I have spoken to the Township and they will remove all debris, including trunks from the side on the roadway. The home owners are responsible for getting the trees cut up and piled at the side of the road. The home owners will be responsible to rake and clean up after they are gone.

“Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
7600 Canadian soldiers who took part in the liberation of the Netherlands & who lie buried in British Commonwealth cemeteries in that country are testament to this Bible passage.
In May of this year, the KSPB was privileged to visit the Netherlands to take part in the 70th anniversary commemorations of the Liberation of that country and the end of the Second World War.
The Dutch people were wonderful hosts who treated us royally. Before discussing the band trip, I would first like to give some background on the Netherlands and the role of our troops in its liberation.
Last Sunday Leslie Ray, long time Bruce Beacher and member of both the Churchgrove and the Kincardine Pipe band spoke eloquently of her trip to the Netherlands in May to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands. Leslie used the opportunity to clearly explain the close connection that has existed, undimmed with the passage of time, between Canadians and Dutch. She did it with humour, gravitas and emotion.. I am hoping that Leslie will allow us to circulate the text of her speech to the beach through Ross's distribution.
We were very lucky on Sunday to have survived the storm with no persons injured. Or at least none that I'm aware of. Unfortunately there was damage done to some cars and cottages. I think we all need to be more thoughtful for our own safety in the future. After seeing some trees that appeared to have been twisted off the stump and seeing huge trees that had been tossed around like twigs we need to understand the danger of standing by a window watching a severe storm like this.
A kitten was brought to baseball this morning, found by a family, perhaps an orphan from the storm, I didn't get the whole story from the mass of kids adoring her. Long story short, I took the kitten home,I couldn't leave it there, and agreed to look after it and try to find it a home. Could you please send a mass email asking if anyone wants a kitten or know anyone missing a kitten? We are here until Friday at noon. If no one claims her or is interested we will take her home to Toronto Humane Society. I presume she is a barn kitty, she is gorgeous, sweet and calm, not at all feral or even nervous, and follows the kids everywhere. We are totally smitten with this kitten but are not keeping her (I repeat), not keeping her.
Another in the growing list of mini libraries at Bruce Beach. This on is at the bridge approaching the Huff-Clark ball diamond.
Feel free to donate a book or pick up a book.
Children's books are most in demand.
This year we are celebrating 20 years of our tennis lessons on Bruce Beach. We would like to invite all our past and current “ students” to join us on Saturday at the annual barbeque, for a group picture. If you could be available around 5:30 PM, we can get a picture before the food hits the table.
Looking forward to seeing all of you on Saturday!

In spite of a short rain delay, the spirit and enthusiasm of the 16 teams in the competition was not dampened. The skilled play of our teams brought many oohs and ahhs from the crowd of beachers who came down to be part of the fun and action. The tournament closed with an exciting final that had people on the edge of their lawn chairs and benches.

SUMMER 2015 MIXED DOUBLES TENNIS TOURNAMENT
Attached is a file on a Bruce Beach Summer Tennis Tournament which we are organizing. We thought it would be important to set the date, so people can plan their summer weekends if they are interested in playing.

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.
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.
