Descendants of Alexander Ross and Margaret Noble met once more in Holstein Ontario on Civic Holiday, August 4, 2003. Photographs were taken with Pat's Fujifilm Digital Camera "FinePix 4700 zoom".SPORTS AND CHAT
The reunion for 2003 had a light turnout of just over 50 persons on Civic Holiday, Monday, August 4. Nevertheless there was a good opportunity to renew acquaintances with cousins from four of the surviving branches descended from Alexander Ross and Margaret Noble, and a new generation of youngsters enjoyed the sports and questionnaire.
Can you spot the attentive 15-month-old youngster to the right in the first picture? I'll bet he is planning a "sleeper play" to outwit the older racers. Games included the "shoe kick" and the "water balloon toss".
