In 1946, a small group of individuals gathered to discuss how they could unite local cottagers to promote the betterment of Point Clark. These founding members included Alfred George Murton, Robert Oliver, and Emma Hulen. From this meeting, the Point Clark Beach Association (PCBA) was born.
The founding 1946 Charter identified the purpose of this new organization was:
“To promote and develop social welfare, civic improvement, recreation and other nonprofitable purposes in the public interest and to establish, construct, acquire, manage and operate such facilities as may be required for any such purposes.”
These were lofty goals indeed and we owe a huge debt of gratitude to the vision and work of our founding members.
Fast forward to 2021, 75 years after PCBA’s inception, Point Clark has grown into a residential and cottage community. As part of the Township of Huron-Kinloss, the area’s population has increased 9% since 2016 with 7723 residents identified in Statistics Canada, 2021 Census of Population.
As a result, the PCBA Directors gathered once again to envision the future of this growing association and determine how it could best advocate on behalf of the citizens of Point Clark and the future of this beautiful, lakeside community.
“The PCBA shall serve as a common voice for property owners and act as a liaison with other beach associations, community groups, and governmental units. It shall also promote the quality and enjoyment of life in the Point Clark area. It shall act as a source of information.”
