CIME is cooperative and agree in principle with the project. We provided an account of what was accomplished in Phase One of the reconstruction of the vault. We will give them information about the life and achievements of Sir John Johnson and a written statement of our Phase Two objectives.
We had our share of sorrow as two members died. Dick Eldridge UE, our Immediate Past President, died on Christmas Eve after a long and courageous battle with cancer. As a Past President of the Brome County Historical Society, Dick was instrumental in the restoration of the Samuel Gale Monument on the slopes of Gale Mountain in Shefford. He was also treasurer of the Johnson Vault Restoration Committee and we are sorry that he did not live to see the completion of the project. Audrey Bradshaw Craighead UE, a charter member of Sir John Johnson Centennial Branch, died on 26 October 2006. A retired school teacher and an active volunteer in the community, she also will be greatly missed.
In January and February many of our members attended a series of lectures given at Brome Missisquoi Historical Society by historian Jimmy Manson UE. One of particular interest was A study in Perseverance. Captain John Savage John Savage may refer to:

The exhibition entitled, "The Mystery of the Ruiter Ledgers of Philipsburg, Quebec 1799-1811," was presented courtesy of The Missisquoi Historical Society and Robert Galbraith and his wife, Phyllis Montgomery.
As we look forward to celebrating our fortieth anniversary we are reminded of the saying, "We have to know who we are today and look forward to what we may be in the future." It is important that our Branch of the UELAC UELAC United Empire Loyalists Association of Canada continues to flourish. Every member of the Branch is extremely important and each one, as well as President Adelaide Lanktree UE and her Executive, needs to be congratulated for a very successful year.
