DSC_0616.jpeg

The Coastal Centre has grown since its incorporation as a non-profit in 1998.  The Coastal Centre has gone from managing a few grant projects a year with one full-time contractual Coastal Resource Manager to managing twenty-three projects in 2014-15 and a growing number of full-time and part-time staff members.

The hiring of an Executive Director has been a goal of the Board of Directors since 2005, and the current Board embarked upon a recruitment plan in the fall of 2015.  We received an overwhelming response to the job opening and feel fortunate to have had such a strong pool of applicants.

The Board of Directors are pleased to announce that Matt Meade has been selected to fill the position of Executive Director and will officially join our team on June 8, 2016.  Matt has a Honours BA Geography, Post Graduate GIS, and a Masters in Forestry from University of Toronto.  Matt lives in Port Elgin with his wife and  two young children.

Toronto Star Newspaper Delivery to Cottage

Out of curiosity the other day I Googled the Toronto Star, Home Delivery and completed a request to have the Star delivered to the cottage.

Surprise of surprises! The next morning the Star was at the end of our laneway.

And to add to the delight, the price for one month,on an introductory offer  for 6 months is $17.81 per month and you are able to cancel at any time.

Now, why am I promoting this?  Strictly because of a selfish motive. I am concerned that if not enough people subscribe that we may loose this home delivery.

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.
