2018 Draws to a Close

In a few days it will be 2019.   The lake has been frozen since the third week of November, earlier than usual, and 2018 was a year filled with significant changes for Renaissance Lac Brome.  In April we were fortunate to be able to hire a permanent employee, Anaïs Renaud, through collaboration with the OBV-Yamaska, (Yamaska Watershed Organization).  Having a regular employee who is a biologist has been of great help in pursuing activities through the 2018 season and should benefit future programs greatly as well.  Ms. Renaud left on maternity leave in September and has been replaced during her absence by Jean-Claude Gingras, agronomist.

Several long-standing board members left Renaissance this year and their experience and devotion will be sorely missed.  We have had the pleasure of welcoming three new members who joined the board this fall and the work of updating processes and bylaws and formalizing a code of conduct is ongoing, with plans to present these to the membership and to formalize them at the annual general meeting in May 2019.


We would like to take the opportunity to thank our members, partners, major sponsors, the Town of Brome Lake and all the other enthusiastic people without whose support the work of Renaissance would not be possible.  Renaissance Lac-Brome thanks you all and wishes everyone a happy 2019.   Renaissance will continue to work to maintain and improve the quality of Brome Lake and its watershed in 2019 with your support.
