This Family Day, come celebrate the coldest season with your hardiest neighbours!
Koshlong is always beautiful, but there's something extra special about winter -- it's quiet, the daylight is precious, the lake transforms to a white expanse for exploring, intrepid anglers brave the icy winds, and a hardy few even build skating rinks along the shore.
If you're a winter warrior, we hope you will join us this Family Day weekend at Umbrella Island for an informal social -- like the Paddle Your Own social, but on the ice. Bring your own hot beverage in a thermos, and arrive by your preferred mode of winter transport (anyone coming by dogsled?)
We've tried this before and had to cancel (first due to lockdowns, then rain and questionable ice), but we'll keep trying. Hope to see you this Family Day!
Please join us ONLINE for this year's Annual General Meeting!
The AGM is open to all current members of the KLA.
We have heard from some of you that you would love to meet in person again, and while we do miss the chance to get together, Virtual meetings have proven more accessible to a larger and more diverse group of KLA members. We hope to see you in-person at other social events this season!
Registration will open in May, and you will receive a link to the Zoom event once you have registered.
Back for year 3, it's the Koshlong Concert on the Water!
Bring your guests and gather before dusk for a lively concert given by our very own Koshlong Lake members. The performance will be held at the Corporan family dock in Telephone Bay, prior to the fireworks display.
No registration is required, but we ask that everyone boat with caution and keep noise in the area down out of respect for the musicians.
Rain date July 2 (Sunday).
All residents and guests on Koshlong are invited to gather at dusk around Umbrella Island for a celebratory display of fireworks!
Please keep 100 metres upwind of the launch area, and please use caution around other craft, particularly after dark.
For everyone's safety, all vessels must operate proper running lights from dusk onward.
Enjoy the light show? Help us clean up the debris afterward so Umbrella Island can be enjoyed safely by all! We'll gather the morning after the fireworks with our keen eyes and garbage bags.
Students can earn community service hours for their assistance!
Paddle your canoe, kayak, paddle board or peddle boat on over to Umbrella Island to connect with your lake neighbours!
Snacks and coffee will be provided, please bring your own travel mug.
No registration required, all non motorized vessels are welcome.
Rain Date: Sunday, August 6
