edition print, valued at $600, of a painting by acclaimed artist Sheila Ballantyne. Tomahawk Rock
is a Park landmark, located on Big Bluff Island in Charleston Lake. The print will be on display at
the gatehouse beginning 11 May or or visit The Inspirations Art Gallery website.
Tickets for each raffle cost $2.00 apiece or $5.00 for 3.
They will be available beginning 11 May at the Park Gatehouse, the Friends’ Store, and local

The winners of our 2011 canoe raffle were Andrew Silver of Toronto and Joe Cvitovic of Montreal .
The winner of the camping gear was Cathy Donnelly of Tweed, Ontario. Her family has made a tradition of camping in the Park on Thanksgiving Weekend, where they love walking the trails. She was particularly anxious to win the camping gear, and insisted to her family that she had in fact bought that winning ticket.
