More Break and Enter

Once again we have become aware of more break-and-enter thefts in and around the Marean Lake area.  RCMP are aware of the situation, cabin owners should ensure their properties are checked regularly over the winter months.  For any concerns, contact the RCMP at either the Kelvington office (306-327-1200) or Rose Valley (306-322-2550).

Beach Store – now “Bob’s Place”

Carrie Lamoureux, from Rose Valley, has assumed the operation of the store for the coming year.  Check it out on Facebook.

In addition to several exciting changes in the store itself, she is also looking to facilitate two sessions of Red Cross swimming lessons in the upcoming season.  Contact Megan Johnson by email at megan_johnson4@hotmail.com if you are interested in lessons.

Water Ski and Wakeboard Clinic

WSWS

Water Ski and Wakeboard Saskatchewan is interested in organizing a clinic at Marean Lake during the summer of 2016.  The clinic would be held on a weekend consisting of 2-3 days and could accommodate 10-12 participants per day depending on interest.  All the equipment, life jackets, boat and fuel is provided by WSWS and is included in the cost of approximately $60-$75/person/day. The price may vary depending on the number of registrants.   This would be a great opportunity for all ages and skill levels.

They have created a short survey to get an idea of how much interest there is, and will organize the clinic based on the results. Please click on the link below to complete the survey.

Aerial Spraying for Tent Caterpillars – Update

The cool weather a few weeks ago delayed the leafing of the trees and the development of the caterpillars, but that changed dramatically in the last 2 days. Weather permitting, tent caterpillar spraying at Greenwater and Marean could start as early as Monday, May 25th. Look for planes to be in the air starting between 5:00 and 6:00 AM.

(Note: Spraying was completed as planned on the morning of the 25th)

May Long Weekend Security

Over the upcoming May long weekend additional security measures will be implemented within the resort in order to ensure that we all have a safe and enjoyable weekend.
