Where in the World is UELAC?

“Where in the World is UELAC?” Where in the world are YOU?? With your help, we hope to find out! Take a travel photo of yourself wearing UELAC gear and we'll feature it online and in an upcoming issue of Loyalist Trails.

First, put yourself in the picture with UELAC Promotional gear. Then, send your photo to Doug Grant Loyalisst Trails@uelac.org and we'll add you to our UELAC sightings gallery below.

In the meantime, browse our recent submissions below and see if you recognize the people, the places, or both. Click any photo for a larger resolution.

Where in the World?

Yurt Up

Where are Doug Grant and Nancy Conn, Gov. Simcoe Branch?

Where in the World?
Where in the World?

Answer:   [ While travelling on the Trans-Siberian Express route which goes from Moscow to Beijing, two days were spent in Mongolia. One night was off the train, either in a hotel in Ulan Bator or in a Yurt. Doug and Nancy chose the latter. It was hardly roughing it as had been expected in this camp of about thirty yurts. The wood stove made it warm and cozy in the evening, but it was chilly by morning. The scenery was rather spectacular in this valley between mountain ranges. Yurt camps are rather popular – four in this one photo. ]

Dearly Beloved

Where are Susan Hutchins (Bicentennial Br.), Ruth Nicholson and Jean Rae Baxter (Hamilton Br.), and Peter & Carol Davey (Kingston Branch)?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ If the title isn't a dead giveaway and this second photo doesn't help, these photos were taking at the wedding of Jean Rae Baxter, UE, to Leigh Smith, on Oct. 22, 2016. The reception was held at Queen's University Hall, Kingston. Congratulations to Jean and Leigh from the UELAC! ]

Reach Out, Reach Up, Reach Forward

Where are Carl Stymiest and Mavia Pickett?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ They are pictured supporting the Vancouver Branch outreach display at the B.C. Highland Games in Coquitlam, June 2016. ]

Hatt's On, Hatt's Off

Where are Hamilton Branch members Pat Blackburn, Ruth Nicholson, Paul Lewington, and Marilyn Hardsand?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ The four Hamilton Branch members attended the re-dedication of the Cooley-Hatt Cemetery, Ancaster in Sept. 2016. This pioneer cemetery was saved from being part of a new housing development, mainly through the efforts of Rick Hatt of Niagara, a descendant of Richard Hatt. Note that Richard Hatt was not a Loyalist himself, but married the daughter of Loyalist Preserved Cooley. (See the plaque up close.) ]
