Member George Thomson of Burlington is also active in the Steamship Historical Society of America and, as organizer of that group's upcoming meeting in this area he has passed along details in order that T.M.H.S. members may participate.
The meeting activities will centre around Tobermory, Ontario. The first item will be a cruise on Saturday June 19th by a local launch to Flowerpot Island, lunch being available. Dinner, location to be announced, will be served about 6:30 p.m., on Saturday and the speaker will be Capt. George Henderson, Shore Captain for the Reoch fleet.
The highlight of the weekend will be a Sunday cruise aboard the steamer NORISLE of the Owen Sound Transportation Co. Ltd. Sixty berths are available on a first-come-first-served basis for those who may wish to spend Saturday night aboard. (Motels are also available in Tobermory). The ship will sail at 7:00 a.m. for South Bay Mouth, returning at 2:00 p.m. in time for those taking the extended NORGOMA cruise to reach Owen Sound. Breakfast and lunch will be included in the steamer fare.
We have been specially invited to participate in this event, so be sure to reserve the weekend of June 19-20. A deposit on the cost will be required, so all interested should write to George Thomson, 875 Warwick Avenue, Burlington. The NORISLE fare should be about $7.00 including berth and passage.
