The Kawartha Branch of the United Empire Loyalists’ Association of Canada (UELAC) has decided to make a small donation to your $300,000 restoration project. It is fitting that since the Old Hay Bay Church was built by United Empire Loyalists in 1792, that Loyalists of today donate to continue the legacy that our Loyalist forefathers started. We have many Loyalist ancestors in our Kawartha Branch, including many who were given land grants in the Cataraqui Townships; particularly Ernestown, Fredericksburg and Adolphustown (Dafoe, Embury, Ketcheson, Weese, Holcomb, Ross, Fraser, Finkle, Parks, Hough, Sharp, Van Alstine…….etc.etc.)
We wish you and your trustees great success in this restoration project. We will be attending your August 26 service, at 3 pm as we have done for the last several years.
