The “Howl” is sponsored by our friends at the Westport Area Outdoor Association who do a lot of good works within the community, including efforts to improve the walleye fishery via the Westport jar hatchery initiative and spawning bed restoration. This is their largest fundraiser of the year. Come out and show your support while having a great day on the ice.

The Wolfe Lake Association would love to see your pictures from the Howl. Please post on our Facebook page or email them to mmanthey@twcny.rr.com.  Thank you.

STARTBoating Initiative

The Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) in partnership with the Lifesaving Society Ontario has launched an online boating safety program with new boaters in mind — especially people who are new to Canada, who may be participating in recreational boating for the 1st time. (A study by the Lifesaving Society showed that 31% of new immigrants to Canada planned on participating in recreational boating during the summer months.) STARTBoating is a comprehensive program that utilizes a series of online, interactive videos which teach basic boating and skills to keep you safe on the water. It’s available in several languages: English, French, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi and Tagalog.
