    Gremlins and Goblins and Witches on brooms,
    what do you think about a party under the moon!
    A kids Halloween party that’ll be such a fright,
    Dancing and eating and music all night!
    I know its 2 months away but thought I’d put it out there, and perhaps start planning early.
    Let’s start an annual kids Halloween party, we can see about having it at the marina or the fire hall?
    Cause I know as a parent we spend too much money on costumes and they don’t get to wear them enough
    What do you think lakers?

    From Jennifer Wiebe

    Potential Dates are either Oct.27th/28th mid afternoon. Keep an eye on the website and facebook page for confirmed details.

    Good morning,

    FYI, our test came back from our lagoon and we are able to discharge.  We will begin that process today.   The pump runs 24/7 for about 5 days then we flow the sewage over.    The smell usually increases during this time and could be increased over the next two weeks intermittently.

    Thanks, Linda

    Re: Municipal Payments

    Multi-Material Stewardship Manitoba Inc. (MMSM) received notice from the Manitoba Government, that they are terminating the January 2011 Newspaper Recycling Agreement with the newspaper stewards in the province. 

    This agreement had the Manitoba Government remitting newsprint fees to MMSM on behalf of newspaper stewards. The change is effective August 7, 2017.

    Under the Waste Reduction and Prevention Act (WRAP) and Packaging and Printed Paper Regulation, newspaper stewards are the obligated steward. Newspapers are challenging the termination and have advised MMSM they will not pay for 2017 newsprint fees.

    This places MMSM in the middle of a dispute regarding who will pay for newsprint recycling. The lack of funding for newsprint means MMSM will not have funds to pay municipalities until the issue is resolved. 

    Based on the anticipated non-payment of newsprint fees, Paint Lake-Sustainable Development will receive $60.06 less per quarter, which is a reduction of about 2% from the first two 2017 quarterly payments.

    We understand this is short notice and may create challenges for municipal programs, but unfortunately,

    MMSM has no other alternatives given the recent decisions by the Government of Manitoba and newspaper stewards.

    We are hoping for a prompt resolution to this matter. Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at (204) 953-2011 or by email at kmelnychuk@stewardshipmanitoba.org.

    Regards,

    Karen Melnychuk

    Just want to let you know that there has been some theft and vandalism going on at the campground.   Also heard from a cottager today that they had something stolen from their vehicle.

     Not sure if you can post on your web site and ask all people to be diligent at locking up valuables and reporting theft to the RCMP.

     

    Thanks,

    The Paint Lake Volunteer Fire Department would like to extend their gratitude for the community support by way of food and drinks made available to everyone in the Community Hall while dealing with the unfortunate crisis on January 21st. It was greatly appreciated to see everyone pull together for this tragedy. 

    The Paint Lake Cottage Owners Association would also like to thank the fire department and community members that really came together to help the Silva family.  I'm sure the PLCOA is not alone in wanting to thank these dedicated and courageous community members. 

    Are thoughts are with the Silva Family as they deal with recovering from this tragic house fire and if anyone would like to help them out with a monetary donation they can do so on the main paint lake community webpage. Just click on the donation link and specify what the donate is for in the comments.  They can also make a cash donation by getting in contact with Kim Rudolph at 204-679-4493.
