The Town of Gull Lake would like to invite both urban and rural residents to participate in a Recreation Advisory Committee. The Committee will have a broad mandate to advise Town Council on what they would like to see in terms of recreational programs and facility improvements. Advisory Committees in the areas of heritage, economic development, tourism and cemetery have provided valuable input to Town Council. A Recreation Advisory Committee comprised of residents who are actively involved in recreation will be a tremendous benefit to our community.
