      2) Nancy Island Welcome Centre Grand Opening - Thursday, May 24th - 11am

      Everyone is welcomed to the grand opening of the new multimillion dollar
      Welcome Centre located at Nancy Island Historic Site in Wasaga Beach,
      Ontario, Canada. Ontario Parks has replaced the orientation building at
      Nancy Island Historic Site in preparation of the upcoming War of 1812
      Bicentennial. Nancy Island has served as a historic site since 1928 and is
      the most viable and related site to the War of 1812 in Simcoe County and the
      Georgian Bay Region. It represents a major event during the War of 1812 -
      HMS Nancy's August 14, 1814 battle against three American schooners. The
      island houses the charred hull and artifacts of the HMS Nancy from this
      pivotal moment in Canadian history. The borders of Canada today are a direct
      result of the valiant struggle of the Nancy and her crew. The Wasaga Beach
      Welcome Centre, designed by Ontario Parks architect Matthew Harvey, houses a
      gift shop, staff offices, meeting space, tourist information, washrooms and
      interpretation relating to both Nancy Island and the natural resources of
      Wasaga Beach. The new War of 1812 interpretive displays will highlight
      Heroes of the War related to the Nancy story. For more information please

      4) New Book - "Brock's Agent" by Tom Taylor

      As America Plans to Invade Upper Canada A Lone British General Decides to
      Fight Back! - It's the eve of the War of 1812, and the United
      States is aiming to seize British North America. Thomas Jefferson declares
      that it will be a "mere matter of marching," but he hadn't counted on
      British Major General Isaac Brock. While Britain battles Napoleon in Europe
      and considers abandoning Upper Canada altogether, Brock begins forging the
      province into a fighting force and in the process engages the services of a
      young secret agent.

      After witnessing the Battle of Tippecanoe, Jonathan Westlake, a young man
      "ready to make his mark," returns to the town of York [now Toronto] from a
      fur trading expedition bringing hard intelligence of American preparations
      for war. Intervening in a scuffle to save a young woman's life, he appears
      to have unwittingly killed her stepfather. To escape arrest for murder,
      Westlake is now forced to join the British Army and pose as a fur trader
      while undertaking a vital secret mission for General Brock.

      In a frantic search for the girl he rescued, down Georgian Bay to Fort
      Detroit, Westlake discovers treachery in his own family circle. But his
      friends, a French Canadian named, Danny Lapointe, and a Shawnee native
      called Paxinos, will stand by him in a clash that may cost all of them their

      As nations and men battle for military supremacy in North America, these
      principal characters will fight to the death over love, independence, and a
      fortune in furs.

      Also coming out soon "Brock's Railroad"
