On September 26th, 2012 a tree planting ceremony was held at Doan's Cemetery on 2nd concession in honour of the Queen's Jubilee. The Ontario Horticultural Society has awarded one tree to each of its nine districts. The Doan group in Port Colborne was one of the lucky receivers. We thought that since it had to celebrate the monarchy it would be most appropriate to plant the tree in the United Empire Loyalist cemetery here in Port Colborne. If you were at the International Reunion in Plymouth, Massachusetts you will remember the information about Jerry Fisher and his work in getting the cemetery recognized as a United Empire Loyalist Cemetery and that ultimately renamed as the Doan's Cemetery.

  Pictures of the ceremony have been sent to the Queen for the official Jubilee recordbook.
