Southwest Ontario Chapter
On September 26th, 2012 a tree planting ceremony was held at Doan's Cemetery on 2nd
concession in honour of the Queen's Jubilee. The Ontario Horticultural Society
has awarded one tree to each of its nine districts. The Doan group in Port
Colborne was one of the lucky receivers. We thought that since it had to
celebrate the monarchy it would be most appropriate to plant the tree in the
United Empire Loyalist cemetery here in Port Colborne. If you were at the International Reunion in
Plymouth, Massachusetts you will remember the information about Jerry Fisher and
his work in getting the cemetery recognized as a United Empire Loyalist Cemetery
and that ultimately renamed as the Doan's Cemetery.
Pictures of the ceremony have been sent to the Queen for the official Jubilee recordbook.
