A favourite thing to do if one lives on the lake, is to take friends out for a look at the cabins and houses from the lakeside point of view.  Today, there is much more than the bald prairie as you see in the photo taken of Ed and his friends in 1913.  In keeping with that most enjoyable type of trip, The Chestermere Historical Foundation held the first annual guided  boat trip around the lake in June of 2016 as part of Seniors Week.  It was so popular that these tours were repeated in June of 2017, with appreciation to John Kittler of The Chestermere Landing for providing the launch and driver for both 2016 and 2017, and in 2017 special thanks to Dr. Jed Snatic of Lifepath Wellness for a donation to provide waterproof hand-arounds to show images of the lake history.
