Happy Easter Everyone
We should finally hear the sound of
waves this weekend as the ice on the bay
should finally disappear along with any
last traces of snow. The signs of a hard
winter are evident on our shoreline with
loss of beach grass and erosion. We
have more stones than we remember down
near the park making walking difficult.
Tiny Township has removed snow fencing
from our beach paths. We thank them for
assisting with our efforts to keep the
sand from blowing off our beach during
the winter months.
WBPOA wishes you a fun safe weekend.

Pet waste, kitty litter and small animal

available from your pet food store, must
be used for pet waste.

NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH UPDATE:
We would like to thank one of our
members for advising us that patio
furniture was taken from their porch
roadside and cushions from the beach
side in early April. Cottages and
seasonal homes are the most vulnerable
to property crime during the fall,
winter and spring when they are not
being used by the property owner. If
you suspect something unusual, such as a
car in the driveway, start by recording
information such as a licence
plate, colour of vehicle, time of day.
You are not expected to get involved -
just be aware. N/W has not had
reports of any other occurrences.
