BBCA BBQ Sold out

Fellow Beachers, thanks to Donna Tiernan and Heather McGregor Brown and their ticket sales ability we have another sold out BBQ. There will be 511 people at this year's version of our annual affair.

We've come a long way from the days of dragging BBQs to the club house and the Dads flipping burgers and hot dogs while the families sat on blankets and socialized with neighbours.

See everyone on Saturday,

Brian MacEachern

Bruce Beach BBQ

Baseball at Bruce Beach

Baseball Batter For those who were at the season opener last weekend you witnessed Bruce Beach baseball at its best.   Imagine if you will Mike Buchanan on the mound pitching for the game.  Bottom of the 9th (or whatever inning Gerry says it is).  The score is 14 to 11.  The bases are getting fuller but somehow the game is lost as the opposition just can’t sustain any traction.  We all retire for a well-deserved beer or two.  Just another day in paradise known as Bruce Beach.

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.
