    The municipalities around the 31 Mile lake have been looking for to eco-tourism as a way to improve the local economy.  Recently a number of municipalities worked with consultants to examine the possibility of creating a regional park around the 31 Mile Lake.  A preliminary study was published in April.  Here is a link to the original version in french:

    Park Study: 31 Mile Lake Regional Park Plan - April 2016.pdf

    Members of the GFGC board have been working with the lake associations to carefully monitor and assess these plans.

    For member's whose french is a little rusty the Board has translated the key section 6.2 which outlines park plans for specific areas of the 31 Mile lake.

    Rough Translation: Parc Régional Section 6-2 Rough Translation.pdf

    The Parc Régional, proposed for land surrounding 31 Mile Lake, should be of paramount interest to members owning cottages on Thirty-One, Pemi, or Heney, and we encourage all members to attend the following important meetings and ask questions.

    On Saturday, August 20, 2016 at 10:00 am, Julie Cosineau, Board President of the Thirty-One Mile Lake Association, and Joanne Poulin, Mayor of Gracefield, will hold an Information Session for GF&GC members on the proposed Parc Régional. This meeting will be held at the GF&GC Clubhouse.

    On Sunday, August 21, 2016 at 10:00 am, the mayors of Gracefield, Bouchette, Sainte-Thérèse-de-la-Gatineau, and Déléage will hold a town meeting/informational session on the proposed Parc Régional. This meeting will be held at the municipal building in Bouchette.

    On Sunday, August 28th at 9:00 am, the Thirty-One Mile Lake Association will hold their annual meeting, and discussion on the Parc Régional will be a major agenda item. This meeting will be held at the municipal building in Bouchette.

    As Club members may be aware, the two lake associations are participating in a volunteer water testing program organized by the Quebec government.  For the latest test results and background information about this program check out the Water Quality page.  Here the executive summary:

    "The bottom line is that the water quality of our two lakes is uniformly high. While reassuring, we should probably not be complacent. Both natural and human factors can influence a lake’s transparency level and trophic state. Nutrients carried into water bodies from non-point sources such as agricultural runoff, residential fertilisers, phosphate detergents and sewage can all increase the algal biomasss, and can easily cause an oligotrophic lake to become eutrophic over time."

    The GF&GC wants to display member photographs of the Club's early years in the new Members' Lounge at the Clubhouse. Do you have pictures that should be shared with everyone? Post them to the photo album. The Board may choose your picture for a Clubhouse wall!
