The Georgina Island Storytelling Project

Our stories celebrate our heritage and identity as Chippewa people. They preserve and teach our Indigenous ways of knowing and knowledge for the future generations of Georgina Island. In the tradition of oral history over generations, our youth - in their turn - will carry on this legacy to protect and share our proud history and who we are as the Chippewas of Georgina Island.

Forests Ontario and Chippewas of Georgina Island Environment invite you to join us June 12, 2018.  The workshop is open to Georgina Island First Nation Members. A light lunch and refreshments will be provided. For more information contact Heather Charles at heather.charles@georginaisland.com  Click on the flyer for more information.

LAKE SIMCOE WATER LEVELS: STATUS REPORT for May 10th, 2018

 

Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority

120 Bayview Parkway, Newmarket, Ont., L3Y 3W3

Telephone: (905) 895-1281 Fax: (905) 853-5881

 

 

Issued to the following groups:

 

1)         Municipalities and Local Conservation Authorities

2)         School Boards, Police and Media

4)            LSRCA Board of Directors and all LSRCA Employees

 

Date:   May 10th, 2018

Time:   3:00 p.m.

 

It is expected that the water level in Lake Simcoe will continue to lower through next week.  However, the risk of flooding continues to exist in low-lying areas due to impacts of wind action, rain and continued high flows in the system.

 

The high lake levels will also continue to impact the dykes in the Polder areas.  Polders are low-lying lands adjacent to the Lake and are protected by dykes.

 

A summary of recent Lake Simcoe water levels can be found below:

Ahneen! Well, it is hard to believe that it is already time to say Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

As we celebrate this holiday season, we want to extend our best wishes to everyone for a safe, happy and healthy Christmas with family and friends. As we reflect back on the year, and the many challenges we have faced in years gone by as a community, we have remained strong and determined. This can be a difficult time for those who are missing loved ones, and so we take the time to give thanks and special acknowledgements to those who have passed on. Let us use this time to reflect and count our blessings. We give thanks to our youth, our veterans, elders, and women and men who have contributed so much over time.

The greatest gift we could exchange this season is to serve one another.

May we ask you all to remember your neighbours at this time of year, especially the elderly and those who live alone.

We would also like to extend a special welcome to those who have come home to Georgina Island for the holidays to be with family and hope that you have a wonderful time.

Our very best wishes go to those who are sick at home or in hospital this Christmas and we wish you a speedy recovery.

To all who are spending Christmas away from the island, we would like to extend Christmas greetings from Georgina Island.

From your Council and your dedicated Band staff, we wish you and your family all the love and blessings of the season.

Merry Christmas!
