Since 2012 the Ruth Dare Health Clinic has opened summer weekends because of donations largely from members of the Lake Rosseau North Association. Click to read the Ruth Dare Health Clinic: Rosseau Nursing Station Newsletter 2016
This summer the Seguin Lake Associations and residents have come to together to fundraise to help support summer weekend hours. Click "Read More" about the EH! Campaign in support of the Nursing Station.
For the past three years the members of the Lake Rosseau North Association (LRNA) have worked consistently to raise funds to keep Rosseau’s Ruth Dare Health Clinic open on Saturdays and Sundays throughout July and August when the population in the area swells. The fundraising campaign was known as Rosseau EH! referencing extended hours at the nursing station. The results of this extended hours initiative have been demonstrable. Weekend hours have reduced the number of visits and ultimately wait times for the Ruth Dare Health Clinic during the week - an important bene t given the increasing demand on the nursing station over time. LJNA is joining forces with the LRNA, LLJA and other Seguin Associations and residents to fundraise for this important service. More information is in the brochure below and in our 2016 Summer Newsletter.

If you wish to make a contribution to this worthy cause please drop off a cheque made out to 'WPSHC Foundation' at the clinic or donate online at www.WPSHCF.com. Be sure to specify "Rosseau EH!" to ensure that your contribution will be earmarked for this initiative.
Sunday, 17 April 2016 the LJNA hosted a Candidates meeting at the Granite Club. The meeting was well attended. Three of the four candidates were able to attend: Susan Adams, Terry Fellner and Ron Steele. William Stoneman sent his regrets and a statement was read on his behalf by one of our board members. Each candidate was asked to introduce themselves and to respond to six questions provided by the LJNA ahead of time. There were then questions from the audience. If you were unable to attend, please feel free to get in touch with one of the board members to get more detailed comments on the meeting.
LJNA invites you to get to know the candidates, understand their platforms, and ask questions.
