Junior Baseball Volunteers Needed for Last Two Weeks of Summer

Bruce Beachers, 
  
Due to a last minute change of schedules, we need volunteers to lead the Junior Baseball for the last two weeks of the summer - starting TOMORROW!! 

Even if you can only help out for a couple of days during the week that is OK.  We will patch together full weeks with multiple people if required.  .  

Leslie Rays Presentation - Kincardine Pipe Band Trip to Netherlands

“Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13

7600 Canadian soldiers who took part in the liberation of the Netherlands  & who lie buried in British Commonwealth cemeteries in that country are testament to this Bible passage.

In May of this year, the KSPB was privileged to visit the Netherlands to take part in the 70th anniversary commemorations of the Liberation of that country and the end of the Second World War.

The Dutch people were wonderful hosts who treated us royally. Before discussing the band trip, I would first like to give some background on the Netherlands and the role of our troops in its liberation.

Church Grove notice

Last Sunday Leslie Ray, long time Bruce Beacher and member of both the Churchgrove and the Kincardine Pipe band spoke eloquently of her trip to the Netherlands in May to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of the Netherlands. Leslie used the opportunity to clearly explain the close connection that has existed, undimmed with the passage of time, between Canadians and Dutch. She did it with humour, gravitas and emotion.. I am hoping that Leslie will allow us to circulate the text of her speech to the beach through Ross's distribution.

Sunday's Storm (Aug 2, 2015)

We were very lucky on Sunday to have survived the storm with no persons injured. Or at least none that I'm aware of. Unfortunately there was damage done to some cars and cottages. I think we all need to be more thoughtful for our own safety in the future. After seeing some trees that appeared to have been twisted off the stump and seeing huge trees that had been tossed around like twigs we need to understand the danger of standing by a window watching a severe storm like this.

Found: Bruce Beach Kitten

Bruce Beach Kitten A kitten was brought to baseball this morning, found by a family, perhaps an orphan from the storm, I didn't get the whole story from the mass of kids adoring her. Long story short, I took the kitten home,I couldn't leave it there, and agreed to look after it and try to find it a home. Could you please send a mass email asking if anyone wants a kitten or know anyone missing a kitten? We are here until Friday at noon. If no one claims her or is interested we will take her home to Toronto Humane Society. I presume she is a barn kitty, she is gorgeous, sweet and calm, not at all feral or even nervous, and follows the kids everywhere. We are totally smitten with this kitten but are not keeping her (I repeat), not keeping her.

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.
