WB History Committee Honored by Tiny Twp.

 Award Woodland Beach Property Owners' Association is proud and pleased to announce that the History Committee has been awarded Tiny Township's prestigious "Corrie Hamelin Memorial Community Volunteer Award".  (L-R) Tracey Price, Sheila Ryan, Gail Shrives, and Margaret Robinson were recognized on Oct. 26th at the Township's Volunteer and Sponsor Appreciation Gala.

"Footprints in the Sand - Woodland Beach Memories" represents more than three years of intensive labour - researching times and dates, collecting photographs, interviewing present and former residents and writing their stories.  In addition a multitude of hours were spent organizing, formatting and editing.  The end result has been an outstanding success.  The initial printing of 500 books was sold out immediately and a subsequent order of 100 more copies are now gone.  It is indeed a "limited edition".

The book was officially launched on the week-end of July 16/17 with a gala celebration of beach history.  The Committee prepared eye-catching display boards of photos, facts and memorabilia, all set out in the Bayshore Seniors' Hall.  Over 600 enthusiastic Woodland Beach friends enjoyed antique cars out front, a BarBQ in the back, and a nostalgic walk down the "Main Drag" with the Whitfield brothers.  Coincidentally, the Woodland Beach Church celebrated its 90th birthday with an Open House and evening of music.

We at Woodland Beach owe Marg, Tracey, Sheila and Gail a sincere thank you for chronicling our history and preserving it for future generations.  We are inordinately proud and appreciative of their accomplishment.
