Toronto Star Newspaper Delivery to Cottage

Out of curiosity the other day I Googled the Toronto Star, Home Delivery and completed a request to have the Star delivered to the cottage.

Surprise of surprises! The next morning the Star was at the end of our laneway.

And to add to the delight, the price for one month,on an introductory offer  for 6 months is $17.81 per month and you are able to cancel at any time.

Now, why am I promoting this?  Strictly because of a selfish motive. I am concerned that if not enough people subscribe that we may loose this home delivery.

Souvenir History of Bruce Beach

FOR well over forty years the Summer Resort known as Bruce Beach on Lake Huron’s friendly shore has been the holiday rendezvous for health-seekers, pleasure-seekers and tor those who were just tired. From a very modest beginning the popularity and the population have grown by leaps and bounds. The need of having some sort of historical souvenir which would preserve the happy annals of the Beach had been keenly felt for a long time. It was not, however, until the year 1915 that the meeting of this need took concrete form.

A History of Bruce Beach

Shortly after the Bruce Beach Historical Society was formed in the Fall of 1981, I was having lunch with a friend. When asked why I had given up curling that year, one of the two or three reasons I mentioned was my interest in publishing history of Bruce Beach, where my family had been spending their summers for more than sixty years. "How fortunate you are to have such roots", replied my friend.
