MOFFATT, John Donald "Dint" - Cottage 102

Tuesday, July 3, 2018

John Donald Moffatt

After a rewarding life, and knowing he was loved by his family, friends and God, John Donald Moffatt (“Dint”) passed from this world to the next on Tuesday, July 3.  He was the son of Elizabeth and J. Melvin Moffatt and brother of Robert and Marjorie, who have gone before him. He and his wife Anne (nee McKillop) were classmates in the Western University School of Business graduating in 1953. Together they raised Sue (Rob Brison), Barb (Doug Dunlop) and Nancy who were blessed by their wise advice and endless support. He was a loving and playful grandfather to Meg (Scott Symes) and Mike, and enjoyed the energy of his great grand-children Evan and Jack Symes. In his careers with Simpsons Sears and later Dow Chemical, he modeled integrity and genuine friendship at work. He was a cheerful curler and was never happier than when he was in a boat, ideally at Bruce Beach.  He truly cherished all the good times and people in his life.  A devoted member of the Presbyterian Church, particularly St. Andrews in Etobicoke, and more recently Knox in Waterloo, he lived his faith.

Huron-kinloss Election 2018 Candidate Statements

I sent the following email out to find out the positions of the Huron-kinloss 2018 candidates:


Dear Candidates,

 
This message is being sent to all candidates who provided and shared their email address on huron-kinloss.com.
 
Do you have a campaign platform or other campaign statements that you are willing to share publicly on the BruceBeach.ca web site? Perhaps you have some material from the all candidates meeting? I leave it to each of you to determine and cover the issues that are important. Also, if you have a web site or other social media links that you are using that would be helpful too. 
 
Any information you provide may be shared with other Bruce Beach cottagers via a posting on the BruceBeach.ca web site. The information will not be edited, but may not all be used if there is too much. I suggest that something less than 1000 words would be appropriate and links to additional information can be included. 
 
My intent is provide information from all the candidates in one place for other cottagers and have the posting available, by Oct 3, 2018. If you have not responded by Oct 3rd then that will be noted in the web site posting. You will each be sent a link to the posting on the web site once it's complete. 
 
I wish each of you great success with your campaigns.
 
Regards,
Doug Dunlop

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.

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.
