Send Brian Malfesi & Adam Tenwolde to the Worlds in Hungary!

Brian Malfesi has been a member of Ridge Canoe and Kayak Club since his intermediate years at Whonnock Elementary.  
He has had much success over the years as a kayaker for our community. After his accomplishments at the first two sets of National Team Trials this spring he will represent Canada at Worlds this summer! 
Amazing how he and his K2 partner, Adam Tenwolde (Banook Canoe Club, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia) have clicked and their hope for success in Szeged, Hungary.
In the past, when Brian represented Canada on the International stage, Canoe Kayak Canada provided full funding for all expenses. Not this time! 
Are you in a position to support his efforts?

One Book Whonnock in action

Some twenty readers of George Godwin's The Eternal Forest united on a wonderful and sunny Saturday afternoon to review the history of Whonnock in the years immediately before the First World War when the Godwins lived in Whonnock. The participants, including Lucy Godwin, granddaughter of George and Dorothy Godwin, visited the places where the author and his wife lived at that time. A warm thank you to all who participated in making this a most joyful event. Click on the picture to enlarge.
One Book Whonnock welcomes all who live, work, go to school or got to church in Ruskin, Thornhill, and Whonnock. The book to be read by all participants in the 2014–2015 season is Terry Falis's The Best Laid Plans. If you are interested to join click here for their Web site for information and call Jean at 604-462-8942 to register.
