A full day of activities was planned and Central West Region branch members came through in support of another successful Annual Regional Meeting. It was encouraging to have a number of first time participants making a total of thirty-six in attendance.

Special features included branch presentations on genealogy, Outreach and Education, and the growth of the Loyalist Burial Site Plaque projects. We are privileged to have Dominion President Fred Hayward as a member of the Central West Region. His analogy of our association to a reservoir of information emphasized the combined resources available to us. Advances in the Dominion website under the direction of Doug Grant UE have proven instrumental in placing important executive information at our fingertips. One area of focus in 2010 is the Loyalist Directory, a project begun in 2004.

Our guest speaker Glenn Stott provided a remarkable glimpse into information gleaned from War Losses Claims of 1812 - 1814. Along with interesting facts he entertained with personal observations about his favourite 1812 Canadian heroes.

Funds received over and above the 2010 meeting expenses will be donated to the Loyalist Scholarship Fund. Thank you to all who assisted in making this day a success. The 2011 Regional Meeting will take place April 16 at the Westmount Library, London, Ontario.
