Put your family history in the spotlight
There’s nothing like flipping through an old family photo album. From unforgettable sunsets to wish-we-could-forget fashions, these cherished pictures remind us of how special lake life really is.
So let’s celebrate it!
Lake Winnipeg Memories is a vintage photo exhibit curated by you! Launching on July 3, this is your chance to showcase your family’s unique relationship with Lake Winnipeg. We want to see your grandparent’s first trip to the beach, the legendary cottage reunion, or the time your great-uncle finally learned how to waterski!
Participating is easy. All you have to do is:
- Scan your favourite family snaps and vintage photos
- Email them, along with a story, to firstname.lastname@example.org
- You can also share your photos on social media using #lakewpgmemories
We’ll print your shots and add them to our living exhibit at The Beach Exchange, located across from Saffies General Store in Albert Beach. New prints will be added to the gallery throughout July and August, giving you a space to relive your lake history and create new memories with your family.
To cap off the summer, join us on Aug. 19 for “Bow ties and board shorts” – a closing gala with a beachy twist. We’ll be raising a glass to celebrate all our favourite Lake Winnipeg memories.
Let’s celebrate cottage life – and the essence of Lake Winnipeg summers!
Special thanks to long-time LWF supporters Lise, Jerry and the team at Saffies for partnering with us on this event.
