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 - it would be great if you were wearing UELAC gear, but not mandatory - 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, provide a short description of your surroundings - something historical is great, again not obligatory - and send your photo and description to Doug Grant 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. Mouse and click the space between the square brackets to reveal the description.

Lord & Lady of Hosts

Where are Pat and Gerry Adair, of Saskatchewan Branch?

Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Pat and Gerry Adair hosted the annual UELAC conference in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Here, on the way to the closing church service, they stand before the entrance to Crescent Park, a “jewel of the Prairies.” Encompassing 28 acres, more than six city blocks, the original plan dates to 1911. The Cenotaph, or Cross of Sacrifice, the World Wars memorial, was unveiled here in 1923. Further development of the park was a relief project, funded by the federal government, to provide work for people during the Depression. The project employed up to 200 men, working for 25 cents a day plus a meal ticket. ]
