The Sublime and Mysterious Order of Cock-eyed Loons celebrates members of the LWCA who have contributed in various ways to lake life and conservation efforts. Each year new members are welcomed to the "order" at the AGM where they must perform the dance of the loon. Started at a party on Walker Island in 1924, iit has been rejuvenated several times over the years and continues today.
Our annual AGM is a great day packed with activities, information, and opportunities to meet other cottagers. It is typically held on Saturday morning of the Civic Holiday long weekend (beginning of August).
Other activities that we are involved in include the Labour Day Treasure Hunt at Tanglewood Marina and the Sailing Regatta.
Educational materials and campaigns on topics such as safe boating, lake maps, the Loon Call Newsletter, blog posts, email updates, Instagram, Facebook and this website are all ways that we keep our cottagers informed.
