The Beachers’ Organization makes a difference!


In April, members received by email their annual membership renewal. Fees are $45 with our Winter Patrol property inspection service costing $65.00 for weekly visits done November through March. We’ll continue to send out periodic friendly electronic payment reminders in this Covid restriction period we are in.

Each year $2,000 - $3,000 of your dues are spent on our waterfront improvement projects. This year we’ll provide life saving defibrillators for both Port Elgin and Gobles Grove beaches. And to celebrate the opening of Port Elgin beach’s newly rebuilt Breakwall Promenade we’ll be donating a child friendly binocular viewing station to take in the lake vistas.

We are updating our privacy and code of conduct policies and agreement to these will now be a requirement of membership. Existing paid up members will be emailed these policies. Please ensure your email information is correct. You can manage this on the website.

Watch for our ongoing parkette fundraising efforts which are focused on the sale of engraved family pavers in two sizes at $250 and $500 allowing 30 or 60 letter spaces for your family message. It’s a great way to memorialize your family inside the new parkette. No member dues are used to fund the parkette.

Your current volunteer board and our former directors work hard to try to prioritize and address issues impacting our members, with a focus on beach and water safety, to continuously strive to make waterfront living in Port Elgin safer and more enjoyable.
