BBCA AGM Agenda 2017

Below is the agenda for our Annual General Meeting this Saturday at 10 am. I hope many of you are able to attend as we will have the opportunity to question both the Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation and the Mayor as to why they feel that the willow trees/bushes should be allowed to continue to flourish along the shoreline preventing many beach activities from happening. I feel a strong showing will help immeasurably in achieving the goal of returning the shoreline to a place for quiet walking as well as other activities.

Write today! Send a Letter to Minister McKenna and EA Agency

Thanks to the many replies and several sign-ons to the draft letter circulated last week offering advice to the Canadian federal minister of the environment on the conduct of the review of the "additional information" Ontario Power Generation was to have provided by the end of 2016 about their proposal to bury nuclear waste beside Lake Huron.

Ash Borer Information from Pine River Watershed Initiative Network

Information on the Emerald Ash Borer

The EAB has killed millions of trees in southwestern Ontario since 2002. This highly destructive insect poses a significant economic and environmental threat to all forests and urban areas. The EBA attacks all species of ash (except the Mountain Ash-not a true ash). Here's some information on the signs to look for, and some resources for inoculations, if you wish to try and save your ash tree.

BBCA Nuclear Survey Results

Dear Association Members,   On behalf of your executive I am pleased to provide the results of the survey that was conducted in April.   I would like to express our thanks to Chris Martyn and the Ipsos Reid team that designed the surveystructure, conducted the outreach and tabulated the results. We are very fortunate to have had their expert assistance.  

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.

No polls have been created.
