Dear Canoe Builders and Friends,
Early Autumn Greetings!
It’s been a rewarding summer of birch bark canoe building – with a focus on community camaraderie, cultural awareness, learning, and respect. Thank you to everyone who participated or supported the Birch Bark Canoe Project and Ely Folk School.
We are wrapping up the season this week with a regular canoe building session on Tuesday, Sept. 18th from 6-9 p.m., and a potluck on Wednesday, Sept. 19th at 6 p.m., followed by moving the canoe into storage and site clean-up. Mike Chaffin will be grilling on Wednesday and requests a count – please reply by Tuesday evening. EFS Birch Bark Canoe Project T-shirts will be available for $20 as well. Please consider offering comments or suggestions for program improvement.
All are welcome!
