Well, now that Music in the Fields is over, we can breath a sigh of relief. It’s great that we get all these artists here to entertain all those who come from far away and injest our community with lots of money, but it certainly is nice when we’re back to normal and peace reigns once again. We do hope that the weekend was as successful as it appeared to be. We also look forward to hearing how well financially things went, but that may take a few weeks for all the bills to be added up and taken care of. Congratulations to all the great volunteers who made the weekend such a success.

Ron Oswald was all smiles as he cut the ribbon to reopen the bridge that now bears his family name.

Oswald was joined by about a hundred family and supporters as the Chesley Main Street Bridge was officially opened and renamed the Oswald Bridge, in recognition of generations of public service.

The 86-year old Oswald was a councillor in the former Elderslie Township and the final mayor of Chesley before becoming the first mayor of the amalgamated Arran-Elderslie, and also served as Bruce County warden in 2006.

On August 30, My Muskoka Now reported a sighting of the invasive gypsy moth in Ontario’s Parry Sound. Originally found throughout Europe and Asia, this deciduous-destroying insect was brought to North America in the late 1860s by Leopold Trouvelot, a French artist and amateur entomologist, in an attempt to establish a silk industry in the United States. But the insect escaped from Trouvelot’s laboratory in Boston, Massachusetts, thriving and multiplying in the nearby hardwood ecosystem.

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.
