Col. Edward Jessup.
The Annual Meeting in the spring featured Judge Charles Anderson at an over-flow gathering at the Athens Anglican Church Hall. Ruth Bracken and Eleanor Irvine were present to receive their certificates.
Our Charter meeting in October moved to Spencerville Presbyterian Church where Brad Hubbard spoke on the restoration of old houses. We also had a tour of the adjoining cemetery where several generations of the Loyalist Drummond family are buried. Certificates were presented to Ron Tackaberry UE for himself as well as his mother. Lyle Johnston accepted a certificate on behalf of his son, Timothy, as a descendant of Loyalist Timothy Buell UE.
Others receiving certificates during the year were Barry Livingstone UE, John Brown UE, Pat Mackie UE, Rod MacDonald UE and Eleanor Beardsley UE.
Throughout the year maintenance continued on the Wiltse Pioneer Cemetery. Contacts continue to be sought for our book on houses of the Loyalist period. For the second year, we presented a bursary to a history student at Brockville Collegiate Institute in memory of the late Edgar Clow UE. The recipient this year was Amber Brown from Front of Yonge. We also have Loyalist grave markers that we are selling.
On Sunday August 27th, the Colonel Edward Jessup Branch UELAC held its Annual Church Parade at St. John's Anglican Church in Lyn, ON. After the service members toured the adjacent cemetery and the church grounds. Photos were taken by Fraser Carr.
