Canada Day

Wolfe Island is named Kawehnóhkwes tsi kawè:note (translating as ‘Long Island Standing’) by the people who identify as Kanyen’kehà:ka (or Mohawks as they are commonly referred to outside their community).

This Canada Day seems to be momentous for reasons well beyond the number 150 but with encouragingly successful grassroot action let’s hope it is marked as a starting point for real change, from sea to sea to sea.

All are welcome to the Canada Day activities at the WIBC:

Rowing @ 9am

Dragon Boating @ 11:30am

Book Sale from 10am – on, Sat. & Sun.

We are grateful to share Canada Day on Wolfe Island/Kawehnóhkwes tsi kawè:note with our neighbours, friends, families, and visitors.  And thank you Wolfe Island Community Garden for opening the conversation!

Butterfingers for Kids :)

What could be more fun than Luther Wright, Ms. Marbles, blue grass and a little country for kids? How about Butterfingers for Kids at the WIBC public dock in Marysville!

The WIBC is so happy to be part of the Wolfe Island Garden Party this weekend! Bring the kids and have some island fun on Saturday. The Dragon Boat will be ready to go for a paddle in Barrett Bay following the show, and our Book Sale will be open with an abundance of kids’ books looking for readers!

Butterfingers music is chock full of bluegrass and country instruments as well as loads of wonderful harmony singing. Butterfingers for Kids plays Saturday @ 11am.
