January 2017


Hi and welcome to the first Signal for 2017

Shirl and I would like to wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year.

We ended the year on a positive note , with well attended dinners fun filled functions and even though we had low water in the fall , we still had a great boating season.

As you know the club will be closed for Jan, Feb, an March.. We WILL be open for the AGM on Sunday the 5th of Feb. Club will open at noon for those that would like to come down and visit with friends or have a drink before the meeting starts at 2 P M ( Toronto Humber Time . The parking lot will be plowed as necessary to give access to the south end BUT mainly for club house emergences.

The grand re-opening will again be a POT-LUCK on Fri March 31st. Mark this date on your calendar and look for that recipe that you told me about. I will have a new recipe from the Cabbage Patch in Samsula for you to try. Hope to see you at the official re-opening and start to the summer season.

Now here's something; At the start of World War 1, American financier August Belmont Jr. volunteered for the U.S. Army - at the age of 64. He served in France as a major in the Army Air Service. His wife was so proud that when one of their mares, Mahuhah, gave birth to a colt in 1917 , she named it in honor of her husband , not realizing that " Man o' War " would become one of the greatest racehorses of all time.

Almost a thousand years before Johannes Gutenberg introduced mechanical movable type to Europe, people in Asia were already printing messages set in type. The oldest recorded such piece, from China, translates as "Beware of Dog" ( go figure ) And it was the 20th century Swiss - American psychiatrist Elisabeth Kubler-Ross who said "People are like stained glass windows: They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light with-in."

Warm regards Ron.
