Lucknow November 6th, Ripley & Lakeshore November 7th

The pick up is restricted to bagged leaves only, and bags should be put out by 7:00 a.m. Also, bags must not weigh more than 11 kg (25 lbs).
Leaves are accepted free-of-charge at the Huron Landfill site year-round; 2087 Concession 6 E.
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.
Fellow beachers, below is a questionnaire that you may wish to complete. I hope you may find it informative.

Re: Ontario Power Generation’s Proposal for a DGR at Kincardine Ontario, for
the burial and abandonment of Low- & Intermediate-Level nuclear wastes
A message from our Executive Director
Welcome, and thank you for taking the opportunity to read our monthly newsletter. This month’s message comes with mixed emotions. For those of you unaware, Geoff Peach, a founder of the Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation passed away recently. Geoff was a strong proponent of coastal environmental preservation and promotion. His ground-breaking work has left a huge footprint on the landscape of Lake Huron. For details about Geoff and to donate to his memorial fund please visit our webpage.
Happy New Year from the Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation!I hope you enjoy this month’s edition. It is an educational article describing what happens to your lake during these cold winter months when most of us are enjoying the warmth of our homes.
The Coastal Centre has been busy planning for 2017. Some of the main programs we are planning for are:
As your historian, I am collecting information on dances held at the BB Clubhouse. Please send me any memories of dances you attended there, including the years they occurred and a description of the event, if you have not already done this. Thanks.
Please include any photos you might have.
Ainsdale Golf Course has been sold to Kincardine native and former U.S. collegiate golfer Taylor Candler (Schmidt) and her husband Charles, a golf pro who is originally from Sanford, Florida. The Candlers, who currently reside in Wichita, Kansas, with their 4 ½ month old son Wyatt, will take over the 18-hole golf course on Jan.
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.
January 3, 2017 - On December 28, 2016, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency received the additional information from Ontario Power Generation (OPG) in response to an information request made by the Minister of Environment and Climate Change on February 18, 2016 regarding the Deep Geologic Repository for Low and Intermediate Level Radioactive Waste Project. The additional information is publically available on the Canadian Environmental Assessment Registry Site (the registry) at the following location: http://www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca/050/document-eng.cfm?document=116741.
We or Terry O’Hagan are NOT the people to contact concerning the power outages between concession 8-10. He is not the scheduler. It is unfortunate we mentioned his name. He an Ontario One employee who was willing to share information with us. We have searched on line and if you go to this web site you can find the information below. You can telephone the number below. If you are searching for further information the incident Id 4837129 is important.
Hope this is helpful.
There are two things you should know about this plan.
- Every attempt in the world to bury nuclear waste has failed to contain its deadly contents.
- More than 40 million people rely on the Great Lakes for drinking water.
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.

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.
