New Hydro poles/damage to property

You will recall that last fall Jody Larson sent us emails regarding Hydro One's power outages as they transferred service from the old poles to the new poles that they were installing.  As a result of the installation of the new pole on our property, numerous broken plastic shards were left.  My vehicle picked up a nail resulting in my having to replace the tire.  In my complaint to Hydro One, I was advised that if I wished to make a claim I could complete the online Customer Claim form with Quelmec Insurance Adjustors, which I did.  This past week while at the cottage I found 2 more nails

W5 DGR townhall

I just want to make sure that everyone knows about this extremely important upcoming event.

On the evening of Friday March 10 at the Legion Hall in Kincardine CTV is doing a W5 event hosted by Lloyd Robertson on the DGR. 

It is of great importance that we get a crowd out to this as OPG will have organized a high profile group to speak and we need to be there to ask questions at the mic and demonstrate numbers.

Matt at Environmental Defence Gala 4

Wow, do we have a lot to share in this month’s newsletter! The Coastal Centre has been very busy collaborating with environmental groups along our shoreline to protect your lake.

I had the opportunity to attend the Environmental Defense Gala in Toronto. We have had a planning workshop with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, met with Conservation Authorities, Healthy Lake Huron and the Bruce Peninsula Biosphere Association. We have made presentations to several of your municipal councils, have met with Pine River Watershed Initiative Network and the International Joint Commission.  We are doing all this in an effort to link all environmental groups along our shore to create a cohesive effort to protect and improve the health of Lake Huron.

Bruce Beach Rd Closed

Culvert Wash Out

Bruce Beach Rd is temporarily closed due to a culvert wash out between cottages 97 and 98, and as a result there is no through traffic from Concession 8 to 10.  Cottages 84 to 97 can access from Concession 8, and cottages 98 to 177 Bruce Beach Rd and those on Highland Dr may be reached from Concession 10.

Repair to the culvert will take place as soon as material is on site.

Emergency services have been notified.

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.
