Where is Gov. Simcoe Branch member Jo Ann Tuskin?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Jo Ann has done twenty or more presentations about the Loyalists in several of the recent years, mostly to grade 3/4 or 6/7/8 classes of students in the Greater Toronto Area. She has been invited also to speak to Senior's Groups and Service Clubs. London and Western Ontario Branch UELAC asked her to address them at a regular meeting on Nov. 14, 2017. She is pictured here with Branch President Carol Childs and Treasurer Jim Stewart – who just happens to be a 3rd and 4th cousin. ]

Anglicans Speak Inglis

Where are Nova Scotia Branch members Brian and Ann McConnell?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Brian and Ann visited historic St. Mary's Anglican Church, one of the oldest churches in Nova Scotia, and the second Anglican Church to be consecrated in British North America. This classical Georgian era church was completed in 1790 and consecrated by Bishop Charles Inglis, the first Bishop of Nova Scotia. Inglis lived many years at his estate in Auburn, an area settled by Loyalists in 1784, and was closely involved in the construction process. The Church continues to house an active congregation. The church, cemetery and property are included in a provincial historical designation. ]

Harrison Garrison

Where are Edmonton Branch members Joshua and Skyler Harrison?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Joshua and Skyler are at Garrison Cemetery in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia at the monument bench dedicated to black loyalist Rose Fortune. Rose, a Black Loyalist originally from the US, is best-known for her talent as a businesswoman at a time when neither women nor Black persons were encouraged to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities and when the feminist movement in Canada was decades away.

Upsilon to Epsilon

Where are Gerry and Pat Adair with their five children?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Gerry, Pat and (L-to-R) Robert, Jennifer, Pat, Sandra, Gerald, Karen, and Christina are at the family farm near Maryfield, Saskatchewan, for Thanksgiving. The stained glass which fits so appropriately in their front window was one of the prizes at the silent auction at the UELAC Conference 2017 this past June in London, Ontario. Glad they won the prize. ]
