On September 8, 2019, Alexander Bell Harvey turned 100 years old. Family and friends got together at the Fairhaven long-term care facility, where he and Hazel now live, for a celebration. Well in excess of 100 people attended that day. Among the attractions Al was able to offer were: greetings from Queen Elizabeth, the Governor-General, the Prime Minister, the Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario, the Premier of Ontario, and the Mayor of Peterborough. He also had copies of his memoirs written from the perspective of a newcomer to Canada, a signalman in the Canadian Army during World War II, and a brief history of the Harvey family in Scotland. These memoirs can be found at the following locations:
