Norway House York Boat Days!
NWC was proud to be the main sponsor of the 36th annual Treaty and York Boat Days in Norway House!
Held since 1973, Treaty and York Boat ays is an annual summer festival hosted by the Norway House Cree Nation. The event commemorates the community's history during the time of the fur trade and emphasizes family and cultural values. Teams from all over Manitoba, neighbouring provinces and the United States enter teams to race traditional York Boats through the Nelson River. The top prize consists of $25,000 cash!
Congratulations to the Mossy Bay Gamblers from Norway House who rowed the Northern boat to victory in the men's division!
Along with donating a boat, motor and trailer for the auction, NWC sponsored the main stage for the Marianna's Trench concert and as always, the team at the Northern Store sold a variety of goodies at their canteen.
