour la protection de l’eau de la Vallée-de-la-Gatineau, the ABV des 7, the office of the RSVL, the regional media, and the Hauts-Bois-de-l'Outaouais school board.
Finally, we would like to acknowledge the excellent cooperation we’ve received from the various lake associations operating within our watersheds. It is a privilege to work with them as equal partners as we strive together to protect our waterways. The close ties we established with these associations during last summer’s door to door information campaign will no doubt enhance our collective efforts in the future.
The Board of Directors of the Association extends to all our friends and their families our best wishes for the holidays and for 2015.
