No swimming signs for the harbor entrance were discussed

Second action item will be the installation of proper Navigational markers / aids from the Harbor Entrance to just past the Port Franks Marina Launch ramp.  The committee will be supplying a layout for their proper color and locations..

It was agreed the PFHC and Lambton Shores will maintain a working relationship for the benefit and improvement of Port Franks.

The PFHC will be posting the weekly Harbor conditions chart to its website.  It can be posted to other sites, so everyone is informed.
