Below are links to two copies of the history of Lake Annis.  #1 is a text version only.  #2 has pictures and supplements added, thanks to John Goudey who provided me with his mothers records of pictures and news clippings etc.  You may, as I did find it interesting to read version #1 first and let your imagination construct the community in you mind.  Then go through version #2 and see the community come to life and in pictures and additional text.  Many hours of work have gone into this presentation and much more work will be done.  This web site is paid for by  GrassRoutes Computer Services Ltd.  It is still under construction.  We have done our best to keep it free from error.  If you have any comments please email me [email protected] . Be sure to type Lake Annis in subject line. Thank you.

I hope you enjoy your look at this, one of Yarmouth's Nova Scotia's many unique communities.

Comments:   I attended Camp Moosewa during the summers of 1936 and 1937.  I grew up in Belmont, Mass.  Mrs. George Cain (Mater) was a very good friend of my mother and grandmother.  The Cain's lived very close to us.  I did
not know Vic very well as he lived in the Virginia area and was active in selling school cirricula to private schools in that area.  Carroll, who was called Gint, was one of my teachers in Junior High School.
  Mater and  Pater passed many years ago.  Gint did have a son who is a few years younger that me, but I have no idea where he resides. (I am now 82.
  I would be interested in having contact with other Mooswa fellows or friends of the Cains.

Hello - would you have any information regarding medals given out? I have one that has Camp Mooswa for Boys and the Latin phrase Esse Quam Videri (to be rather than seem to be)with a moose rifle and fishing rod with a boy paddling a canoe and it shows tents on the shore. On the back it is engraved Captain and underneath the year 1941.  It is sterling and would have been worn on a chain. 
Thank you,
