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

20 Years of Bruce Beach Tennis Lessons Picture

This year we are celebrating 20 years of our tennis lessons on Bruce Beach. We would like to invite all our past and current “ students” to join us on Saturday at the annual barbeque, for a group picture. If you could be available around 5:30 PM, we can get a picture before the food hits the table.

Looking forward to seeing all of you on Saturday!

Bruce Beach Tennis Tournament Results

In spite of a short rain delay, the spirit and enthusiasm of the 16 teams in the competition was not dampened. The skilled play of our teams brought many oohs and ahhs from the crowd of beachers who came down to be part of the fun and action. The tournament closed with an exciting final that had people on the edge of their lawn chairs and benches.

McCosh Library

McCosh Lending Library

Located on the south side of the Club House.

To entice some "northenders" there is a copy of Baseball for Dummies!!
Don't worry it's mostly pictures...

If you could pass this along to the masses it would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Junior Baseball Volunteers Needed Now

We are still looking for more volunteers for Junior Baseball.  Summer is here and we have three weeks that still require a volunteer to help out.  The weeks we need a volunteer are: 

July 20 - 24th - NEXT WEEK 
Aug 24 - 28th 
Aug 31st - Sept 3rd 

Please contact me at the phone numbers or emails listed below if you are able to help out. 

Children's Books for Little Book Library

The Little Book Library in Cameron Grove no longer has any children’s books(about ages 7-14). Apparently there has been more “taking” than “leaving”, which is a good sign that reading is taking place at Bruce Beach.  If anyone along the beach has a few children’s books(for boys and girls) that their children or grandchildren no longer want, please deposit them in the Library as you head to town or attend Junior baseball games.

NWMO Search For Nuclear Waste Burial Site Intensifies In Northern Ontario

Aerial and ground surveys are underway in several locations across northern Ontario as the Nuclear Waste Management Organization moves through its current set of investigations of 18 areas mapped out over the last year by the NWMO as "potentially suitable" for a deep geological repository for high level nuclear waste. As of January 2015, over 300,000 hectares had been "withdrawn" from mineral exploration or other changes to land tenure  "while the Nuclear Waste Management Organization conducts preliminary field assessment 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.
