JOHNSTON, Hooks - Cottage 7

Monday, September 4, 2017

Hooks Johnston of McLean, Virginia, beloved husband of Betsy and father of Mary, Allison, Hooks and David, passed away on September 4, 2017. He died following a courageous almost 30 year battle with an auto immune condition that affected his joints and ultimately his heart. The son of Hooks K. Johnston, Jr. and Su-san Y. Johnston of North Andover, Massa-chusetts, and brother to Amy Desel and Laura Simpson, he was born in Manches-ter, Connecticut, on July 6, 1962. Raised in Glastonbury, Connecticut, he graduated from Glastonbury High School, Brown University and Harvard Business School. He married Elizabeth (Betsy) Randolph Edmunds of Richmond Virginia in 1988, and together they had four children: Marietta Yates Johnston, Allison Wight Johnston, Hooks Kelley Johnston, IV and David Spencer Johnston. He resided in McLean, Virginia for the past 29 years as a venture capitalist, corporate executive and philanthropist. He was a man of strong faith who lived his life in God's service, giving all who knew him an example of grace, humility, and kindness.

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.

Emergency Notice - Voting Period Had Been Extended

The Township of Huron-Kinloss Voting Period has been extended 1 full day until 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 23, 2018.


Township of Huron-Kinloss

As of approximately 5:45 p.m. tonight, due to the technical difficulties experienced by Dominion Voting System the electors of the Township of Huron-Kinloss have experienced delays in internet and telephone voting. Large time delays were being experienced on both the telephone and internet methods of election.

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

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.

No polls have been created.
