This picture was taken last Monday morning by Heather Currie of 124, picture of the kids playing baseball at the cottage this morning. We agreed that the rays of sunshine are Bruce Beach cottagers who've passed, smiling down at the ongoing traditions.
Located on the south side of the Club House.
To entice some "northenders" there is a copy of Baseball for Dummies!!
Don't worry it's mostly pictures...
If you could pass this along to the masses it would be appreciated.
We are still looking for more volunteers for Junior Baseball. Summer is here and we have three weeks that still require a volunteer to help out. The weeks we need a volunteer are:
July 20 - 24th - NEXT WEEK
Aug 24 - 28th
Aug 31st - Sept 3rd
Please contact me at the phone numbers or emails listed below if you are able to help out.
The Little Book Library in Cameron Grove no longer has any children’s books(about ages 7-14). Apparently there has been more “taking” than “leaving”, which is a good sign that reading is taking place at Bruce Beach. If anyone along the beach has a few children’s books(for boys and girls) that their children or grandchildren no longer want, please deposit them in the Library as you head to town or attend Junior baseball games.
Aerial and ground surveys are underway in several locations across northern Ontario as the Nuclear Waste Management Organization moves through its current set of investigations of 18 areas mapped out over the last year by the NWMO as "potentially suitable" for a deep geological repository for high level nuclear waste. As of January 2015, over 300,000 hectares had been "withdrawn" from mineral exploration or other changes to land tenure "while the Nuclear Waste Management Organization conducts preliminary field assessment activities".
They’re catching on, mini lending libraries have been announced in Cameron Grove, Tout’s Grove, and now, Gordon Street. A great idea and those instrumental in installing them are to be congratulated.
We are still looking for more volunteers for Junior Baseball. Summer is HERE and there are many weeks that still require a volunteer to help out.

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.
