    Thanks to all Directors who volunteered to take a shift (or two when needed) at last weekends Cottage Country Show. This is an excellent venue not only as an opportunity to communicate with cottage owners — a key role for a WCA Director but also network with other related organizations that are anxious to access our membership to offer new cottage products.
    During my shift, we (Bill Backman, partner Laurel and myself) talked with the owner of a water system company interested in advertising in the Whiteshell Echo and I discussed with a Mosquito and Tick Prevention Company their interest in advertising in the Echo and the potential target market in doing so.
    WCA owes a deep debt of gratitude to Tom Cutts, Director from Betula Lake who not only took two shifts at the Show but set up and dismantled our Booth (Number 63) bringing all the supplies and displays seen in our booth photos on our website. Tom has stepped forward to undertake this task at least for the last two years and maybe longer. No one does it better!
    Thanks Tom.
    And thanks Angela Hogan or Kristin Pingatore for posting this article!

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
