A lightly edited partial transcription of the Colborne column on page 2 of the 4 Sep 1919 issue 
of the Simcoe Reformer newspaper. 

Mr. and Mrs. Harry E. Beemer had a week's holiday up north.

They went first to Sutton, where they were met by Mrs. Beemer's sister, Mrs. G. F. McDonald, who entertained them by an auto ride of about 15 miles from the famous summer resort Jackson Point, along the southeast shore of Lake Simcoe, on of the most beautiful drives in Ontario.

From there they spent a day with relatives at Newmarket, from where they went to Gravenhurst, Muskoka Wharf, and up the beautiful lake Beaumaris, where they were met by Mr. Beemer's cousin, J. S. Collver, who with Mrs. Collver entertained them in their usual good way.

They have a beautiful summer home on the south shore of Tanden Island, and a gasoline launch which Mr. Collver likes to drive. They took a trip up the Muskoka Lakes and river to Bracebridge, the scenery all the way being of the finest.

On their return they completed a most enjoyable outing by a visit to the Toronto Exhibition.

Mr. and Mrs. Beemer express themselves as delighted with their trip.
