Jean-Pierre Pilon

President

 

A retired engineer, Jean-Pierre Pilon has worked in the water and municipal engineering field for a good part of his career.  Owner of Brome Lake for 15 years, he is now a permanent resident. A fishing and sailing enthusiast, he enjoys the lake with his children and grandchildren and would like our community to be able to do the same for future generations.

Patrick Binckly

Secretary

 

William Anders, on December 24, 1968, took a photo of “our house” with a point of view never observed.  A blue ball in a black ocean.  Patrick says it was perhaps this image that made him realize that we are only tenants of our only place of residence and that we have the responsibility to take the greatest care of it, for ourselves as well as for the generations that will have to correct all the wrongs that we afflict in our house.

A resident of Stukely-Sud, his commitment to Conservation Lac Brome is linked to the protection of the Quilliams stream sub-watershed.  It is said that if "the flapping of a butterfly in Brazil can cause a tornado in Texas” so imagine the effects that a lack of environmental precaution could have on the part of the municipalities upstream of your lake.

Passionate about paddling, he organized Pagayage Lac Brome 2021. In addition, he contributes to the private pond project and uses his time on the water to check water quality and the health of the shoreline and banks of our streams.
