Chippewa Beaches Permanently Open

June 30, 2017

The health unit has adopted a new approach to advising swimmers as to the conditions of area beaches. Instead of doing once a week testing where results can change within hours the health unit has opted to permanently post a rating based on five years of data. Like before swimmers must use their own judgement on whether to enter the water or not.

 

 

Flipper Flanagan's Flat Footed Four To Launch Chippewa Park's  Sundays In The Park Concert Series

June 30, 2017
 
The 2017 Chippewa Park’s Sundays in the Park Concerts will launch this Sunday featuring Thunder Bay’s Flipper Flaaigan’s Flat Footed Four.  The concerts, held on the lake side of the Pavilion, are funded by the City of Thunder Bay’s Recreation and Culture Division and organized by The Friends of Chippewa Park. 
 
“We are excited to have Flipper Flanagan’s Flat Footed Four launching our 2017 concert series” said Friends President Lorraine Lortie-Krawczuk.  “Given that this is their 50th year of entertaining this community and have performed at Chippewa Park over many of those years, it is fitting that the series starts with them this year.” 
 
The concerts run from 2 PM to 4 PM each Sunday until the Labour Day Weekend. 
 
The concerts will run rain or shine, with the concert being held in the Pavilion’s Dance Hall in the event of inclement weather. Please bring your own lawn chairs. 
 
The other acts scheduled for July are as follows: 
 
July 9:  Gravel Road

Help Us Develop A Future For The Wildlife Exhibit

Thunder Bay City Council, by a vote of 10 to 2 voted to permanently close Chippewa Park's Wildlife Exhibit as of May 1, 2017.

We would love to see our Wildlife Exhibit become a home for injured and abandoned wild animals. Those animals that can be rehabilitated and released will go back into the wild and those unable to be released will be cared for at the facility. It can be a learning experience for the public and schools as well as making it a ‘second chance’ for the animals. Much like the Bear and Wolf Conservation area in Ely Minnesota, that have earned recognition all over the world for their facilities and processes.  

We CAN do the same!

 Our ultimate goal is to lease the land from the City and care and maintain the animals and the exhibit. To get there we need to do a lot of research and to prepare a business plan, a fund-raising plan, as well as an animal care plan. To do this work we need your financial help.

We want to apply to NOHFC or FedNor for a one year internship and need to immediately raise $10,000 for our share of the intern and for the tools necessary to prepare the required plans. The funding agency will pay 90% of the wage and benefit cost of the intern. Ideally, the successful intern will be a graduate of a veterinarian school who will bring the knowledge gained to the position.

We Thank YOU for your continued support and look forward to working with the public in order to maintain and continue to give these animals a home.If you want to help support the work of The Friends of Chippewa Park please feel free to make a donation to TFOCP.  Any donation over $15 will not only ensure you get a Charitable Receipt but a membership in the organization as well.
