    The MNRF crew unpinned the dam and took a log out of Muldrew Lake dam following the severe thunderstorm on Wednesday.  Muldrew Lake rose 30cm overnight as a result of the 100+mm of rain that was received in the area on Tuesday.  We will monitor lake levels and will return the log and re-pin them back down when levels are back to where they are supposed to be.  Its really unfortunate that we received a storm like that, given the weather network was only calling for 15-20mm.  They were way off this time and a lot of the lakes saw a large increase as a result.  Muldrew Lake should react fairly quickly to the log operation so you should see some relief soon.

    Rana from the Beer Store made a few calls and was able to set up a drop off location for bottle returns to be donated to Gravenhurst Against Poverty. GAP. 

    They will be accepting empties on GAPs behalf on Mondays and Wednesday’s. They have even setup a key on their Point of Sale which will accumulate the donations and send GAP a cheque once per month. What a spirit of community we have going on here in Gravenhurst. 

    GAP has gone from serving about 80 meals per week to delivering over 300 meals plus groceries during this pandemic which has resulted in a lot of job losses. So please share with your friends if you would like to participate.

    Muldrew says goodbye to another fellow cottager.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and families of the Peakers.

    WESTELL GORDON PEAKER Aged 89, died peacefully at Trillium Mississauga Hospital on April 1, 2020 after a long and fulfilling life. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Dorothy-Jean (née Franklin); his children Susanne Hartman (Jerry), Joanne Gray (Michael), and Robert Peaker (Hilary); and his grandchildren Christopher, Melissa, Matthew, Andrew, and Noah. Predeceased by his brother, James Peaker. Special thanks to the ICU and Stroke units at Trillium Mississauga and Dr. A. Zee for their compassionate care and support. Wes, a Life Member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario, enjoyed a successful career in the fields of public accountancy and corporate finance. He enjoyed playing squash at the 'B&R', running at the Cambridge Club, spending time with family cottaging at Muldrew Lake, long daily walks with his beloved dogs, and discussing current events. If you so wish, a donation in Wes' honour to the Trillium Health Partners would be appreciated.

    We are missing our seadoo port. I am wondering if anyone has seen it? It was tied off in our swimming area and when I got up today, it was gone. We are at 618 Peninsula Rd. (on the point, two cottages over from the cannon). If you have any information, please call or text 440-708-6342. Thanks, Sherry Dick
