Seasons Greetings

We wish you and your family all the best to over this holiday season. The purpose of this newsletter is to provide members with a copy of the “Terms of Reference” that was signed in September 2005, and to inform you of upcoming meetings. We had originally planned to send this newsletter out in September, however, funding for this mail out was slow to arrive.

Elders Meetings – February 15, 2006 & March 15, 2006 - 7:00 PM.
At our Office in the Village of Golden Lake, behind the Post Office.
(Weather Permitting)

Upcoming Community Meetings

Welcoming at 6:00 PM (Refreshments)
Pembroke Legion, Pembroke.

Sunday, February 19, 2006 - 2:00 PM

Many Lost Algonquins!

This is a matter of great concern by your local council. Currently there are 216 mail returns on the list of the Algonquins of Greater Golden Lake (Our Adult membership is currently 1685). We ask that all Algonquins check with their Algonquin relatives and ensure that they are receiving their mail from us. If they are not getting mail from us, we probably do not have their current mailing address. We seek the help of the entire community. Please forward any new addresses to our office in Killaloe. (613) 757-0765.

The following five pages are the "Terms of Reference" (TOR) that will further guide the Algonquin Negotiation Representatives "ANR's" during the negotiation process.

Meegweetch,

Chief Patrick Glassford,
On behalf of the Algonquins of Greater Golden Lake First Nation.
PS- Please Note – Only one copy of this newsletter has been mailed out per household.
