Laura and James go to Trout Lake, NT

on Thu, 03/05/2009 - 15:58

Some of the volunteers maintain their own blogs of their experiences while in Canada's North.

One volunteer blog is called Laura and James go to Trout Lake, NT. What it's about is fairly self-evident. As they say on their blog:

Trout Lake is a small, isolated Dene community in the Northwest Territories with a population of about 70. It is fly-in only except when the ice freezes and they build a winter road. We are volunteering here for 10 months through Frontiers Foundation, and this blog is our way of sharing some photos and keeping in touch with friends and family.

The photo is from a literacy event they had in September of 2008:

On Thursday June 26th, 2008 at 7:30am Frontiers Foundation held its annual breakfast, at the Flora McCrea Auditorium located in the Timothy Memorial Church. The one hundred guests in attendance enjoyed the breakfast buffet including the fresh fish from Batchawana Bay cooked by Bill Lohman, Olaf & Iolene Bjornaa. A silent auction was also held with generous donations from Mary Fox, Stephen Fenech, Reza Hakim and Ursula Jacko. The silent auction raised approximately $1,100. The Foundation also received a handful of donations such as the one from CIBC in the amount of $10,000 and $2,000 from our gracious hosts, Timothy Eaton Memorial Church.

The guest speaker this year was Gary Lipinski, President of Metis Nation of Ontario. He spoke passionately to the audience about the trials (literally) and tribulations of the Metis people and the struggle to be even recognized by the Canadian Government. Mr.
