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
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 'Times' Committee.

We're looking forward to seeing some beautiful vignettes and photos.
