BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP
We all love Juniper Island, whether it’s our first time standing on the dock or if it’s memories of family and friends — Juniper is a magical place that many of us call our second home.
As part of the Association, we wanted to share a few of the things that we work on year-round to ensure Juniper preserves its heritage and that we’re constantly innovating as a community.
Did you know for example, the Association is responsible for the following:
keeping Juniper Island Store up and running by selecting and mentoring its operators.
managing capital improvements to ensure that the Store is compliant with the health and safety regulations.
organizing and paying for (with support from the SLYC) garbage collection and recycling.
innovating to monitor and respond to our environment footprint — did you notice the great water bottle refill station installed in 2018?
maintaining and monitoring the island’s washrooms.
running events that are enjoyed by our community — square dances, movies, masquerade, Wing Night… and more.
hiring, scheduling and managing programs like swimming, canoeing, yoga and environment camps.
running the historic Regatta and Mile Swim.
maintaining the library and museum.
And perhaps most importantly, the Association acts as an environment steward for cottagers — protecting wetlands and monitoring development on the lake.
If you’re not a member, please join now, membership and cottager’s participation in the Association is critical to the survival of community that has been built on the lake. PLUS - when you join, you’ll receive your copy of the amazing ISLANDER and the membership directory.
