Letter from Graham Fawcett

Message From Graham Fawcett, CVF President

Hello all,

Blessed by incredible weather, good spirits, excellent walks and a lot of friendship, the combined group of walkers from the Club Volkssport-Nord Sud and the Dartmouth Volkssport Club have returned to the mainland from a week of walking on the Magdalen Islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

Congratulations to Lionel and Lisette, plus all the others who pitched in to help make this a most memorable Volkssport event.

Imagine more than 150Volkssporters on five tiny islands - that's visibility!

I have begun to receive some pictures taken last week and will put up the best that I receive, if people want to send them to me by email attachment at

The web site address to see the pictures already posted is:

Bookmark it for future reference and visit often to see the most recent additions.

Again, congratulations to all involved. Your hard work over the past year to make this possible had paid off.

I know the participants will be talking about this past week for years to come.




On Sunday Sept 9th the CBIH will hold its first annual memorial walk in honour of Shirley Boutillier.

The Walk Event Start Point is the junction of Trout Brook Rd and Ben-George Road Marion Bridge off Hwy 327.

Registration begins at 1:30pm. Walk Time 2:00pm

In accordance with the wishes of Shirley's family there will only be a very short dedication and we will step off as per the posted time, this was one of Shirley's reminders to the walk leaders--- "its 2 o'clock time to get walking".

Bill and Family have invited the group to their home at 35 Sherwood Dr Marion Bridge, this is a very short distance from the Walk Start Point located off the Ben-George Road.

There will be a pot luck dinner immediately after the walk event, please bring any type of food item that you may specialize in.

The Ways and Means committee (Barb & Cal) will also supply a bbq of hamburgers/hotdogs & soft drinks.
