I am reaching out to you on behalf of the Eganville an Area Community Development Group (EACDG) which started in the fall of 2016 with the goal of improving the area for all to enjoy.
One of our major projects is the new waterfront which we are well on our way to fund raising.
Many property owners on Lake Clear have either roots, memories or some sort of attachment to Eganville and as such maybe interested in being part of history as outlined in the attachment.
Might it be possible that this could be posted to the Lake Clear web site and face book page please for all to see?

Our family had a hand built cottage on the lake for decades. I wrote this song in 1990 and produced this song just a few years ago. Feel free to share and feedback is appreciated.

First morning with significant ice forming along the shore. You can also see icy surface patches out in the calm areas. Still ducks around, too!!

Last Sunday me and my mom went to the lake and we saw in boathouse bay at the cottage "our first look of winter".

The beaver has started a dam on Hurd's Creek between Lake Clear and Little Lake Clear. This could become an issue with water flow out of Lake Clear.
Little Lake Clear

This fall has been truly remarkable at the lake with incredibly beautiful weather that just keeps lasting. Now that the nights seem to have turned cold again, there have been some great morning photo opportunities.
... for the first time in many years. For decades my family rented a cottage from the Goulet family, at the end of what is now French's Road. I am attaching some photos I took.
Question 1: whatever happened to Stricklands right at the corner of 512 and Sand Road? I saw the site was completely empty. We used to stop there after forgetting things at the grocery store in town.
Question 2: There used to be a farm with a small creek running close by in a small valley on the right hand side of highway 512 between Eganville and the Lake Clear Road. My father used to stop our car there and buy bait fish, shiners, from the farmer who used to trap them in the stream. The stream ran under the road. I remember it well as one year our dog Dinty unfortunately got out of the car and killed two of the farmer's chickens. There was a ruckus about that! Dad had to fork over a few bucks to calm the old fellow down. I could find no trace of any such farm when twice driving the 512. Any idea of where it was and/or what happened to it? Cheers,

Here is the eagle sitting in a tree next door yesterday afternoon. Guess he was watching for fish or the two ducks that have just returned to the open water.
The video below shows some great winter family fun on the lake!
