Book Drive

The SSCA is looking for gently used kid’s and teen’s books to build up our library currently located in the Schoolhouse - graphic novels, action, adventure, detective, fiction, board books, etc!  We’d like to keep up with the literary demands of our great group of cottage readers!  Thank you for helping out with this worthwhile project. For information on dropping off books at the community centre, please contact sscaprograms@gmail.com


The what3words app is now available in Ontario for iOS and Android devices.  Based on a global mapping system, the app assigns three-word tags to three-metre locations. When 911 gets these three-words, they are able to convert them into latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates and so quickly locate the emergency.
The app can function without cell service. For example, if you’re out on a lake and your boat has broken down, you can identify the three metre square area you’re stranded in (rather than saying you’d travelled about 40 minutes from shore in a rough direction). Also, emergency services can send a link to users without the app that will show the caller's three-word location tag.
It is recommended that you obtain the three-word tag for your cottage while standing on your dock so that they correspond to the cottage emergency island number.
