Inverhuron District Ratepayers Association
Spring 2012 Newsletter
Here comes another summer season to have fun at Inverhuron
Inverhuron has more to offer the residents than just a great beach, parks for the kids and an expansive provincial park to explore. It has a rate payers association with dedicated volunteers who want to ensure that every resident gets something wonderful during their stay, short term or long term and create memories into the next generation. But the board needs the residents to show their support and become a member. For only $20 you can keep in touch with your summer community and goings on throughout the year. Your $20 goes toward getting a new updated Directory every 3 years, keeping equipment such as gazebos and coolers tables on hand and in good condition to use at our events. It keeps the Website ( www.inverhuronrate.com ) up and running and helps to pay for the food in events such as Kids Day and the Corn Roast Your membership is an easy and beneficial way of showing your support of your community. Take the time to get to know the members of the board if possible; we are here to make Inverhuron a wonderful place.
The Board of Directors would appreciate your feedback.
THINGS GOING ON THIS YEAR AT INVERHURON YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
The Inverhuron and District Ratepayers Association (IDRA) was established in 1978 to serve the community as it was then evolving in a more diverse makeup comprising seasonal and permanent residents. This was trend in demographics was essentially due to the nuclear power development in the area centred on the second concession of Bruce Township near the lakeshore. Prior to the beginning of the early nuclear power developments with the Douglas Power Plant in the early 1960's, most residents of Inverhuron were seasonal and lived near the sand beach from the river south of Bruce Road 15 for a short distance. The predecessor to the IDRA was the Inverhuron Beach Association established in 1946 that focused mostly on items related to beach activities mostly in the summertime. Currently residents of the district of Inverhuron reside from the Concession 2 of Bruce Township on the north side to the border with Lorne Beach on the south. The Aims of the IDRA as established by the constitution of IDRA in 1978 follow.
