“The Sea Cadet Years on Georgian Bay”

Meet the Author, Bornnie Rourke, who has been working for several years with former Sea Cadets from the 1940s and 1950s, who attend Princess Alice and Queen Elizabeth Camps on Minnicognashene and Beausoleil Islands. Their stories are very interesting pertaining to military training and life on Georgian Bay for nearly 11,000 cadets. A DVD will be presented by Bonnie as well as Midland Sea Cadets will be on hand to provide colour and naval league flavour to the celebration. The book will retail for $45.00 and will be another outstanding contribution to the history of Georgian Bay, its people and communities.

2.00pm – 4.30 pm at the Museum

  1. Was one of the seamen from HMCS York in 1943 that opened Princess Alice Camp on Minnicog. Gave info to Bonnie which was in the early part of the book. My wife, whom I was dating in ’43, accompanied me to the opening ceremony of the book and the dinner following and it was great to meet some of those who had attended the camp in later years.
