Come find us at the Lakeshore Heights Family Fun Day! This event takes place on Saturday, July 8, at the covered community structure on West Street (at Lakeview Ave). Stop by our table to learn more about Lake Winnipeg and what we're doing to protect it. We'll also have some of our unique fundraising products with us!
We are thrilled to launch a new collaboration with Barn Hammer Brewing Company. Big Water, a limited-edition, lake-themed gose, will be available while supplies last for the month of July. Barn Hammer’s generous co-owners Sable and Tyler Birch will be donating $1 from the sale of each bottle to LWF. Giving has never been so refreshing!
“Going to the lake is an essential part of summer for so many of us in Manitoba,” says Alexis Kanu, LWF’s executive director. “We’re excited to celebrate local breweries and local lakes – two ingredients for a great Manitoba summer!”
Get your Scottish on at this family-friendly festival in East Selkirk! Activities include dancing, piping, drumming, food, markets, heavy games, a “wee folk” area, living history displays and more.
