Update May 22 – Volunteers are needed to help load sand bags at the following locations:

8 Foot Falls Road in Pointe du Bois , Otter Falls Ball Diamond, and across from Nutimik Maintenance Yard.  From there, volunteers can also be deployed from there to cottages where help is needed.

We have put out a call for sandbagging volunteers on our Facebook site at https://www.facebook.com/WhiteshellCottagers/

We believe Eleanor Lake, Otter Falls, Dorothy Lake, Barrier Bay, Nutimik areas are the areas with the greatest need.
Report at 11:00 AM May 21 – Help could also be used at Otter Falls sand bagging operation to handfill & help load sandbags – sandbag machine running flat out but long line up there.
If you need volunteer help with sandbagging, please add a comment to the Facebook posting.   Include your contact info.

If you can volunteer to help please reply back to the cottager in need via Facebook.

We will continue to update here as we receive more information.
