Regretfully Earth Day Spring Clean Event Has Been Cancelled

MLRA Earth Day Spring Clean 2013

The MLRA has been running fantastic annual Earth Day events since 2006.  Back in 2013 we held our Earth Day Community Spring Clean even despite a light dusting of snow but for the first time in our history, we have been faced with unprecedented weather that will not allow this event to take place.  Although the weather this weekend will be some of the best weather we have seen this year, the area has not yet recovered from the ice and snow storm from a couple of days ago.  With the ground still covered in a heavy layer of snow and ice, we won’t be able to see the litter to clean up and we are concerned about the safety of everyone involved.

This will be the first time that this event has been cancelled.

The Earth Day event has grown over the years and has become the largest Earth Day clean up in the region. The best part is that you really can see a difference walking around the lake after the day has passed.

This year, as always, we had dedicated sponsors who showed their commitment to the community by supporting this very special event. We would like to thank the following organizations for their continued support. United Soils has been a devoted sponsor over the years with supplying free food and their street sweeper. The street sweeper lifts tons of sand off our roads before it can wash into the lake. Lake Simcoe Conservation Authority was also excited to be back with their children’s education program and their teams on hand to answer questions for the residents. Tim Hortons from Stouffville once again stepped up and was going to be on hand with their coffee, hot chocolate and Timbits to get us going in the morning.

Our Councillor Maurice Smith has been an integral part of the planning of this event and was once again on board with full support from the Town of Stouffville providing the garbage bins, vests, gloves and bags that are so important for this event.  Councillor Smith coordinates the police that are on hand to make sure everyone is safe while we walk the roads.

Last, but not least, Mike Feld from Most Excellent Productions and Cedar Beach Resort were once again going to provide all of their equipment and people free of charge so that this event could take place.

This is truly an amazing community that we live in and we are so very grateful for the continued support we receive from the residents and  local business owners. We will never be able to thank you enough for all your help and support through the years.

We may not be able to host a formal Earth Day event this weekend, but once the snow melts, please get outside and take a moment to help Spring Clean our community.

Thank you,

MLRA

Great Canadian Shoreline Clean Up

Hello Everyone, we hope you are having a safe and fun summer so far.

Even though we have our very successful annual Earth Day Community Spring Clean Event every spring, we jumped at this offer from the great people at Desjardins Insurance to include Musselman’s Lake in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. It is much appreciated!

Cedar Beach Resort has once again stepped up and will be managing all the garbage/recycling from this event as they have been doing for us annually on Earth Day. Thank you Kyle Jenkin and the whole Cedar Beach Resort team for their continued commitment to the betterment of our community.

 

More information below.

 

“DESJARDINS to help clean up Musselman’s Lake!

On August 22, from 1:30 – 3:00 pm,  employees of Desjardins’ office in Aurora will be walking along the banks of Musselman’s Lake to help take action against shoreline litter.  They will be participating in “The Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup”, a conservation initiative by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF-Canada) and the Vancouver Aquarium, which encourages people across Canada to remove shoreline litter and help create healthy waters for everyone, including the wildlife and communities that depend on them.

Last year, this program collected 445,915 cigarette butts, 25,045 beverage cans, 31,541 plastic bottles, 16,860 plastic grocery bags, and 35,005 plastic and foam containers.

There will be approximately 20 volunteers from Desjardins visiting our community, and they will be walking by our lake’s sand banks and roadways while cleaning up litter that can have a devastating impact on our wildlife and local ecosystem.  When you see them outside during the afternoon of August 22, please do not hesitate to say hello!

Desjardins, a leading cooperative financial group in Canada, has a stated mission to contribute towards improving the economic and social well-being of local communities”

The community cleanup was a huge success this year.

We want to thank Councillor Maurice Smith for helping to organize this year’s event and chairing the organizing committee.

Over 100 volunteers of all ages participated.

There were 6 different crews covering all around the lake and we also had the marine unit, on the water, with Kevin and Tyler doing the lake shore line.

Everyone started the day with coffee, hot chocolate & Tim bits donated by Tim Hortons.

All the kids wore protective bright fluorescent vests provided by the town of Whitchurch – Stouffville, who also made sure we all had gloves, garbage bags and the huge 40 yard garbage bin.

The York Regional Police escorted the 3 crew wagons with their new ATV’s.

Cedar Beach Resort provided their big parking lot again this year, as our base, as well as the bathrooms, picnic tables, tractors and wagons, garbage bins and a 20 yard recycling bin.

Everyone collected garbage around the area for over two hours.

It is unbelievable but they filled the entire 40 yard bin and also the 20 yard recycling bin.

Ten tires were also collected and fifteen bikes were donated to Africycle.

At the same time the United Soils street sweeper covered many of our local streets picking up the sand from this winter.

Everyone had a healthy hot lunch courtesy of United Soils & Tiny Seedlings – corn on the cob and chili served out of their events trailer.

Donnlyn Home Improvements joined this year and handed out water and treats for the kids along the routes and at lunch. 

Charlinda’s Belgian Chocolates gave away chocolate treats with lunch and of course George at the variety store gave all the kids a free ice cream cone for participating.

York Regional Police set up a display and everyone got to check out the ATV’s and discuss road safety.

The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority set up a large display.

Christa Sharp and Brian Kemp of the LSRCA had an education area set up and discussed the living organisms with water right out of the lake. It was interactive for all the participants.

Small seedling trees – pines, cedars and spruce, were also given out to the participants to take home and plant.

Roger Carlsen, a new resident to the lake, and also a professional photographer, documented the entire event. (see attached photos)

Tents, music, power, & tables were provided again this year by Most Excellent Productions.

Earth Day 2016 is one that our entire community can be proud of.

Thank you to all the sponsors and volunteers for making our lake a better place to live.

LOOKING FORWARD TO 2017!

Labour Day Fireworks at Cedar Beach, Musselman’s Lake

By Charlene Jones

Who gets to sit on their dock and watch a powerful display of fireworks in the air and the water? We do.

Friends joined us from Claremont and Whitby to share in this, one of the many extraordinary moments supplied by living on Musselman’s Lake.

Thanks go out from our hearts to the owner/operators of Cedar Beach and to the talents of Pyromaniacs for putting on this celebration of the last of summer, the first of fall.

Thank You!
