May 14, Mary Whalen, and her three sisters, had a home-based
fundraiser, in memory of their younger sister, Elaine, who passed away
November 2015 with ovarian cancer. The money raised will be directed to

cure or treatment for all women who have battled ovarian cancer. In

purses and scarves. A number of vendors sold garden plants, baked

Excellent door prizes and raffle items were also available.

Another proud Canadian gone - M/V Peter R Cresswell
Built in Collingwood, Otario, this ship was christened M/V
Algowest on June 13, 1982. Her ties with CWB, western Canada, she ran
the grain trade as her primary source for several years, breaking cargo
records, (even her own), and setting some as well. When the grain
industry declined she went into Port Weller Dry docks in December 1997
and was converted to a self-unloader. Eight months and $20 million
later, the Algowest was redirected into Great Lakes St Lawrence Seaway
trading in a ceremony held July 10, 1998. Sunday, October 14, 2001 the
ship was re-christened Peter R. (Ross) Cresswell in honour of the
former President and CEO of Algoma Central Corporation who retired on
this day. During Peter R. Cresswell's 2003/04 winter lay-up at
Hamilton, she was again modified for handling cargos of clinker cement
and continued her career with cargos such as salt, coal, stone,
aggregate, and iron ore. Twelve years later the ol' girl was just worn
out. On Thursday, May 19, 2016 Peter R Cresswell, self-discharging bulk
carrier, flagged Canada came down through Prescott under her own power
on just one engine for the last time at 7:00 a.m. at a slow 8.7 knots.
She will be decommissioned in Montréal, before being towed out to sea
for scrapping in Turkey.
