Port Elgin Mini Reunion Information

Hi Marston:

I am sending you some directions along with my telephone number, if you would please include on the website. I am also having street maps placed in everyone's room with certain locations highlighted along with a copy of the direction. (If you do not locate them in your room, please check the front desk. I apologize if the directions seem so detailed but I want to make sure everyone arrives without any problems. If anyone wants the driving directions to Port Elgin previously published on the
website, please e-mail me, or and I will forward them. As we said when we were kids, 9 more sleeps. I am including them as text in case an attachment does not work.


To Picnic Area ( Northshore Park) for 12:00 noon on Saturday

From the Colonial Motel turn right
From the Super 8 Motel, turn left

onto Goderich Street (aka Highway 21), travel down Goderich Street to Mill Street. Turn left onto Mill Street and travel down Mill Street to Harbour Street. (Please note the stop signs they can be difficult to see at times). Turn right onto Harbour Street and travel about 1 km down Harbour Street and you will see on your left, a blue and white sign
that reads "Northshore Launching & Fish Station, etc.". You can pull into this area and park in the large gravelled area by the fish station and then follow the pathway on the left alongside the mini railroad tracks through the trees to the covered pavilion for the picnic. It is not too far, depending on how much picnic supplies you have, or you can drive a
short distance ahead on Harbour Street and you will see small dirt parking area on your left and some can park there and unload if you wish. The pavilion is in a shaded area with picnic tables and washroomfacilities close by.

If you wish to purchase your lunch there is a fast food restaurant at the marina, within walking distance of the park, and located at the bottom of Mill Street.
