Hi! I’m Tate Fernald. I was born on February 14, 2020. My proud parents are Melissa and Mitch Fernald, and my older brother Camden adores me. My “Nana” and “Papa” are Danielle and Don Fernald and they tell me that I’m their fourth (and final) grandson. I love Cedar Springs and can’t wait to give my Papa a run for his money on the golf course.

O’Brien, party of three! Carleigh and James welcomed Hayden Isabelle O’Brien on April 8th, 2020 at 7:05 p.m., weighing 8 lb. 7 oz. Hayden is a happy, active, curious little girl and has been thoroughly enjoying her first summer as a Springer! She loves naps on the beach, golf cart rides with her fur sister Izzy, and watching the trees around the cottage. She’s the perfect addition to our family and we love her so much!

Introducing our grandson:Ripken Schmelzer! His parents are Jaclyn Conacher and Ryan Schmelzer. His birthday is May 5th, 2020. He’s an amazing baby, who loves eating, sleeping and being outside at the cottage. He was named after his Dad’s favourite baseball player, Cal Ripken Jr. Hopefully, he’s the first of many babies for Ryan and Jaclyn, who are BOTH amazing parents.

Welcome too, to the newest little ones at the Schmeer cottage: Sophie, daughter of Steve and Rose; and Michael, son of Christine and Tim.

My grandson Emery Sage Brouwers was born on April 2nd, 2020, weighing in at 7 lbs 14 oz. His parents are Josh Brouwers and Katie King. They live in Golden BC. Emery was born with the backdrop of The Big Tooth Mts and two rivers, Kicking Horse and Columbia, which flow through the town. I visited him for the first time on July 6th for a week. It was so special and so hard to say goodbye.

Introducing: Cameron William Gall, aka Mr. Steal Your Heart.

Cameron arrived on July 16th, 2019 and put a smile on all our faces, joy in our souls and unconditional love in our hearts!! Proud parents are Jordan and Kim.

Sandy and Geoff Ingham welcomed their first grandchild Raelyn, on November 15th, 2019 to parents Sarah and Christopher. She weighed 7lbs 10oz. Raelyn, even at nine months, loves to make people laugh. We think she’s going to be quite the comedian. She’s an absolute sweetheart! We can’t wait to have her enjoy the fun and new friends at Cedar Springs.

Alexander Kingsmill: born June 2019; the son of Josh & Jane; sibling to James & Mariana. Here he is, sitting on one of Brent’s machines. We worry about his adjustment in the fall, going back to Toronto, far from free-ranging on the beach, golf carts and wagon rides, and spending time with Grannie and Grampa Dick and his cousins at Cedar Springs!
