final design of new bayfield bridge discussed at ROMA

IMG_9444Work to clear the trees in the MTO right-of-way, along the banks on either end and sides of the Bayfield Bridge, began near the end of January. The site restoration of impacted areas following construction will be included in the project’s landscaping plan, which is currently being finalized. This image taken on Jan. 27 is a visible reminder that construction to replace the existing bridge built in 1949 is scheduled to commence in the fall of 2019 according to information provided on the bayfieldriverbridges.ca website.

Deputy Mayor Jim Fergusson, Bayfield Ward Councilor Bill Whetstone and Chief Administrative Officer Kyle Pratt joined more than 1,000 rural municipal officials from across the province at the 2019 Rural Ontario Municipal Association (ROMA) Conference held in Toronto, Jan. 27-29.

Coming six months after the change in provincial government, the conference focused on the pressing challenges and emerging opportunities facing rural communities in Ontario. The Premier, as well as leaders of the NDP, Liberal and Green Party spoke to the audience.
In addition to the conference program, Bluewater officials took part in municipal delegation meetings with provincial ministries to discuss local needs and priorities. These included meetings with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing to discuss the Annual Repayment Limit, and the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) to discuss concerns with regards to final design of the Bayfield Bridge.

At the MTO meeting, Bluewater representatives addressed concerns such as sidewalk widening, barriers to prevent snow build up on the sidewalk, lighting, accessibility to the river flats and how the bridge is very important to the future of Bluewater.

“It’s not just a bridge for us. Bayfield had the largest recreational marina on Lake Huron, it’s the gateway to our community, and downtown businesses and separates a portion of Bayfield,” said Whetstone.

According to Whetstone, the discussions were very well received by Ministry officials, with Parliamentary Assistant Kinga Surma stating that she hears Bayfield is a beautiful area and they will work together with Bluewater in the development of the final design.

It is expected that regular meetings will continue between the municipality and the MTO to discuss the Bayfield Bridge.

IMG_0335To recycle or not to recycle? A pertinent question for the current age in which we live. Not sure what the best practises are? Find out at a special event hosted by Blue Bayfield at the Bayfield Community Centre on Monday, Feb. 11. (Photo by Jack Pal)  

Please note that this presentation has been cancelled and will be reschedule in the spring. 

Blue Bayfield is pleased to host an informative presentation by the Bluewater Recycling Association (BRA) on the recycling challenges faced in today’s society of the over-use of single use plastic especially in the food industry.

Do you get confused over what goes into your Blue Box these days? You are not alone, so let’s get together on Monday, Feb. 11 at 1 p.m. at the Bayfield Community Centre where we will review and discuss Bluewater recycling challenges.

Come out and hear what can be recycled and what cannot be recycled with help from Wendy Yamamoto-Chapman, Special Projects coordinator with BRA. Joining her will be the President of BRA, Francis Villeux. He has led the development, costing and optimization of recycling and waste management programs in more than 80 municipalities. He has developed a number of operation and economics analysis models and guidelines, which can assist municipalities in planning 3Rs programs and improve economics through reduced costs and improved efficiencies. Villeux will review challenges faced by BRA today in the ever changing world of food packaging and use of plastics.

Blue Bayfield members will also introduce some amazing products that can replace the use of single-use plastics at the grocery store, as well as storage of food in the fridge and so much more!

If you have any questions about the presentation, please contact Sandy Scotchmer at 519 565-2830.

Life Long Learners needs experts to share knowledge 

Life Long Learners is coming to Bayfield and to create a chapter experts, teachers, instructors, professors or people with PHDs on interesting or academic subjects are now being sought.

People who are retired, or semi-retired, and would love to continue to teach/share their expertise with others are needed.

Life Long Learners is very popular in local communities including Grand Bend and Waterloo as well as further afield in such states as Florida, due to the condensed nature of the baby boomer population in these areas, who enjoy stimulating learning.

Professionals interested in sharing their knowledge, in lecture form, with other retired or curious people would be perfect for the program. This series is not intended to be a “hands on” or “learn to” experience, but rather a stimulating classroom/academic “lecture-with-discussion” style with an accompanying Power Point Presentation.

Anyone with experience in teaching Arts, Architecture, Business, Science, Design, Psychology, Medicine, Climate/Nature, Technology, History, Travel, Music, Literature, Politics, Archaeology, Photography, Oceanography, Engineering, Animals, Law, or any other subject that may be of interest to others is asked to contact Leslee Squirrell, Designer/ Professor/Entrepreneur/Artist at Leslee@lsqbydesign.ca

She will facilitate a meeting to discuss the concept, use of the Bayfield Town Hall, subject matter, fees and execution in early Spring, with the six-week series to commence this summer.

Squirrel would like to encourage everyone to please pass this on to friends and family who may be interested in delivering an interesting subject, or has organizational skills to help manage this new group.

Interested “learners” are asked to stay tuned to the Bayfield Breeze for further announcements.

TAKE A  LOOK at bayfield in anticipation of heritage event 

IMG_3141

The 2019 Ontario Heritage Conference (OHC) will be held in beautiful Bluewater and Goderich in just 114 days.

It is noted on the OHC website that, “The conference theme is heritage economics and features an exciting program focused on how the agricultural, marine, industrial and tourist economies in Bluewater and Goderich have shaped the built and natural heritage of these communities and, more recently, the interplay between heritage and tourism.”

Bayfield is going to be an important presence at the annual Ontario Heritage Conference which will be coming to Ontario’s West Coast May 30 to June 1. To generate some excitement and to allow area residents to reflect on their heritage several local history buffs have come together to create a feature called, “Take a Look”. They will be providing village anecdotes in the weeks leading up to the conference. This week’s edition is provided by Jane Davidson.

Our village of Bayfield in the 1830s was a village of fishermen and area farmers bringing grain to be milled. Cows wandered, grazing the grassy patches on Main Street, returning to their homes for milking at the end of the day.

Fast forward to the 1920s when the village was “discovered” by summer visitors and cottages were built along Bayfield Terrace and Tuyll Street. There was always an air of peace and tranquility over the village which made it attractive to outsiders and hardworking families, needing a summer break.

Wars one and two passed us by, taking some of our young men forever.

Then, in 1982 thanks to county architects Chris Borgal and Nick Hill and the Local Advisory Committee of Architectural Conservancy (LACAC), the Heritage District was formed taking in Main Street and the village core. That same year Bayfield was featured in Century Home magazine as a desirable place in which to live, spend a holiday or even, come on a day trip.

And then most recently, in 2005 we celebrated with our first “Doors Open” – provincial event - giving many a look into historic homes and businesses.

IPM 2017 gives back to county

P8250056IPM 2017 realized a profit of half a million dollars and as a result many of the stakeholders and beyond will benefit. Money is now being given back to the residents of Huron County in a variety of ways including legacy scholarships. (Submitted photo)

In 2012 Huron County Plowing Enthusiasts planted the seed of hosting the 100th International Plowing Match (IPM) in 2017 to help celebrate Huron County and Canada’s 150th birthday. Once planted, active participation surged through the lead up years with the contribution of time, talent and resources. The residents of Huron now have the opportunity to reap the benefit of IPM 2017's many successes.

The vision and core values that guided the IPM 2017 group included hosting an entertaining and educational event for all ages that focused on the agricultural, cultural and tourism sectors. One emphasis was to showcase the county to encourage visitors to return to visit, live or work in Huron. Connecting the communities and citizens within Huron County through involvement and volunteering was evident as community minded residents rose to the occasion.

The final mission was to leave a legacy within Huron County. Over 220 beautiful, unique and meaningful Barn Quilts is the first legacy piece that will be enjoyed for years to come. And because IPM 2017 realized a profit of half a million dollars, many of the stakeholders and beyond will benefit.

It is rewarding for IPM 2017 to now be giving back to the residents of Huron County. In 2018, IPM committees donated $100,000 to 55 different charities or organizations that benefit the citizens of Huron County. Thirty-one service clubs or organizations that assisted at the match were also compensated $40,000 in total.

In 2019, four separate non-profit organizations that will touch the lives of Huron County residents in one way or another have been identified to receive a onetime donation. Huron County Food Bank Distribution Centre, which helps to make hunger non-existent in the community, will receive $20,000 to fund a new delivery van. This service vehicle will transport volunteers and food to towns/villages that don’t currently have a food bank, transfer supplies for soup kitchens and give opportunity for volunteers to go to communities and provide cooking classes. Jessica’s House and Huron Residential Hospice will each receive $20,000 to help them provide quality care at the end of life’s journey. In addition, the hospices were the recipients of the collection from the IPM 2017 Worship Service ($5,600) and a bench to place at each home. The Oncology Dept Kitchenette at the Wingham and District Hospital will receive $20,000 so nourishment for cancer patients and family members can be provided in this space. This clinic provides specialized cancer care close to home and services Huron and Bruce Counties.

As well IPM 2017 is creating a Living Legacy which will be in existence for 25 years. The amount of $250,000 will be invested with principal and interest being distributed yearly to candidates who have completed their first year of post-secondary training and are enrolled in their second year of any College, University, and School of the Trades or Apprenticeship program. An application collecting information surrounding community involvement, academics and financial need will be part of the application process with several scholarships being awarded each year. In addition, funds can be accessed for graduating students returning to Huron County to find employment or to open a business. This Living Legacy Fund will help to impact area youth, one of the greatest assets in Huron County as they are the future of area communities.

IPM 2017 is a powerful story of an initial vision realized through partnerships, innovation, sourcing solutions, collaborative efforts, and community engagement. The final chapter ends with financial success to share for years to come. This legacy will live on well into the future.

Coastal Watchers

Volunteers are needed for the 2019 Coast Watchers Citizen Science Monitoring Program.

Do you love and care for the Great Lakes? Do you find yourself strolling along the lakeshore noticing changes from day to day? The Coastal Centre is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to monitor the Lake Huron and Georgian Bay shorelines for the 2019 summer season. The Coast Watchers Volunteer Monitoring Program has been an ongoing initiative at the Coastal Centre for over a decade.

“Coast Watchers are the eyes and ears of the coast, providing insight on natural processes and potential threats to shoreline ecosystems,” said Tineasha Brenot, Coastal technologist with the Centre. “Our volunteers are the first to notice serious concerns such as algae blooms, garbage wash-ups and many other stressors that could affect human or wildlife health.”

Coast Watchers will collect information on wind and wave conditions, temperature, wildlife, invasive species and other important information to understand coastal health. Through the collection of this information over time, the Coastal Centre is able to collaborate with partners to better understand and protect Lake Huron’s constant changing shoreline.

As a Coast Watcher you will walk along your favorite section of beach collecting information once per week in the summer. Participants will receive monitoring equipment and training from staff at the Coastal Centre and be asked to complete simple data sheets and submit a monthly report. They will contribute to the collection of scientific information to a long-term monitoring program and help to protect our Great Lakes. They will also have the opportunity to learn more about the shoreline through an optional webinar series.

Training and equipment will be provided in April 2019. Weekly monitoring occurs between May 1 and Oct. 30.

Anyone interested in becoming a Coast Watcher or hearing more about the program should contact the Coastal Centre at coastwatchers@lakehuron.ca or call 226 421-3029.

"who's got cabin fever?" brought  families out to play and socialize 

192A8750The Bayfield Town Hall was a very busy spot on Friday when Bayfield parents and caregivers took it upon themselves to get out and give their littles a great big play date! The perfect answer to all those extra cold Snow Days of late!  

192A8778Joe Genoch had some fun getting creative with Play-doh.

192A8799Olivia Saunders found a paper snowflake mixed in with the toy trains and tracks.  

192A8801Parents brought items for the children to share including a lot of Play-doh.  

192A8802Crafting was definitely an option at "Who's got Cabin Fever?"

PHOTOS BY DIANNE BRANDON AND STORY BY MELODY FALCONER-POUNDER

The Polar Vortex and the resulting multiple snow days led Bayfield’s Tara Hessel to organize an impromptu event at the Bayfield Town Hall on Friday, Feb. 1. It also happened to be a Professional Development Day for students belonging to both the Avon Maitland and Huron-Perth Catholic school boards.

"Who's got Cabin Fever" saw the town hall filled with a whole bunch of littles and their parents and caregivers. Parents brought items for the children to share – a bouncy castle, craft materials, Play-doh, a parachute, a pop-up tent, wooden trains and tracks, bean bag toss and dress up clothes. While the morning was filled with active play for the youngsters and some socialization for the adults, the afternoon provided a quieter atmosphere with a matinee movie complete with popcorn.

The Optimist Club of Bayfield sponsored the hall and projector rental while the Bayfield Breeze provided the popcorn maker and popcorn fixings.

192A8784Everly Keys took a break from playing to have a snack.

192A8788Harvey Heard was disguised as a pirate.  

192A8796Mikaela Ryan found a balloon to play with.

192A8772 Amelia Johnston was pretty in pink.
