Betula Lake 2016 Highway Clean Up

Posted on: May 25, 2016  |  

Once again, on Saturday June 4th 2016, our Betula Lake Directors of the  Whiteshell Cottagers Association, in conjunction with the Betula Lake Cottager’s Association will be conducting their  Annual 307 Highway  clean up.

Starting at 10:00 AM, volunteers are  meet at the Cook Shack in order to form teams of two to cover  predetermined designated routes. The Clean Up routes begin on Hwy. 307 east of the Blocks 5-6-7 Block Road/ Boat Launch Sign and proceed West up to and including the Petro Forms Parking lot on Highway 307. If we have enough volunteers, we may be able also to cover the turn off from 307 to the boat launch?

Depending on the number of volunteers, each team should be able to cover 2 – 3 kms and  take no more then a couple of hours.

At the end of the day, 5:00 PM, a Barbeque hosted by the WCA will be held at Tom and Arlene’s cottage for all of the volunteers and their families.

Subject to weather conditions a tentative rain date will be rescheduled for Sunday, June 5th.

Same time. Same places.

Caddy Air Field – Manitoba Historical SocietyDuring the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Canadian federal government employed able-bodied, unemployed men to build public infrastructure. In return for their labour, each man was provided with food, shelter, and 20 cents per day. In Manitoba, three construction gangs worked in the Whiteshell Forest Reserve (today’s Whiteshell Provincial Park) to build roads to enable the development of tourism in this part of the province. Between Fall 1933 and Spring 1934, one hundred men from the Caddy Lake Relief Camp, under the supervision of Col. Logie Armstrong from the Department of National Defense, built an emergency airfield at this site about 1.5 miles west of the Ontario border. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning, we found a small water craft (paddle boat) adrift in Big Whiteshell Lake. It was found floating in the middle of the lake no where near a cabin. I was wondering if you could post something for me? If they can identify what it is then we will know it is going to the rightful owner. They can message me to identify what it is and for pick up information. Or call me at 1 (204) 348-3294. ... See MoreSee Less
