The BlueWater Chapter will host the Annual General Meeting for the National Chapters in Windsor in 2016. We are still looking for volunteers to assist us for the weekend of the convention. The dates are May 27 – May 30, 2016. The National Convention will be held at the Holiday Inn on Huron Church Road in Windsor. The volunteer time required is very minimal and you will be rewarded with an invitation to attend our banquet dinner on the Sunday evening.
You will notice that there is a request notice for annual dues for 2016. These monies are what enable us the continue with our newsletter and other activities within our chapter.
It is with great sadness we report the passing of Ronald McIntyre of Chatham and Thomas Mogg of Windsor. Our condolences go out to his family.

Thank you to everyone for attending the Annual Golf Tournament this year. Another success event with non perishable food items donated to the Chatham Food Bank.
Sarnia and Chatham areas
We would like to have a volunteer from these 2 areas to act as a corespondent for our newsletter. This will simply entail you notifying us of any events or activities that are taking place in your area that are part of our Heritage Club. For example notification of an member who has passed away or any other activities that may be going on in your areas.Anyone wishing to help in this regard, can notify me either by email or telephone. I would like some feedback on the possibility of arranging a golf tournament or other events in the Sarnia area.
I would like to thank you all for your previous commitments and activities. It is our hope that we can make our club one of the most outstanding in the country.
