Friday, March 24, 2017

With deep sorrow we notify those who knew and loved her of the passing of Marilyn Dunlop on March 24, 2017 at 88 years of age. Her kindness, wise guidance and gracious spirit will be greatly missed by her daughter Stephanie Clark and her husband Doug, her son Doug and his wife Barb Moffatt, as well as all in her extended family and her many friends. Marilyn was born on May 5 1928 in Detroit, MI to Florence and James Bell, but she grew up in London, ON.

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

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.

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.
