Come to the annual Mermaid corn boil on Saturday 24 September at 1:30PM in the area behind the "River Meadows of Mermaid" sign. This is a great opportunity to meet your neighbours, as well as the Mermaid community at large. Please bring your own refreshments, and don't forget a chair.

The farmer looking after the green space will be applying a weed control pesticide sometime between 8 and 17 July 2011, dependent on wind and weather conditions. See notice for full details, and help spread the word to your neighbours who may not have registered for email announcements.

The annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup event this year is 17-25 Sep. Those of us who own waterfront property are encouraged to perform an extra inspection and cleanup during this period. Event website.


The annual Mermaid community corn boil is extended for a second day: Sunday 25 September, 1:30-4PM. Do not disappoint the organizers, and do not miss out on some great tasting corn from Baldersons. There is no charge. Just come, and be sure to bring the kids. Correction to earlier notice: some refreshments are supplied.

Wanted: Mosquito Hunters. River Meadows has its own mosquito control program that is supported by volunteers in our community. Training and provincial certification costs, as well as all supplies, are paid for by our H.O. association. Annual association dues are also waived for those who undergo the training and then participate in the program each year. Lots of information, including training manuals, is available on the PEI Gov Environmental website. New volunteers are needed. Please contact Ian Walker for more information.

Annual Spring Cleanup: metals (9-15 May); waste (16-22 May); compostable (23-29 May). IWMC info.

As you may have noticed by the change in our website url to, and other changes on our home page, our incorporation as "River Meadows of Mermaid Inc" has been finalized. I am pleased to announce the completion of this key step in our long-term plan to safeguard our collective interests in our subdivision. We will now move forward to gain control of, and begin to develop, the Green Space for our community. You may view our incorporation documents by clicking on Incorporation & Bylaws. Please check back for information about, and date of, our next AGM in April 2011.

As always, if you have any comments or questions about our association or our subdivision, please contact me or any other member of our Executive Committee. Thank you, Tony Pyke, Chair
