April was another busy month for LHCCC staff, gearing up for the action-packed summer ahead. Just like many of you, we are loving the warmer spring weather and soaking up some sun during our lunch hour walks along the Goderich Beach.

The Canadian Propane Association suggests the consumers consider the full picture now that Natural Gas is being expanded into the Perth East area.
The President and CEO suggests natural gas could end up as a more expensive option in recently approved expansion areas like Milverton.
Nathalie St-Pierre says there are a lot of costs that customers should take into account.
“Conversion costs, there’s the connection costs, so if your driveway is far from the line you going to have some costs there to ensure that you’re connected, there are delivery costs,” she says
There’s a huge summer celebration Saturday at Kincardine’s Station Beach. It’s Bruce Power’s annual Beach Party.
Over 4,000 guests will be entertained and fed, starting at 6 p.m. in the main tent. Opening ceremonies will begin at 6:30 p.m.
There will be a 48-foot inflated obstacle course, two 24-foot rock climbing walls, jumbo games, bouncy castles, giant kites on the beach, balloon twisters, face painters, airbrushed tattoo artists, a photo booth, as well as a number of local entertainers.
The finale is fireworks at dusk over Lake Huron.
The Municipality of South Bruce is looking at a brighter future despite the loss of the brewery in Formosa.
Mayor Robert Buckle says he is very disappointed that the brewery that opened in 1870, closed this month, and will no longer be Formosa’s major employer.
Brick brewed it last beer in Formosa earlier this month, and Buckle says they hope to be able to bring in a new owner.

On Aug. 2, Stephen McKellar first noticed a small mark on his right thigh. Thinking it wasn’t anything serious, him and his wife continued on with their planned vacation the next day to Fox Harbour in Nova Scotia. But the next day, the mark had swelled into a large red lesion that covered the back of his thigh.
If you’re sick of the grind, city living isn’t necessary to have a fulfilling, profitable career. Many jobs are transferable to rural areas—notably, doctors, nurses and teachers are in high demand in Canada’s smaller municipalities.
But if you’re trying to get away from fast-paced life, there are many careers that allow you truly revel in the cottage country lifestyle year-round. Here are eight jobs that you can still do dockside—or at least outdoors.
Folks across Canada like to take advantage of the country’s all-too-short summer by leaving their primary dwellings and escaping to somewhere with a little more wilderness, a little less chaos and, ideally, a lot more relaxation.
But while the need to get away is pretty universal, there are some important differences across the country.
Welcome to April's edition of the LHCCC Newsletter! Spring has “sort of sprung”? Mother nature is trying her best to bring back our summer weather, and I am sure many of you are contemplating your returns to your cottages and planning your summer vacation.
Wow, do we have a lot to share in this month’s newsletter! The Coastal Centre has been very busy collaborating with environmental groups along our shoreline to protect your lake.
I had the opportunity to attend the Environmental Defense Gala in Toronto. We have had a planning workshop with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, met with Conservation Authorities, Healthy Lake Huron and the Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association. We have made presentations to several of your municipal councils, have met with Pine River Watershed Initiative Network and the International Joint Commission. We are doing all this in an effort to link all environmental groups along our shore to create a cohesive effort to protect and improve the health of Lake Huron.
