Thank You and Get Involved!
We would like to thank each of these organizations and committees for all of the work they accomplish in making sure that Oxtongue Lake is a better place. We always need volunteers, so please read up on each organization/committee and plan to get involved! Some organizations/committees only need help for special events or projects, so just letting them know you are there is helpful. Each organization is separate with it’s own mandate and by-laws, except in the case of OLA sub-committees, which are denoted. Contact any of the respective organization/committee members for more information on how to help.
