Show and tell the world about your Tay!
The Friends of the Tay Watershed Association is preparing to publish the 2nd edition of its successful 'Tay Watershed Times'. The 1st edition came out three years ago to wide acclaim. This edition will feature the Town of Perth and its relationship with the Tay.
Those of us who live, work or play in the watershed have our own
personal connections with the river, its lakes and geography - whether
it's watching Canada Geese in the river from the vantage of Mexicali
Rosa's, fishing in a favourite spot on a lake, canoeing in the Tay
Marsh, hosting tourists in a B&B, watering cattle or simply drinking
Town of Perth water.
We want to hear from you. In this edition of the Tay Times, we want to
include 8-12 personal reflections -- or vignettes -- that capture your
relationship with the Tay. These will be published under the banner 'My
Tay'. This is your opportunity to rhapsodize about some part of the Tay
that warms your heart, conjures a moment of history, reflects what you
see, or otherwise expresses a moment in time of the Tay.
Also, if you have photos that augment or highlight your prose, please
submit those too.
Please keep your submissions short, no more than 150 words.
Email them to Susan Brandum, editor of the Tay Watershed Times, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Send them by Apr. 14, 2009.
Include your name (for publication), your location in the Tay Watershed
(village, hamlet, lake, road, intersection) and your phone number, so Sue
can clarify anything with you.
The decision on the final inclusions of text and photos rests with the
