I Am Sooo Going!!!

I just read my email and my Loyalist Trails came yesterday. There was an article in it about the 2010 Olympics and loyalist heritage. The article mentions an article in the Bicentennial Branch Newsletter by Ted Steele about the Doan family and some famous and infamous relations.

I was surprised to read the next article:

Doan Reunion and Aaron Doan UE Heritage Designation
The Port Colborne Heritage Committee will be honoring the name of Aaron Doan UE with a Heritage Designation and name change from Steele Cemetery to Doan Cemetery on Saturday July 10, 2010 @ 2:00 p.m. The Cemetery is located @ 2146 Second Concession Road, in the City of Port Colborne. This cemetery, which contains the family burial site, is on the original Crown Grant to Aaron Doan UE.
Doan descendants will be celebrating a family reunion on Sunday July 11, 2010 @ Bethel Community Centre, 2703 Chippawa Road, Port Colborne, Ontario. Family history information starting @ 10 a.m. with a pot luck lunch @ 12.00 noon.
If you need further information on the Doan Reunion or Cemetery Designation contact Jerry Fisher UE at 905-892-5477 email:

It just so happens that we'll be in the neighbourhood, we're going camping in the Kawarthas for two weeks and we'll be coming home that weekend, we'll be within fifty miles of Port Colborne so I plan on attending the reunion. I'm hoping my cousin Judy will go too, she lives up there. It will be great to meet all of the family north of Essex County and share our family history.
