Four cottagers from Lake Matinenda received an Ontario Volunteer Service Award on 23 May 2014 at a ceremony in Sault Ste Marie. The honorees are: Jason Imbeau and Jerry Behnke (pictured) as well as Ed Pilon and Sharon Dupuis who were not able to attend.
It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Mike Luxon, of Roy’s Northland Camp. Mike and his family have been a vital and important part of the Matinenda community for as long as most residents remember. His genuine spirit and words of wisdom will remain an everlasting part of the lake he loved. He passed peacefully on March 12th at the age of 72. A lakeside celebration of Mike’s life is planned during the summer.
Ed Pilon, on behalf of the Lake Matinenda Cottage Owners Association, presented checks to Frank Piche of the Blind River Food Bank and Chris Clark of the Timber Village Museum.
